Tell me the US made up all of this [Archives:2003/631/Letters to the Editor]

I would like to tell your columnist Hassan Al-Haifi that I happen to be one of those Americans that were “fooled.” It is strange how I could be so naive.
I just watched hundreds of Iraqis jumping up and down on a statue of Saddam in celebration. But of course, this is probably only American soldiers dressed in Iraqi civilian clothing or maybe there are American soldiers with guns to these people's backs, right?
How can you say that our soldiers have killed more Iraq citizens than Saddam? I do not remember ever reading about the United States using chemical weapons on the Kurds. Then again, that was probably us, not Chemical Ali.
I challenge you to try and question some Iraq citizens about how they feel now. Then let us know if you still feel the same.
I read the statement at the bottom that letters can be modified (corrected, adjusted, shortened,…) before being published. In America, we could bring trouble to someone alters our statement.
