Re: your Jan. 5 letters, â€śSoldiers protesting Iraq Warâ€?:
Blind obedience masquerades as patriotism when dissent is equated withÂ cowardice.
As a vet myself, I salute those who penetrate the labyrinth of governmental deceit, act upon the principles enunciated by American justices at the Nuremberg Trials, and refuse to dismissÂ these principles merely as victor trying vanquished.
Itâ€™s too bad we donâ€™t have more like U.S. Rep. Jack Murtha, D-Pa., a decorated Marine of 37 years who takes the heat of the chicken hawks on Iraq and keeps on going.
