Dear Mr. Blair.

Extracts from this document...


75 Fern Road London SE4 8TY 3rd February 2003 The Prime Minister 10 Downing Street London SW10 8JS Dear Mr. Blair, This is my first ever letter to you and therefore I trust you will read its entire content even though the subject matter is one on which your office is presently inundated. What has staggered me as I watch and read the news on Iraq is your unrelenting drive to appease the US and President George Bush in particular, despite the overwhelming majority of British, US and world citizens being against a military attack. How do you find it possible to ignore the wise counsel of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Nelson Mandela, ex President Jimmy Carter, Kofi Anan and many other important personalities around the world? ...read more.

I believe that the likes of the US, Britain and Europe should be motivated to solving these threats rather than creating yet another avenue for instability, vengeance and hatred by attacking a nation that can barely afford to feed its own people. Therefore I appeal to your true conscience and hope that good sense will prevail for the sake of mankind, global peace and security. Yours faithfully, S.K. ...read more.
