Why Are We in Iraq?

RECEIVED Tue., Sept. 13, 2005

Austin Chronicle,
    I would like to add my voice of support for Cindy Sheehan, who is demanding that President Bush explain his reasons for sending our troops to war with Iraq [“Sheehan's Field of Dreams,” News, Aug. 19]. One by one the reasons for rushing to war have been debunked, refuted, or proven to be false. Yet, each day more and more people are dying in Iraq. When young men and women join the armed forces, they promise to put their lives on the line to defend our country. We, in turn, have an obligation to be sure that when we put our troops in harm's way, the threat is real. No more lives should be given to the Iraq war.
