Horrified by the Connecticut killings

Dear Editor,

Everyone who learned of the killing of the 20 children and 6 teachers at a school in Newtown Connecticut, USA on Friday, December 14, will be horrified and saddened, including the families of the people in Afghanistan and Pakistan killed by US bombs, because no one can agree with the slaughter of the innocent.

What I cannot understand though is why the Americans (leaders of the free world) who are so good at finding imaginary WMD in Iraq, and finding Osama Bin Laden, and finding so many other terrorists cannot find their own home-grown terrorists, and how come these kinds of killings don’t happen in Cuba.

Anyway, my heartfelt sympathy goes out to the families of those killed; when I look at those beautiful little faces I think of my own grandchildren and great grands.
Yours faithfully,
W P George
