Thank you, President Bush

I quoted below, part of Paulo Coelho's letter to George Bush back in 2003, during the war agianst Iraq!!

Thank you for having achieved something that very few have so far managed to do in this century: the bringing together of millions of people on all continents to fight for the same idea, even though that idea is opposed to yours.

Thank you for making us feel once more that though our words may not be heard, they are at least spoken – this will make us stronger in the future.

Thank you for ignoring us, for marginalizing all those who oppose your decision,because the future of the Earth belongs to the excluded.

Thank you, because,without you, we would not have realized our own ability to mobilize. It may serve no purpose this time, but it will doubtless be useful later on. Now that there seems no way of silencing the drums of war, I would like to say, as an ancient European king said to an invader: ‘May your morning be a beautiful one,may the sun shine on your soldiers’ armour, for in the afternoon, I will defeat you.’

Thank you for allowing us – an army of anonymous people filling the streets in an attempt to stop a process that is already underway – to know what it feels like to be powerless and to learn to grapple with that feeling and transform it. So, enjoy your morning and whatever glory it may yet bring you.

Thank you for not listening to us and not taking us seriously, but know that we are listening to you and that we will not forget your words.

Thank you, great leader George W. Bush.
Thank you very much.

First let me clearly say that I think what is happening in Lebanon is very sad and I hope it stops soon.
I have to say though that, the situation in Lebanon is extremely complicated because there are a lot of parties involved in it. Therefore, I dont think it is fair to blame Bush for it. On the other hand, I believe the disaster in Iraq is Bush's fault and him alone.
Finally, let me say that I wish from the bottom of my heart to see lasting peace in Lebanon.

the situtaion is complicated but what is so simple & needs none of the great countries' and world's political, artificial and leadership table talks and meetings; is the brutal attack!! this has to stop then comes the blaming game..
