Defending freedom at any cost

Tea with Osama bin Laden?

Take it to the can


Tea with Osama bin Laden?

Re: "Battling the U.S. warmongers," Sept. 18

To the Editor:

Reading the opinions of fellow Western students has been, simply told, irritating.

After the horrific attacks against the United States, people are rightfully speaking out in The Gazette. They have proven their ability to play the political correctness card, refrain from taking a stand and hide behind such passive guiles as being an educated person against the killing of even more innocents.

"In attacking Afghanistan, innocent civilians may very well be killed," Kevin Shultz wrote.

Obviously nobody wants to see innocent people killed in Afghanistan, but nobody wants to see another skyscraper or perhaps a sports arena destroyed here in the future.

These fantastic dreams of Kevin Shultz, with "educated" people solving these issues through simple communication are beyond absurd. I wonder if some feel we should call up Osama bin Laden for tea and a chat.

Attacks against our principles of freedom and democracy will not be tolerated and I take solace in knowing that at least our leaders will stand up and make sure those responsible are brought to justice.
