I would like to thank Congressman Rick Larsen for his thoughtful approach to the situation with Iraq. With way too many hawks and doves in Congress, we need more owls like Larsen. Larsen understands the threat Saddam Hussein poses to the region, but believes we must use diplomacy and international law before proceeding with force.
Larsen is asking the tough questions that will allow the United States to gain allies around the globe as we seek to rid this dictator of his weapons of mass destruction. In doing so, Larsen has our citizens’ security in his top interest. Thanks to Congressman Rick Larsen for not politicizing Iraq or jumping on the respective hawk and dove bandwagons. There is another alternative, and Larsen is it.
