We are not the bad guy


CNHI News Service

Monday, April 15, 2013 — This letter is for staff writer Ian Faulkner. You do not seem to think the threat from North Korea is serious. Read your history of war. I’m glad that our country takes it serious.

You said that flying a stealth bomber over North Korea is being a bully and a threat. This makes perfect sense to me. We and other countries are being threatened.

I do not believe any normal person would want us or any country to use nuclear technology on anyone. Get real man, we are not the one making the threat. Do you not watch the news? Watch a little more before you make another statement.

Kim Jong-un is not racial, but is an unstable person to me, when I see how he acts on news programs.

To even suggest that Kim-Jong-un and Barack Obama get into an arena with swords is the most childish thing I have ever heard come out of a grown man’s mouth.

I have seen the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. I saw the oil that still comes to the surface since Dec. 7, 1941. I have seen the wall of names of people who died — one father and both his sons. It brings such a sadness of heart to stand there where so many were slain.

Our country or our people are not perfect. Do not make us the bad guy.
