This completely disgusts me ("We're mad as hell," The Daily Astorian, Sept. 6). This war was started under false pretenses. Lies, lies, and more lies about weapons of mass destruction and terrorists with connections to Osama.

The only terrorists we should have been at war with are those who are truly in connection with Osama. Our soldiers signed up knowing they may have to protect this country from terrorists, they did not sign up to fight in a war based on the lies of our current administration.

We need to bring these soldiers home, and allow the Iraqi people to rebuild their country. I thank God for Cindy Sheehan, MoveOn.org, Media Matters for America and Michael Moore. They are out there telling truths that we need to hear. The mainstream media has been supporting the lies told by this administration, and the alternate voices out there are necessary in this time of faux news.
