[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] 20, New Road, Hailey, Oxon England OX29 9TZ 5th January,2003 01993 775080 Dear Sir, I was very encouraged to read your article entitled 'What This War Is Not About' by Rick Salutin. It is of the greatest importance if the drive to war is to be stopped that we understand the motive behind it. Certainly, your article clears away a great deal of confusion in dismissing most of the claimed 'excuses'. It seems to me that there are only two 'reasons' untouched, first the wish to control Iraqi oil, and second the wish to comply with Israel's wishes to control the Arab world. In looking at these alternatives, consider what support the 'war' party has. None, apart from Bush,whose administration is riddled with Zionist supporters, Blair, who is on record as complaining that Arafat did not accept Barak's completely inadequate offer at Camp David, and Sharon, himself. I suggest the motive for war is obvious and shameful.
