Dear China Internet Information Center:
I would like to tell you that it is great that your nation is being the only one in the world that is standing firm with Iraq. You have always supported the Iraqis, my people, in every way from humanitarian help to opposing what the American and the British are doing to the Iraqis. And the Americans say that their land is the land of democracy!
Between June 1997 to April 2001, I visited Iraq sixteen times and each time my trips have lasted one to two months and during that time I became very familiar with the life style and the ineffectiveness of the oil-for-food program. I lived the terrible life that the Iraqis are enduring and I can assure you it was not easy. I know the real story about what is going on there.
I have been writing a book and I have, as of last Friday, sent it to the printer to have it printed. This book will make a very good statement about Iraq.
Washington, DC USA
