What Is The 'Noble Cause'?

excerpts from a letter by Amy Branham. August 21, 2005

Mr. President, you continue to insist that there is a link between 9/11 and Iraq when it is very common knowledge that this is not true. The only link between 9/11 and Iraq is you and your continued insistence on lying to the American people, and the world, that this is true. Sure, you are fooling a few people, but more and more people are waking up, doing their own homework and feeling betrayed by you.

Furthermore, you can't decide what the justification for continuing to be in Iraq is. That justification changes from week to week, I guess in response to how well the American people are accepting your excuses to stay there.

So, Mr. President, exactly what is the "noble cause" that my son and the other sons and daughters are dying for? It's not the liberation of Iraq and it's not for Democracy, because most of the people of the Middle East don't want democracy. It's not to fight terrorism because we are only fanning the flames of terrorists every day that American troops are in Iraq. It is not to make America safer because you have done nothing to make America safer.

Your "noble cause" couldn't possibly have anything to do with giving the Iraqi people a better life, because their lives are worse now, not better. Our borders are wide open for terrorists to come across, but you insist on keeping them open to make your pal, Vincente Fox, happy. Your "noble cause" changes from week to week.

I believe your "noble cause" is oil and blood money for those good buddies of yours who are making money off this war. Your "noble cause" is to go down in history as a War President, something you are proud of and have worked very hard to accomplish. While you sit in your nice, comfortable home, work out for two hours a day and get on with your life so you can maintain balance, you need to think long and hard about what a truly noble cause is. You have no idea.
