Right, whoop-de-doodle, count your chickens. For now, we will occasionally publish reader letters in this section until we find them another home. They will not be edited, altered, or embellished in any way except to protect the author. And just how they’re picked, we’ll leave up to your clever little brain. Here are two, one received yesterday, and another we got a long time ago that, had we real offices with walls, we would have taped above the coffeemaker.

That’s right, the U.S. government fucks up and you blame it all on the U.K. government. Way to go there, buddy.
Are you insinuating that the U.S. government is so stupid that it will do whatever the U.K. government suggests? Does the U.S. not have its own intelligence organisations?
I’m surprised they haven’t planted WOMD to Iraq to save face, but since they haven’t, they’ve probably got reasons. And did you ever wonder why, with all of the technology available today, the CIA still cannot find Saddam? It’s crap, the CIA will never find Saddam to make sure that money is continually pumped into their organisation(s).
The whole situation is pathetic. Don’t just take it out on the U.K. government. How will the U.S. government ever learn if you don’t criticize them and try to make sure they don’t make the same mistakes again? Oh wait, it will never learn because U.S. citizens back it blindly.
I can understand having pride in your country (even if it is blind pride), but blaming another country for a war that your leader wanted to start sooner (which Tony Blair stopped him from doing, by the way), is pathetic and wrong.
Just my 2c.

As a boy my father would take me to visit his froend in a little village which had its own fire and police and very small winding streets bordered by little on story houses facing the streets but each house backed to the sound and was at least four stoies reaching down to the shore in the rear and facing the sound. Is this village still there3? whats its name? Location..oh yes, it had its own mayor.
