Write a Letter to the Editor or an on-line comment about the Iraq debacle
Our voices are still desperately needed.With the troops coming home from Iraq, we should reflect on the results of this devastating invasion. The people of Iraq are actually worse off today than they were under Saddam Hussein. We need to flood the media with our comments and our recommendations for lessons learnt from this illegal war. For more talking points please read our Iraq Debacle Statement.

Letter to the Editor
The Letter to the Editor Section is one of the most widely read sections of the newspaper and can reach a large audience. It allows community members to comment on the way issues are being addressed in the media and to influence the topics the local paper may choose to cover. Elected officials often monitor this section of the newspaper and take notice of constituents' opinions.
We've made it easy for you to contact your local newspaper with your views, but editors want to hear from you in your own words.
