Iraq Fighting

September 15, 1996

Whose side are we on?

According to The Times, there are two kinds of Kurds in northern Iraq (Sept. 6). One, loyal to Iraq and the other, loyal to Iran. The second group has been receiving aid from Iran. The Iraqi loyalists asked Saddam Hussein for help to prevent a takeover by the Iran faction. He helped. We cut off that help. Does that mean we are now good friends with Iran? For one, I am not, nor are most Americans.

* People in the armed services who are at risk in the Middle East should receive lifetime gasoline discounts from the oil companies whose interests our forces are serving there.

* "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." Hence we are now allied with Iran.

* George Bush and the world took on Saddam and beat him. President Clinton took on Saddam and the world and tweaked them.
