Re the latest column by Tony Magliano, “Afghanistan: Longest U.S. War” (CR, Oct. 14), I’m sure many of your faithful Catholic readers object to the constant expressions of anti-American writings put forth by Magliano. His every thought seems to focus on the killing of Afghan civilians by American military. Our involvement in Afghanistan is a terrible cross for our nation, but well meant by an unselfish and democratic country. We need support by all Americans – not the ravings of Magliano against our military. Please find someone from Catholic News Service to express pride in the terribly difficult task at hand for our courageous troops abroad. We all despise war. But support our nation, its military and the actions thereof.
