Letter: Blame Bush-Cheney wars, not Obama

The Eagle-Tribune

---- — To the editor:

I am writing in response to all the criticism of President Obama, laying all the blame on him for conditions in the United States today.

I would like to take these critics back to 2001 and the Cheney-Bush wars they began in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

These two were responsible for needless war and for the American troops killed, as well as the horribly maimed, fatherless children and families destroyed.

Neither one of them served in combat overseas but made sure young Americans had to. Those three wars cost 224,000 to 258,000 human lives directly, plus at least $l trillion in interest payments coming due and many billions more in expenses that can't be counted.

People who support Romney the draft evader better wake up and give the president their support.
