'Not the time'

You reported recently that a majority of people want out of the war, now. KMPH Fox TV news did a poll of their viewers on March 19. I voted, and the results popped up on my computer screen. At 10:29 p.m., 38% said pull out now, 62% said don't.

The message is that although war is a terrible, cursed thing, the majority of people understand why we are there, what we are doing and that we must stay until we get the job done.

If we don't, we will pay a thousand times over and die in our beds. Those who don't believe that are blind.

Yes, bring home the troops when the time is right. Now is not the time. Pray for the brave soldiers who fight to preserve our country. They and their families (like the Keith Butterfields) and those who fought before (like Fred Machado) [story March 19] are heroes.
