Dear list Sent to Guardian letters and to Ian Black and Helena Smith today. To write to Guardian journalists directly, simply type email@example.com Best wishes Eric Dear Sir/Madam: Ian Black and Helena Smith ('Bush threatens attack over "lies", November 21) describe as 'familiar stonewalling' Iraqi expressions of concern over declaring peaceful industries and over their ability to meet the December 8 deadline for a full declaration of materials relevant to Security Council Resolution 1441. Yet there is good reason to believe that the US has managed to secure a resolution worded the way it is to make it impossible for Iraq to comply and hence to give it an excuse to launch the war it wants. The resolution requires Iraq to declare not only prohibited programmes, but also any related items and other chemical, biological and nuclear programmes 'which it claims are for purposes not related to weapon production or material'.
