Sexy actress Jessica Alba is desperately worried about the fate of her uncle who is serving in the American army in Iraq.

The HONEY star says her relative NICK STANISCI has been in the war-torn nation since January (04) and the entire family fears they will hear the news he is dead every day.

Alba laments, "He has three children who are right now in their most formative years - 19, 16 and 15 years old - and at any moment he could be no more.

"We don't know what kind of food he's getting to eat, if he's wearing the same clothes every day and taking a shower once a week, or sleeping with his machine gun.

"I just don't have a great feeling about what we're doing in Iraq. I don't know why we're there. Didn't we just give the power back over there? Why are we still there?"

Even though Alba is disapproves of US President George W Bush's actions, she is still unsure of whether to vote against him in the upcoming November (04) presidential elections.

She adds, "I don't want to upset my family. My family believes the opposite of what I believe. They're all Republicans."
