Congress and the people of this nation were told we were in imminent danger of attack by Iraq's chemical and WMDs. Danger was so imminent we could not allow UN Inspections to complete or form a truly unified coalition against Iraq. The U.S., being strong of will and righteous in our quest, would go it alone against the looming forces of evil. So, Bush formed a weak/symbolic alliance, preemptively invaded Iraq, alienated the UN and significant multinational supporters, deeply divided our nation, depleted our budget surplus and created the largest budget deficit in our history; only to find there were no WMDs or imminent danger.

I am responding to Rhoda McComb's letter in the Sept. 23 issue of the Valley Sun regarding the war in Iraq. In defending the war in Iraq, Ms. McComb states that "September 11th [was] the start of this war." This is the big lie that the Bush Administration is pushing on the American public, and seemingly much of the public is buying. September 11th was a terrible event, one I'm sure that none of us will ever forget. We must do everything in our power to ensure that such an event is never allowed to recur.

In addition to the nearly 3,000 who died on 9/11, more than 1,000 Americans have died in Iraq; over 100 American military have died in Afghanistan. We have been told that the attacks of 9/11/01 were the result of Osama bin Laden/Al Queda. That was the basis for our attack on Afghanistan.

Re: Bush Can't Protect Us (letter to the editor, La Cañada Valley Sun, Sept. 16): I too am greatly saddened about the 1,000 plus young men and women who have given their lives for the war on terrorism in Iraq. Let us also not forget the almost 3,000 Americans who died on September 11, the day that marked the start of this war. I can't believe any thinking American would refer to this as a war "for the enrichment of a few." This is a war to protect America and our way of life.

Approximately 60 people, some of them grouped in families, gathered for a candlelight vigil last Thursday evening at La Cañada's Memorial Park. All came to mourn the 1,000 American troops dead in Iraq, which was announced by the media two days earlier, on Sept. 7. The vigil was led by Conchita Marusich, who organized the grassroots gathering with Ellen Young. "I was watching a collage on TV of these people who are just?gone," Marusich said. "There were just too many young faces.
