Remind them who we are


To the Editor:

On Sept. 11, 2001 Afghan suicide bombers attacked the Twin Towers in New York. They flew two 747 passenger planes into the buildings, killing thousands of American people. We have been at war with the Middle East ever since and thousands of American citizens have been killed.

One of the main leaders of the Taliban, Saddam Hussein, was captured on Dec. 14, 2003 and was brought to trial on Dec. 30, 2006. It took three years to kill a man who tortured and killed millions of people from the year he was elected as dictator of Iraq (1979) to the day he was captured in 2003.

Ever since then we have been sending thousands of American troops to the Middle East, building a better government and country. While we are busy HELPING them, Americans are busy getting attacked and killed by Afghan terrorists. We are too worried about being friends with the Middle East to bother looking for the Taliban, when most of the Afghan people want to kill the "infidel," which are Americans. This belief is part of their religion and they are not going to change anything about it.

When we actually do capture members of the Taliban, we keep them as prisoners for questioning. The members of the Taliban are sworn to secrecy; no matter what you tell them, or do to them they will not give out any information. Also, keeping them alive has the risk of the other members of the Taliban trying to free them, killing any infidel that gets in their way.

The Taliban has no problem killing Americans without trial or imprisoning them, so why should we waste our time with trials? We treat Afghan people with an amazing amount of respect, and we receive none. I think it is time for the United States to stop worrying about being friends, and step it up, and show that we are still America, the country that takes no disrespect from anyone.

Sincerely,

—Kirsten Dawson
