To Bill Compher:
In the first place, the Iraqi War was unnecessary, unjust, and its initiation was based on false premises.
The United States has now become the antithesis of efforts to control nuclear weapons, by abrogating international agreements negotiated and supported by all previous presidents beginning with Dwight Eisenhower. We also oppose control or prohibition of land mines and cluster bombs, and are not meeting our commitments to destroy weapons of mass destruction including chemical and biological weapons.
Using depleted uranium is just one of a litany of issues that need to be addressed, but the decisive voices will be those of the general public, which seem largely ignorant or supportive of the policies named above. Veterans for Peace and other organizations with similar commitments can play an important role and I wish you well.”
