War protests: Peace shows troop support
July 3, 2008 · Updated 9:41 PM
I was disappointed in the headline of the Saturday, Feb. 15, Whidbey News-Times, Pro-troops rally happens today, which implies that a rally held by the Island County Republican Party to support President Bushs war policy is somehow pro-troops. Nothing could be further from the truth!
A policy, which for the sake of a moneyed few, puts our service men and women in harms way is not in the least in support of those men and women! Rather, a policy of a peaceful, diplomatic resolution to the current political impasse is far more in support of these brave men and women.
