This letter addresses the following remark made by Congressman Dean Heller to the Nevada Legislature on April 3:
"I truly believe if we're not fighting it in Iraq, we're going to be fighting it on the shores of America."
It may be that the congressman did not notice it was the U.S. that invaded Iraq; Iraq did not invade the U.S. There is no evidence that Iraq ever intended to invade the U.S. Further, most everyone who has been paying attention now knows that the present administration committed a fraud upon the people to justify the invasion of a sovereign nation, without a declaration of war as is the prerogative of the U.S. Congress. I sincerely hope that this remark made by the congressman is not indicative of his intelligence or ignorance.
To continue this insane, colossal, disastrous blunder is criminal, to say the least. I have very seldom agreed with U.S. Sen. Reid, and Democrats in general, but they are right this time.
It remains to be seen whether or not they will follow through as they are promising. It matters not what your party affiliation is, what is right is what matters. Thanks, Harry, for standing up for what is right.
