I am a French reader from the little town of Crest, Drome dept, France and I want to comment on the letter sent to you saying that “America is working to diminish its own influence by enhancing the influence of every person on earth.”
I must point the writer’s honesty when you write “on earth….”,
Yes, he is honest because the 15,000 dead Iraqis (civilians and military) are not anymore “on earth”.
I am not sure other readers are as cynical as you are.
