    WEATHER Today's forecast calls for partly sunny skies with a high temperature around 49 degrees. The low temperature is expected to be around 36 degrees tonight. TRAFFIC Here are today's morning traffic issues. FROM LAST NIGHT... Teen boy killed when...
  • Assassination is better than a trial?

    I am shocked by your editorial stating the death of Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi at the hands of the rebels who deposed him was the best possible outcome and that "had he been captured alive, the nation's fledgling leaders would have been forced to...
  • Time to leave Iraq

    Time to leave Iraq
    President Barack Obama's announcement Friday that American troops will be out of Iraq by the end of the year was greeted with jeers in Congress and on the presidential campaign trail from Republicans who said the U.S. was ignominiously bowing to...
  • Is U.S. really leaving Iraq?

    Is U.S. really leaving Iraq?
    "After nearly nine years, America's war in Iraq will be over." With his Oct. 21 statement on our withdrawal of troops from Iraq by year-end, President Barack Obama is keeping his promise to the American people for complete withdrawal of U.S. troops and...
  • Home for Christmas

    Home for Christmas
    This week, the last U.S. combat troops left Iraq. After more than eight years of fighting an ill-conceived, inexcusably prolonged war made more devastating by official ineptitude and hubris, America's soldiers are coming home for Christmas. The nation...
  • Iraq withdrawal: An end to the nonsense talk of 'American empire'

    Iraq withdrawal: An end to the nonsense talk of 'American empire'
    And so it ends. The United States is leaving Iraq. I'm solidly in the camp that sees this as a strategic blunder. Iraqi democracy is fragile and Iran's desire to undermine it is strong. Also, announcing our withdrawal is a weird way to respond to a...
  • Ignoring climate change science isn't smart

    Richard Haddad's anti-science screed ("Get past alarmism on global warming," Oct. 26) reminds me uncannily of the previous White House's readiness to disregard well-grounded warnings from their political opponents, as when Bush administration officials...
  • Iraq's WMD were a mirage, despite claims to the contrary

    There is no dispute that Iraq used chemical weapons against its own people in the 1980s and in the aftermath of the Persian Gulf War, when Saddam Hussein was most threatened with regime change. But has letter writer Michael DeCicco, who accused The Sun...
  • Did Saddam have WMDs before the U.S. invasion in 2003?

    Paul Schlitz's letter about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction contained so many factual errors that it requires correction ("Iraq's WMD were a mirage, despite claims to the contrary," Dec. 30). First, in my letter I never suggested that The...
  • Explain again why we invaded Iraq?

    After two letters in attempt to justify himself and the invasion of Iraq ("Iraq's chemical weapons stocks were well documented," Dec. 28, and "Did Saddam have WMDs before the U.S. invasion in 2003?" Jan. 2) I still can't figure out what Michael DeCicco is...
  • Lessons learned in Iraq, Rwanda

    Letter writer Paul R. Schlitz Jr. can't seem to grasp the fact that an acknowledgment of Iraq's potential to harbor weapons of mass destruction doesn't necessarily indicate current agreement with the decision to invade, nor does it require someone to...
  • Time to end misguided foreign wars

    First I saw the headline detailing a strike on a military base ("5 U.S. soldiers killed in strike on Baghdad base," June 7) and then on the following page a warning that a decade-long conflict may needed to be extended ("Gates: Afghan job not done"). What...
