Anne Lambert's letter (Jan. 18), "Don't vote for Bush in 2004," was a sparkling example of liberal disconnection with reality. She claims that Americans are "gazing apathetically" while President Bush wages an "unjustified" war.

The Americans I see are anything but apathetic. They're glued to the news, agonizing over the well-being of our young men and women deploying to the Gulf, flying the flag everywhere and wondering aloud and often what's taking so long to begin freeing the Iraqi people.

They wince at the footage of the gassed Kurdish babies lying in the streets and fear that Hussein will gleefully unleash his arsenal on Israeli and American children if given a chance. Many Americans remember Hitler and are certain that this war is anything but "unjustified."

The liberal left needs to recognize that in the eyes of most Americans, eliminating the Iraqi tyrant is not just the Republican thing to do, it's the right thing to do.
