Earth to America

United Kingdom, 29 October 2004

Dear America

We, like you, value democracy above all else. We respect your right to vote as you see fit for your leader. But since America is the world’s greatest nation, the leader of the US influences the whole world. We beseech you to take account of this when making your choice. President Clinton worked hard for peace around the globe. He was enourmously respected in Europe. When he spoke, we listened. George W Bush refused to sign the Kyoto Agreement on climate change. In Europe, we are working hard to reduce pollution but all our hard work is being undone because America is no longer participating. The invasion of Iraq has made us feel less safe, not more. Upwards of 15,000 people have died as a direct result of the invasion. We in the greater world want to see a US President who will work for world peace. That means dialogue and discussion other nations. Military action is only creating a hotbed of resentment. Please vote for peace.
