Tell me why

Dear Editor:

I am an American citizen hence I have to question our foreign policy.

Why are we supporting a brutal occupation?

Why are we backing a government that ignores international law?

Why are we giving billions of dollars to our “best friend” resulting in our isolation from the rest of the world?

Why are we ignoring a clear democratic election and instead labeling the winner as a terrorist organization?

Why are we providing planes and bombs resulting in the death and destruction of a helpless civilian population?

Why do we stand by, our media in particular, who claim this is a defensive operation?

If you can, tell me why.

Jane Baker Veit
