Dear editor, Re: Ken Rumley's letter Aug 2. "`Cowboy' Harper part of Bush's gang". Our war heroes, Mr. Rumley, were peacemakers and then peacekeepers. Canadians killed and were killed. They made the kind of sacrifice that only terrorists and "Uncle Adolf" understood. We would all be marching to the beat of a Nazi drum if they had your attitude. They didn't leave the dirty work for others, and then came in with cleanup crews. You can't negotiate with people who decapitate innocents with pocket knives, pull out women's fingernails for wearing polish, rape five-year-old girls and instigate the extermination of a democratic people. Need I go on? Or are you still skipping through that field of daisies? You're right, there are other ways of desecrating the memories of our war heroes by not having the stomach to do the right thing. They led by example and stepped up to the plate. How does that saying go? "Evil triumphs when good men do nothing". Mr. Harper is one of the best. Peace has to be made, before it can be kept, so saddle up Mr. Rumley or do you prefer that rocking horse. Dawn Schertzl, Norval
