  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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'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...
  • U.S. slow to meet needs, refugees say

    U.S. slow to meet needs, refugees say
    Mustafa Hamad Rassoul doesn't see how his family can survive. Back in Baghdad, the 55-year-old Iraqi Kurd says, the money he made running a clothing shop was more than enough to house and feed his two wives and 10 children. But here in Syria, where he...
  • Unsettled

    Unsettled
    It's not that Muhammad Shumri imagined building a new life in Baltimore would be easy. But he didn't expect it to be so hard. The 48-year-old physician was a high-ranking official in the Iraqi Ministry of Health when a photograph that placed him at a...
  • Army-Navy rivalry often a family affair

    Army-Navy rivalry often a family affair
    It happens, inevitably, at every sporting event. Katie Odierno Funk hears the national anthem and her eyes well up with tears. It's true whether she's watching baseball or basketball, but it hits her the hardest, without fail, at the Army-Navy football...
  • Iraqi refugee timeline

    Early 2003 The United States prepares to lead the invasion of Iraq. The United States and others position personnel and supplies in the region to respond to a possible refugee crisis. March 19, 2003 President George W. Bush announces the start of...
