"Mr. Runyon’s letter about apples and oranges is aptly titled (Letters, “Apples, Oranges and Muslims,” April 11-18). The NUVO cover story about the costs of war is an apple; Mr. Runyon introduces his orange by starting his second sentence with “Any war on terror ...”

The rest of his letter is obviously passionate and could even be called well-reasoned, except for the inconvenient fact that the war in IRAQ (as opposed to the invasion of Afghanistan) is not and has never been about terrorism, except in so far as terrorism has been a red herring and an excuse for the administration, and ironically a byproduct of the occupation of Iraq.

You can paint it red and call it an apple if you think it will fool anyone, but it’s still an orange.
