Mr. George W. Bush, President
United States of America
Washington, D.C. 20500-0001

Subject : The U.S. cannot afford a fatal miscalculation

Reference: Your intention to replace Saddam Hussein

May the Peace of God be upon you, President Bush!

Without judging your stance regarding Saddam Hussein, I wish to express my concern to you regarding the possibility of a fatal miscalculation on the part of your advisors. I feel it to be my responsibilityto bring this danger to your attention. [Ezekiel 33: 7-9]

According to the BP Statistical Review [end of 2001], the U.S. held 3.5 % of the world oil reserves (WOR). If to that figurewe add the WOR of Kuwait, Mexico and Venezuela, the availability of which, can be greatly influenced by Washington - it brings that total to 26.6%.

Your advisors have determined to change the governmentof Iraq and, as the article in the Washington Post of September 15th clearly explains, those who are with the U.S. will partake of the Iraqi "oil spoils" and those who are not, will be left out in the cold.

Mr. President, how do you think Russia and the People'sRepublic of China view this? Once the U.S. topples Saddam Hussein, the U.S. will virtually control 39.5% of the WOR. Logical deduction will lead Russia and the PRC to think that: Once the "virginity of the world" has been lost through a dubiously justified attack on Iraq, Iran, whom has already been included in the "Axis of Evil", will be next.

Once Iran falls, Russia and the PRC may continueto reason, the U.S. will then have virtual control of 49.8 % of theWorld Oil Reserves. This huge lever  will place the United States of Americaas, not the Leader of the World, but as the Owner of the World.

Not forgetting that... (1) Russia has only 5.6 of theWOR and the PRC virtually none; and that (2) Power corrupts even staunch Christians, as The Vatican has amply shown throughout history, it may just be that neither Russia nor the PRC will allow the U.S. to reach that coveted position;  first by Diplomacy and then by outright Force, if need be. Would History blame them?

The United States cannot bank on its economic and military superiority to carry out such plans - after the likes of Rich Ames, Robert Philip Hansen and those not uncovered yet - when it comes to the level of our National Security: The U.S. stands before its enemies naked as a Jay bird.

Mr. President, please carefully consider all the consequences associated with the direction the United States of America is now heading towards.
