YOUR article "America losing its grip on Mid-East" (18 January) because of so-called "failures" on some of its policies takes a limited view of what "grip" really signifies. God forbid the day when the few powerful democracies on this planet bow to pressures from the entire Muslim world plus Russia and China and ease up on Saddam Hussein. Let us not live to regret the day that the likes of Saddam Hussein have free rein with nuclear, chemical and biological weapons of destruction and use them in hatred and anger against anyone they please. Let the Muslim/Arab countries plus Russia, China and France carry on their intrigues, summits and back-patting; we should be pleased that the US and the UK are ready to step in and stop Saddam.
