I dont see that as inflamatory. He told the truth. If that doesent sit well with the subjects of the letter,,,, well sometimes the truth hurts.
You dont have to believe a train is coming. Itll run over you anyway.
I love all these comments about "too over the top" or "too strong" or "too accusatory"
Give me a break.
What is over the top?
Armed air marshals on aircraft after 3,000+ are killed?
Water boarding known terrorists to prevent further atrocities to innocents?
Keeping ones mouth shut while your neighbors are taken to concentration camps?
Diplomacy is just another word for those who couch & disguise the truth.
When the light of truth is shined on the liars, they scamper like rats.

I agree with the author, but the letter is nothing more than a bunch of emotional attacks and doesn't provide any evidence to back it up. Liars? Dishonest? Based on what? Give some examples. This letter will do nothing to change anyone's beliefs or behavior. This is the sort of emotional venting and attack that we condemn liberal anti-gunners for.
