Letter from France

by Susan Forrest Friday, Apr. 18, 2003 at 5:15 AM

a letter from a friend in France

Dear Susan,
I'm so sorry I haven't written to you sooner in that difficult period of war... It's not because I haven't read your mails, but because I don't know what to say!.
Every country here in Europe is fighting against this war, even England, Spain and Italy, there are demonstrations each week, not with thousands of people but with millions of people and I guess you won't hear of that in USA...

M is in Spain, in Barcelelona, with M and C, and they joined the anti-war demonstration last Saturday, there were more than 300 000 people in the streets...Much more than in Paris only because Spain support USA and France not...

I can imagine easily what is your life in USA nowadays and I'm so terrified thinking of what you have to bear...
You must be strong, you and your friends, and it's probably difficult everywhere, every time...

Now, we know one thing: if we disagree with Bush it's because we are terrorists and USA may attack France when they want! USA is the leader of the world and everybody must accept this tyranny or Bush will send us bombs and GI's until we will suck his balls!
I can tell you no one in Europe can accept such ultimatum (except England...) and no one will accept it in Iraq.

When we see the TV here, there are very few people in Iraq demonstrating in favor of the Anglo-US armies, one or two hundred people in Baghdad among 6 millions! And among those who are demonstrating, many are against Saddam Hussein and USA!
Until tonight, massive destruction weapons are only in the hands of US soldiers, none were found in Iraq and none can be found anywhere else than in US. And even if only one massive destruction weapon was discovered in Iraq, they have not used it, but US Army did! It's the terrible difference!

One thing more: the US government says that France is against this war because French people support Saddam Hussein. It's a completely stupid thing, something coming out of a Bush mind, that is to say from nothingness... We hate Saddam Hussein from a long time, even when he was the US ally in the war against Iran. But now we hate Saddam Hussein and George W Bush!

But we don't hate American people, so many are fighting against this awful war, and too many are lost in front of the brainwashing of US medias... We hope they will join us...soon...

I'm grateful to you Americans who are holding a French flag in the demonstrations in your dull country. You are brave, much more than your soldiers in Iraq.
It's always easy to follow Big Brother, it's much more dangerous to fight him! If you follow Big Brother, you can lose your life, because of a bullet, no more. If you fight against him, you can lose your life, your family lives, your friends lives, your sympathizers lives, your kids lives, because of torture, so much more!

Carry on you my American friends, I need you, and I will help you as much as I can, while you're helping me...

You know what? It's a hard time for you and me, perhaps more for you than for me.

If Bush carries on, everybody in this world will hate Americans. And I don't want that. Tell your friends, tell everybody that there his a hate against Bush everywhere in the world and it's not a hate against Americans. Get rid of that stupid monkey, and everything could be sensible... You and me and all the others, all those who never could say anything, could talk, talk about democracy, and create democracy, far from their stupid bombs, far from their stupid world, monkey planet, alien world, mental defective Bush world...

He is as dangerous as Hitler, Staline, Ben Laden or Saddam Hussein.

In France, we only have Le Pen, and when there is a threat, we vote for any stupid democrat, it's much more than a mental defective president! It is democracy, we have Chirac, but not Big Brother... We are not happy but we are free. Much more than you my old friends. It's not TV and medias who chose our president but votes, and the president is the one who have the majority... Not as in USA...

I'm not saying this for you, of course! You know all what I said. But your neighbors...

Dear Susan, I send you all my strength to help you in your fight . May be it's not enough... Not enough tonight, but enough tomorrow... Don't give up, we'll help you. And you'll help us, we don't want to give up too !

Friendly kisses
