Reader's Feedback Published on 22/09/2007
Readers' Letters and The Daily Star is pleased to provide a forum for debate on a range of subjects, from local cultural activities to international politics.
Dozens, sometimes even hundreds, of letters fall into the editor's mailbox daily. In order to keep the letters timely, The Daily Star generally produces a special letters section. When the influx of letters is particularly large, extra space is made available accordingly.
If you would like to submit a letter for publication, please remember to include your full name (first and last) and address, including city. The Daily Star only publishes letters under 400 words, and these are subject to editing. The Daily Star will not acknowledge unsolicited submissions.

'White House paints dismal picture
of Iraqi leadership'
September, 15
Countries like China and Japan produce like mad and sell like mad and have huge trade balances, because they export more than they import. But the United States, they are such gluttons they guzzle down everything and consume everything, especially oil. The oil consumption in the US has not gone down the slighest bit. They're not conserving a bit, instead they're actually using more. Let the companies raise the prices, even put more tax on oil, and they still buy more. Raising prices is not going to slow those people down one iota from taking their Sunday afternoon drive or their vacation or their weekend trip, not a bit. The only thing that'll even stop them is rationing, and they're going to come to it one of these days. However, you and I know the American driver has an idea that rather than have their gasoline rationed and their vacations shortened and their big cars shortened, they would much prefer to go to war and steal it, grab off a few countries (Iraq and now Iran?) that have oil, and they can do it under the excuse of saving Israel.
