Regarding "Don't abandon Iraq war" (Reader Forum, Sept. 14):
Let's go back to the other bad war we got into:
Americans calling for a withdrawal of troops. Withdrawal of troops would render the last four years of combat a complete waste of time.
Withdrawing the soldiers would leave those who died for a cause that we chose not to finish.
The many news stories of soldiers being killed widely unreported facts of the progress being made.
"General Betray Us" telling us about his strategy to produce progress like his cousin Don't Lie to Us Westmoreland.
So don't forget that war and this war was led by two presidents from Texas who never fought a war but were advised by the best men they chose to serve them.
