    As defense strategists at the Pentagon carry out their review of how to make roughly $400 billion in cuts over 10 years, and Congress considers the possibility of reductions twice as large as required by the supercommittee's failure to reach agreement,...
  • 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...

  • Nuclear threat keeps U.S. troops overseas

    Nobody wishes for peace more than a veteran. As someone who deployed to a combat zone and knows what it's like to endure deep pangs of family separation and be awoken at 3:30 a.m. because there's a large group outside your post who is trying to kill you,...
  • Nearing a decision on Iran

    Nearing a decision on Iran
    One of several casualties of the vitriolic name-calling between Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich is what to do about Iran. In interviews, Mr. Romney has spoken about tougher sanctions, but it's been difficult to consider...
  • Nuclear saber-rattling

    Nuclear saber-rattling
    The threat of an Israeli strike against Iran'snuclear facilities ratcheted up a notch last week when Israel'sdefense minister, Ehud Barak, issued new warnings that time was running out to stop Tehran's drive to build a bomb. If Israel waits much longer,...
  • Nuclear inspectors did have access in Iraq

    Larry Smith's letter regarding U.S. foreign policy ("Nuclear threat keeps U.S. troops overseas," Feb. 7) reflects, perhaps, a "wishful remembrance" in its stating that "if Saddam Hussein had allowed inspectors full access to Iraq, we never would have gone...
