BAGHDAD (AP) -- A truck bomb exploded across the street from Iraq's Foreign Ministry near the Green Zone Wednesday, knocking out concrete slabs and windows and leaving a mass of charred cars outside as a wave of explosions around Baghdad killed at least 95 people and wounded more than 400. A suicide truck bomber also targeted the Finance Ministry minutes earlier in the deadliest apparently coordinated attack in Iraq so far this year -- a major...

To the editor: The United Nations, for some peculiar reason, failed miserably in holding the Iraqi government to the requirements of 18 U.N. resolutions over a period of a dozen years in defiance of the nations of the world. Fortunately, our government stepped up to the plate to bring some sanity to the discussions in the United Nations in an effort to persuade them to act by outlining the crimes of this dangerous regime known as Iraq. Unfortunately, to little avail. The dithering, discussion and delay went on for months.

Saddam must be eliminated To the editor: I am very proud to see Americans exercising one of the many freedoms granted to them by the United States Constitution. What a great feeling it is to live in a country where you can protest without fear of being put into a torture or rape camp. The only problem with these protests is that some protesters are against sustaining the very freedoms which they are acting under. In a photograph on the cover of this morning's (March 21)

TRI-STATE-Area residents seem to favor an early withdrawal of troops from Iraq, according to an informal survey conducted Friday by The Herald-Mail. A majority of Tri-State-area residents surveyed said they agree with a bill passed by the U.S. House of Representatives Thursday that would bring home most combat troops from Iraq by April 1, 2008. "It's time to get out," said Diane Hoffman, 37, of Hagerstown. "We'll probably leave a mess, but we've had enough time to get it right and we haven't done that.

To the editor: After reading a recent letter, it is quite obvious that many of the people who supported President Bush going into Iraq on the basis of some sort of connection between Saddam Hussein and Islamic fundamentalists have no idea of what is actually going on in the Middle East. History supported by facts is showing us that the Bush administration flat out lied and abused its power. Aside from the issue that there was never a connection between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden himself viewed the Iraqi government under Saddam as being a socialist government.

I'm going to talk about winning or losing in Iraq as of right now at the beginning of 2007. What happened in 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006 cannot be changed nor reversed. History is not like a VCR tape that can be rewound and written over. We are in the "now" so let us think in terms of "now" and the future instead of dwelling on the past. The past, including the good, the bad and the ugly - and there were plenty of each - is truly past and unrecoverable. What is "winning" in Iraq from the American point of view in 2007?

Doesn't being wrong on Iraq tell you something? To the editor: Donald Currier postulates in his column that rehashing America's performance to date in Iraq will not achieve victory. Unfortunately, the dismal and deceitful record of the Bush Administration's missteps in this manufactured and manipulated fiasco is the prism in which we are compelled to view this "no win" Pandora's Box. Surge or no surge will not change the gruesome reality that the Bush administration has abdicated its moral and legal responsibility to pursue and punish the terrorists who attack our country.
