Likens bombing of embassies to World War III

-A A +A

A recent letter by B.J. Gillum urges us to stay out of war. But it appears to me that we are already in World War III.

Bombings of embassies in Kenya and Tanganyika were acts of war, as was the bombing of the USS Cole.

The first bombing of the World Trade Center was still another and, of course, a “better” job was done on that building on Sept. 11, 2001.

This war is quite different than the two I was involved in, World War II and Korea, and will have to be approached differently, of course.

The folks we’re fighting are fanatics of Islam who, it seems to me, are quite willing to bomb other Muslims just because they have a somewhat different religious heredity.

Others, smarter than me, are going to have to figure out how to do it without bankrupting us with more trillion dollar deficits.
