Sometimes war is only option that remains
To the editor:
In his letter, Warren E. Whitworth says he was in Vietnam and saw death. Then Whitworth knows that when you're attacked you must defend yourself. We were attacked on Sept. 11, 2001.
Those who protested the war in Vietnam are responsible for brothers, husbands and fathers not coming home alive. These protests broke the sprit of many soldiers who were in combat. These soldiers no longer had the spirit to fight. If you do not have the spirit to fight, the odds are greater that you will die.
Whitworth should know that innocent people die in war. I personally hate war, yet I know that war is sometimes the only option that remains.
