Letters to the Editor
Sir, In your Editorial, "Don't send Indian troops to Iraq" ( July 4 ), you have accurately reflected the view of the people of India on the issue. Iraq is now an occupied land. Any move to send troops to an occupied land is illegal. One should not respond to the SOS from the Anglo-U.S. invaders. Our troops are not meant to be the relief for invaders in Iraq and should not be exposed to the disastrous effects of depleted uranium weapons that were used by invaders.
Asked whether the Government was inclined to send troops, L.K. Advani said that it was "in India's interest to have a presence in that region. It will be good for us and good for Iraq". Now we, the poor voters of this largest democracy with the best Army in the world, know the U.S. is concerned about us and planning and doing things for the welfare of our country.
Despite all efforts, it is clear that the Government is inclined and will definitely send troops unless the President intervenes immediately. The people should at once send an SOT (save our troops) message to the President.
