Quote:An open letter to George W Bush
The recently released US intelligence report on Iran is a sign of the real America rising to reaffirm that it is a principled, values-based, free and democratic country

Dear Mr President,....

It's just a short period before the spirit of Christmas, and once again, you appear to be on the verge of making decisions that will impact my livelihood and the welfare of my family. The fact I have no way of making you accountable for those decisions is a problem for me, so it is perhaps only fair that I exercise my right to freedom and democracy to tell you what I think.

Let me cut to the chase. Show the rest of the world some respect and stop insulting our intelligence. Think carefully, very, very carefully before initiating another conflict which could potentially become, in your own words, World War III.

If you want to destroy yourself, your country and your people, that is your right. But you have no right, no right whatsoever, to inflict the consequences of your decisions on the rest of the world. We did not vote you in, and we are unable to vote you out, but we have to suffer the consequences of your folly.

The conclusion by your intelligence agencies on Iran's nuclear issue is a moment of truth. It is a sign of the real America rising, an America that was once known as a principled, values-based, free and democratic country. Although you have vigorously trashed those ideals, there are still many who cherish and abide by them.

When US intelligence reports are not doctored by your vice president nor influenced by Israeli disinformation campaigns, they tell the truth. Yet, you reject the outcome. How someone of your stature is capable of making, leave aside believing, any of the comments we see you uttering on TV is really beyond imagination.

The worldview from the White House can be radically different from elsewhere. In the Gulf, millions of low-income labourers are becoming poorer still due to the depreciating dollar. Worldwide, racial and religious tensions are spreading. Environmental disasters loom. Economies are wobbly. Viral pandemics are a constant threat. With only a year left before you exit, stage left, do you really want to launch another wider war?

Your track record is not good. Many of us still remember that moment before you first became president when, in a TV interview, you were unable to name the president of Pakistan. Your first cabinet was supposed to include a foreign-policy "dream team". Several of them have since resigned or been fired in disgrace.

You, too, have much explaining to do over Iraq - where are those weapons of mass destruction you so brazenly talked about? Saddam Hussein insisted that he did not have any. He turned out to be telling the truth. UN inspectors spent weeks checking out the sites fingered by US/Israeli intelligence agencies, and found nothing. Yet, you and your "dream team" insisted that he was concealing them and that finding them after an invasion would be a 'slam dunk".

So who was wrong? Instead of making an apology, you changed your story. How can you sleep peacefully at night knowing that hundreds of thousands of people have died as a result of those lies?

I, too, believe in the same God you do, and I know one thing for sure - God has no love for liars and killers.

Now you are at it again, this time wanting the Iranians to prove their innocence. My understanding of a fair and rational judicial system in a free democracy is that it is up to the prosecutors to prove the guilt of the accused. At the moment, your own investigators say they have no evidence. Yet, you want the accused to "come clean". Come clean about what?

The good news is that there are still men and women of honour left in your country. You were clearly humiliated by this report, but far from humbled. But I am confident that honour and goodness will triumph over evil.

Should you acquiesce or otherwise authorise an attack on Iran, there is a good chance that your own generals may refuse to follow your orders. The military, too, is an institution of honour, and honourable generals know that behind all their Star-Wars hardware, toys and gizmos and gadgetry, human lives are at stake. It is very likely that having been sent once to do your bidding on false pretexts, they will not allow themselves to be used again.

Call it a 21st century Mutiny on the Bounty. But the US military, if it remains an honourable institution with the wider interests of the American people and the world at heart, will not execute orders they know to be wrong, immoral and unethical. In this case, disobedience and insubordination would really be democracy at its best.

Take a good look around you. Your ability to shape the world is fading rapidly. If an election was to be held right now, you would lose, and lose badly. The people of Australia have voted out your deputy sheriff. In the Internet era, it is becoming difficult to fool all the people all the time. Real democracy is on the march. You were quick to gloat when the Venezuelan public rejected President Hugo Chavez' bid to become president for life. Today, the rest of the world is gloating that your own investigators have turned on you. At least a humbled Chavez acknowledged the results. You don't seem to care. Who's the better Christian?

I certainly hope you do not seek to become president for life. Please just stick to the problems you already have on hand in the little time you have left. You still need to deliver on that long-promised Palestinian state - an actual state, not just more talk about creating one. The conflict of Iraq is far from over, believe me. The people of Iraq will not accept a long-term US presence there. If, on top of all this, you take on Iran, you will lose. Even as millions more lose their lives and livelihoods.

Worry about your place in history and the fraying American empire. Show some of that compassion and repentance Christianity preaches, especially with the spirit of Christmas coming up. Have mercy on the rest of the world. It's the least you can do.

Think, Mr President, think really, really carefully.

SINCERELY,

Imtiaz Muqbil

The man must be kidding. "Think, Mr President". What with?
Just another rant by an ill-informed, agenda driven liar. Why give such nonsense any visability?

That reminded me of a country swing band from my college days called "Chuck Wagon and the Wheels" (Their big hit was "Disco Sucks") that had a song called "Let's use the A-RABS to test the Neutron Bomb" ... gotta check to see if I still have it on vinyl.

Let's use the A-RABS to test the Neutron Bomb ...
It won't take very long ...
Who'll miss them when they're gone?

Great dance music!! Good times!!

But some bad memories from the mechanical bull ... S4
Whatever - like anyone is going to, especially Bush, is going to bother to read such fecal material. I just skimmed thorugh most of it myself before my eyes almost fell out from the absolute void of reason in it. Sort like the suck in space.
More offended Muslims! Now the Turks want the Italians to do away with their cross in Milan! Like the Italians could care less or anything,off with it Vincenzo!

Are you actively pushing for the killing of a certain individual "Q"? This could get you a visit from a member of the Secret Service, don't you know? At the very least, your history would be minutely scrutenized.

Do you really want that? Remember, the US and Germany share certain intelligence. I hope you are not wanted by the German authorities for your past history in DDR. If you suddenly stop posting here, I will have to assume the worst. Shock

Yak,

Ya beat me to it. Anyway,I don't think Quad realizes we don't want to be popular with these nihilists,if I wanted approval from Europe or Islam I'd be a different guy.

I'm scared shitless... No wonder your secret service doesn't catch any terrorists, let alone Bin Laden, if they rather go after shirts.
He's right,too,some of them wear black kafiyas!

I also believed this part,
..."It is a sign of the real America rising, an America that was once known as a principled, values-based, free and democratic country. Although you have vigorously trashed those ideals, there are still many who cherish and abide by them."...
was a plain lie.

I thank Imtiaz Muqbil for his heart-felt "Open Letter to George W Bush (Soul Searching, 9 Dec 2007)

President Bush is an abomination and at last the American people are realising it. There is an evil that has run the American government for a long time and George W. Bush serves this evil. When he goes, a militaristic America goes with him.
George W. Bush will be viewed as the darkness before the dawn.
An America of true goodwill is forthcoming.
America owes the world an apology and you shall have it.
ONE AMERICAN
------------
Letter has surprise ending

I read the letter from Imtiaz Muqbil in total agreement until I reached the last sentence: "Think, Mr President, think really, really carefully."
At that point I broke down in laughter.
Come on, Brother Imtiaz.
Can you really refer to President Bush and use the word "think" in the same sentence?

I might have been wrong.
