To the Catholic Sentinel:

It’s ironic that the March 16 editorial asking for patience, began with a provocative and divisive proclamation. It is obviously referring to the Iraq war with enough liberal bias to require the monotonous response for truth’s sake. 

How many years were sanctions, inspections, and negotiations allowed for Saddam Hussein to act like a civilized human being? I believe it was 12. Saddam invaded Kuwait, gassed his own people, danced inspectors around and foolishly misled the world. Hasty?

Ahmadinejad’s provocations are exponentially worse than Saddam’s. He admits to wanting to instigate the apocalypse beginning with the destruction of Israel. He is advancing Iran’s missile program.
