War and peace
Re “Women in Turkey Assail U.S. Envoy,” Sept. 29
In Ankara, Turkey, Undersecretary of State Karen Hughes stated to a group of Turkish women: “You’re concerned about war, and no one likes war.” But, she said, “to preserve the peace, sometimes my country believes war is necessary.”
I beg to differ. The Bush administration believes war is necessary, but not all U.S. citizens. We, like the women in Ankara, know that war is not necessary for peace, nor can it ever achieve peace after destroying the citizens and the culture of a country.
