Clinton didn't start the war.

* The final sentence of Fr. Raymond Schroth's article "Clinton through other eyes" (NCR, Aug. 27) slurs Clinton by suggesting that if he had resigned, as he should have, according to Schroth, the war in Iraq would not have been fought. The war; however, is the result of Bush's deliberate policy; in no way at all is the war attributable to Clinton's admittedly shameful dalliances.

Why doesn't Schroth suggest that Bush resign, both for deceptively leading the nation into war and for inadequately (through Donald Rumsfeld) prosecuting the war that he insisted on fighting?
