France's UN office inundated with fan mail

If you haven't already sent 'em a thank-you, please do so now...it makes a difference!







E-Mail Floods France's UN Office After Iraq Plea

Tue Feb 18, 4:38 PM

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - France's U.N. Mission was flooded with electronic

fan mail after Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin urged the Security Council

to "give peace a chance" in Iraq, French officials said Tuesday.

Some 5,000 e-mails -- overwhelmingly favorable and the vast majority from

Americans -- were logged Friday, the day de Villepin delivered a speech

stressing that use of force was not justified at this time against Baghdad, the

officials said.

Another 12,000 messages were received over the weekend, the officials said.

While President Bush has warned that time was running out for Baghdad to

dispose of any weapons of mass destruction, de Villepin drew a rare burst of

applause from the Security Council gallery when he said U.N. inspections were

showing results and force was not yet justified.

"What is at stake here is war and peace and our common responsibility," de

Villepin said. "We are willing to try to give peace a chance."

The responses included:

-- "I have watched France's foreign minister's speech yesterday at the U.N.

Security Council and was very proud of France's position which was based on

principles," wrote a man from Irvine, California.

-- "Merci merci merci. Thank you thank you. Remain firm. Continue to oppose

the Bush administration. PLEASE!" a Los Angeles woman wrote. The letters

were shown to Reuters on condition their authors would not be identified.

-- "THANK YOU for your courage and conscience in opposing the war criminals

of Washington. Your hard work will make all of us safer in the long run. Hold fast

just a little longer," wrote a man from Elora, Tennessee.

-- "Please stand strong and do not allow the United Nations to be used as a

puppet for my so-called government," wrote a Chicago, Illinois, man.
