The letter:
Today, Wednesday, an emergency session of the Security Council has been
called to discuss the situation in Iraq.
I am American. I am ashamed of what my country is doing... We have a rogue
government, not elected, but appointed, which has determined to "rule" the
world. Its misuse of power is blatant and frankly very un-American. I urge
you... beseech you to please vote for peace and invoke resolution 377. This
rogue regime cannot survive in the stark light of truth. Please shine it!
Please stand for all the human souls who want to believe in the triumph of
good over evil...for surely this war being waged in Iraq is not "good".
Hussein can be removed by the force of truth if the weight of the United
Nations is applied to enforce the disarmament and exposes his crimes in the
International Criminal Court. I am ashamed that we too may be guilty of
Crimes Against Humanity. Please don't let it continue without your vote of
condemnation.
Thank you,

The Press Release:

UN Security Council Sets Emergency Debate on Iraq
Tue March 25, 2003 03:24 PM ET By Irwin Arieff

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The U.N. Security Council agreed on Tuesday to
hold an emergency debate on Iraq but Arab envoys were undecided whether to
push a resolution demanding an immediate end to the U.S.-led war.

The debate was set for Wednesday at 3 p.m. and council diplomats said all 191
U.N. members would be invited to speak rather than just the council's 15
member-nations.

Arab diplomats said they feared a resolution calling for an immediate
withdrawal of foreign forces from Iraq could be defeated and thereby serve to
legitimize the U.S.-British invasion after the fact.

Syrian U.N. Ambassador Mikhail Wehbe, who on Monday said the Arab group at
the United Nations intended to seek adoption of a resolution demanding an end
to the U.S.-led invasion, said on Tuesday that no decision had yet been made
on a resolution.

"No, not yet," Wehbe said when asked whether Arab envoys had decided to press
for a resolution.

He said the emergency council debate would give U.N. members a chance "to
raise their voices."

"After that, we will see what we can do in the light of the discussions,"
Wehbe said.

Another Arab envoy, speaking on condition of anonymity, said, "We are holding
off on putting forward a draft resolution. We must first see what is
possible."

The Arab group of 22 countries formally requested an urgent Security Council
debate on Monday evening after Arab foreign ministers meeting in Cairo
adopted a declaration demanding an immediate end to the Iraq war and the
withdrawal of all foreign forces.

The group's request was delivered to the council by Iraqi U.N. ambassador
Mohammed Aldouri, this month's Arab group president.

The U.N. group of 166 non-aligned nations, currently led by Malaysia, also
backed an emergency session, and routine council approval of the request had
been widely expected.

But a resolution demanding an end to the U.S.-led attack on Iraq would appear
to have no chance of approval. Both the United States and Britain have veto
power in the council.

In addition, six of the council's 15 members refused to take sides earlier
this month when the United States and Britain pushed for a resolution giving
Iraq an ultimatum to quickly show its commitment to disarmament or face war.

***************************************************************************
If the vote doesn't pass in the Security Council the General Assembly will be
able to pass it by a very large majority, which is what happened in 1956 when
France and England had gone to "war" with Egypt over the Suez Canal. After
the General Assembly voted they pulled out within a matter of two weeks. The
Bush Admin does not want this vote to happen and has threatened countries
with various "punnishments".

as bush said (english)
26 Mar 2003
before he even bothered with the charade of going to the U.N. he was going to conquer iraq with or without U.N. approval

and that is just what he is doing

all 377 will do is embarrass the fuhrer but it will not stop the war

the war is not about 'disarming iraq' which is the propaganda line of the white house, but let's get real

they aren't spending 80 billion because they are mother theresa you know. its about oil, and that 80 billion is called an investment, and given that the oil wealth of iraq is measured in trillions, they will get a nice return on that investment

i really do hope that resolution 377 goes through just to expose to people once and for all the true nature of the bush regime (this will not stop the luftwaffe in the blitzkreig against the poles)
