Dear Editor:
For Mr Howse, in his editorial {"The war for the street" March 26}, to call Iraqis, defending their country against foreign invaders, as "thugs" defies credibility. These people are not fighting for the abhorent dictator, Saddam Hussein. They are defending their land against a blatant aggression, committed in defiance of international law. Perhaps Mr. Howse should reflect on Winston Churchill's dictum stating : " It is the right and duty of every man to kill and die in defence of the land he lives on."
Yours sincerely
Ismail Zayid,MD.
