Let Saddam and Bush duke it out

Jolene Tapia

Dear Editor,

I’m writing this because I feel that the Americans are fighting to keep our nation alive. I feel that if we had gotten him before this war has started, then we wouldn’t be back in this mess again. My heart goes out to all the men and women who are thousands of miles away from family and friends trying to protect our nation.

I was watching the news yesterday and they showed some very upsetting pictures of women, children and old people lying in the streets of Iraq, dead and children starving. Saddam is killing his own people, so why do we let him get away with it?

My solution is: why not get a wrestling ring and put it in Iraq. In one corner, put Saddam, and in the other, put Bush. Then let all the nations, like China, Russia, Turkey, Germany, etc., watch live on national television across all the nations and let them box it out.
