LETTERS: The right to eliminate any terrorist

Never Nancy (Pelosi) the leader (in name only) of the U.S. House of Representatives has proved once again that she should be brought before some judgmental group to prove why she should not be expelled from Congress for her acts of disaffection against the United States.

Her recent comments in opposition to the commander-in-chief’s conduct of the war border on treason in her attempt to sabotage President Trump’s conduct of the war against terrorists. There are agencies of the government that can open discussion with the president on his conduct of any war, but when the die is cast and we are at war, the president needs to have absolute authority in the conduct of the war without interference or second guessing by those in lesser authority.

In other words, the chain of command must be preserved and unbroken or else there is only chaos that follows.

Pelosi and others who have condemned the actions of the president in bringing down a noted enemy combatant have committed one or more of the following offenses: treason, sedition, disaffection or subversive activities within the ranks of the military and among civilian employees. These are all offenses which cause a distraction to our war effort.

President Trump should be praised for bringing the war to the enemy and one of its top-most leaders. They need to know that they cannot hide, that we will find and destroy them.

Furthermore, our nation needs to advise the world that we will not initiate any war, any where, but if our people or our interests are attacked, we will respond. Also, we reserve the right to eliminate any terrorist wherever he (she) exists in the world without question.
