Letters to the editor

I’m looking forward to serving you again

To the editor:

I am looking forward to going to Congress in January to serve the good people of New Hampshire’s 1st District.

For those who voted for me, thank you! For those who did not, please know that I will work on the issues that we all care about — jobs, education, energy, the environment, military and veteran issues, Social Security and Medicare, the debt, and all of the other matters we talked about through the campaign.

Although this is my third term, I went to Washington recently to attend the orientation, and I was pleased to hear the talk of compromise and cooperation. I am optimistic that we can solve the problems that we face. After all, we are Americans, and success is in our DNA!

Thank you for the honor of serving you again.

Carol Shea-Porter

Congresswoman-elect

Israel must

strike Iran first

To the editor:

According to various intelligence agencies Iran could have nuclear armaments ready for use against Israel by early 2013. The devices could be nuclear bombs, or more likely, nuclear warheads on missiles.

Diplomacy by the United States and Western countries has been given a chance, but it has not worked to deter Iran’s nuclear program, and Iran continues to develop its nuclear weapons.

Israel cannot allow Iran, and its irrational leadership, to have nuclear weapons because two or three nuclear detonations could wipe out Israel. Therefore, Israel must strike Iran with a multi-pronged attack, and it will only have one opportunity to neutralize the Iranian nuclear threat.

Israel’s military will have to be on general alert for an Iranian counter strike using conventional weapons. It is doubtful any of the other countries in the Middle East will come to Iran’s aid.
