STOP WAR [link]
Letter to the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper or Satan from Hell, Bush's Asshole [link]
here email@example.com:"Dear Prime Minister Stephen Harper;
How are you doing?
It seems to me that you must be having difficulty sleeping at night as you are not responding to any local (Canadian) or international calls for you to consider a ceasefire in this situation regarding Israel and Lebanon. You have insisted on calling Israel's reaction "measured". Well, perhaps it was when we have heard evidence that the attack has been 2 years in the planning.
Are you aware that support for you has dropped dramatically as a result of your actions regarding these hostilities? Actually you must be aware that you were elected by only a slim margin in any case. Many people including myself are calling on our MP's for a vote of non-confidence against you and would like to see you ousted from the House of Parliament as soon as possible. You have not proven to be an adequate leader and you are certainly doing your best to severely taint Canada's reputation as a peaceable country - a peacemaker and a peacekeeper. What's up with that? You did not campaign on the basis of being a warmonger or I'm sure even fewer people would have voted for you.
Now please listen to older and more experienced people who know better than you do, that war of any kind is no solution for any problem. You campaigned as a Christian. You should be well aware of the New Testament. War is not condoned there for any reason. The Old Testament is not for Christians. Listen to your own conscience and recommend a ceasefire.
Likewise, you should be recommending that all Canadians be removed from Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran. There is no need or reason for Canada to be involved in these conflicts. Not only can we not afford it, it is not our country's mandate to make war.
It makes me feel great shame and anger to know that Canada is no longer a peaceful country and that we are now risking the same kind of attack that we are perpetrating on the countries we engage with. It's awful to contemplate the horrors that are being perpetrated in Canada's name. Please listen carefully, empathise and stop the violence NOW!
And the bogus reply showing that they didn't even read my letter:
"Dear Ms. Janzen:
On behalf of the Right Honourable Stephen Harper, I would like to acknowledge receipt of your correspondence regarding Canada's mission in Afghanistan. Please be assured that your comments have been carefully noted.
It is in Canada's national interest to see Afghanistan become a free, democratic and peaceful country. An unstable Afghanistan represents a serious threat to Canada and the world. Canada has assumed an international leadership role by serving in the United Nations mandated, but Canadian led, Afghan security mission.
Canada has a tradition of stepping up to the plate and providing leadership on global issues. The Prime Minister is proud of the Canadian Forces personnel who have put themselves on the line to defend our national interests and to help Afghanis rebuild their country. They are standing up for core Canadian values and achieving important victories for the people of Afghanistan.
As you may know, the House of Commons already voted to extend the Canadian military mission in Afghanistan until February 2009. A copy of the Prime Minister's speech delivered prior to this vote is available online at [link]

Further, the government shares the desire of the vast majority of Canadians to see a prompt resolution to the situation in Lebanon as well as the development of long-term peace and stability in the region.
We remain committed to working with the international community to develop a strong position that can lead to a durable and lasting peace. As you may be aware, we have already played an important role in this regard by helping to craft the unanimous declaration by G8 leaders concerning the crisis in Lebanon at the recent G8 summit in Russia.
However, we are not neutral towards terrorist groups or towards the right of Israel to defend itself. Hezbollah, which initiated the unprovoked aggression against the sovereign state of Israel, must be prevented from terrorizing the Israeli population at will. Only then will a cease-fire become sustainable.
Additionally, please note that the Government of Canada will continue to actively contribute to humanitarian efforts in the region, beginning with the safety of Canadians and with reconstruction efforts when there is a resolution to this conflict.
You can learn more about Canada's foreign policy and our efforts to help restore peace in the region, by visiting the website of Foreign Affairs Canada, at [link]

I also wrote to President Bush of the USA firstname.lastname@example.org: "Dear President Bush and Members of Congress;
How are you doing today?
You must absolutely be empathic toward all nations in this time of ridiculous wars and realise that human lives are always more important than profits of any kind for yourselves or any other company.
You must put a stop to the hostilities in Israel and Lebanon immediately.
You must call a stop to all violence in Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan immediately and call the troops back to the USA. It's a shame that the US has not listened to calls for this war to end. It's a shame that the president informed the public 3 years ago that the war was over and yet it still continues. It's even worse that the president has coerced other nations into doing the dirty work of the US and has taken away the dignity, reputation and peace of nations such as Canada as a result of its selfish and nonsensical actions in the Middle East.
Please stop before the situation becomes worse. Let the people of those countries deal with their own problems.
And I received this even less interested reply:
"On behalf of President Bush, thank you for your correspondence.
We appreciate hearing your views and welcome your suggestions.
The President is committed to continuing our economic progress,
defending our freedom, and upholding our Nation's deepest values.
Due to the large volume of e-mail received, the White House
cannot respond to every message. Please visit the White House
website for the most up-to-date information on Presidential
initiatives, current events, and topics of interest to you.
In order to better receive comments from the public, a new system
has been implemented. In the future please send your comments to
Thank you again for taking the time to write."
Nonetheless I encourage all to write to these guys or whatever your country's leaders and tell them your opinion on whatever is going on in the world today. After all you are paying their salaries with your taxes and should have a say in what they do with the money you give them for running the country!
On a related note, both the US and Canada recently passed draconian laws taking away nearly all rights and freedoms even from law-abiding citizens in the name of protecting us from terrorists. It's rumoured that Canada's law is even stricter that the US one. In any case I found this great article at DaOnlyOverlord's site
. It states that judges have realised that congress has overstepped its bounds in making laws that attempt to surpass the rights laid down in the American Constitution! Let's hope that the courts win on this one. Someone's gotta keep those idiotic politicians in check. Now what about Canada!!!????
Keep up the good fight!!!
But stop all wars!
Please wait for my friends' icons to load and then look at their galleries too! They are worth it!
