To the Editor:

I was intrigued by your article “Organizer of anti-war petition told to go live in Iraq.” Dr. Naser certainly has every right to begin such a petition or organize such a rally, but from a strategic point of view he is failing miserably. Americans for the most part in the early days of a conflict or this conflict in particular will be very much behind the flag and the troops representing us. If the war continues to linger on into months instead of weeks, then there will be growing momentum in the anti-war movement. Having said that, Dr. Naser must remember that the same right that allows him to voice his dissent also allows others at our university to call him an absent minded professor. It seems that anti-war protesters are very sensitive when they get criticized also.

Sincerely,

Anthony Terranova, ’94
