Letters...Why don’t you return to the status quo ante?

Dispatch from the pro-war zone

Thank you for including “War Stories” (October/04). I believe I speak for many U of C alumni who are thankful for the efforts of Paul Wolfowitz, John Ashcroft, and the thousands of other men and women with the Bush Administration and in our military who are working hard to win the war on terrorism. I’m equally thankful for the leaders and military of the other countries who are our allies in the war. I salute all these people and pray for their continued courage, perseverance, and success.

To graduates of the U of C who reside in the “anti-war zone” or who are aligned with Europe’s appeasement front, don’t worry: President Bush and his supporters aren’t going to throw you to the wolves. They’re working on securing the future for all Americans—even those who feel they no longer owe their principal allegiance to this country.
