Readers' Letters

Reader's feedback published on 25/09/2010
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 typically only publishes letters under 400 words, and these are subject to editing. The Daily Star will not acknowledge unsolicited submissions.

“World leaders seek new way to reach Millennium goals”
September 21, 2010

Tony Blair’s memoirs will read like a “love letter” to George W. Bush. The autobiography will praise the former US president, with whom Blair launched the controversial invasion of Iraq in 2003, as “highly intelligent” and “visionary.” In Blair’s case, I would have asked him that question, and I’d have pressed him on it. I’d have asked him whether God had ever restrained him. I find it very strange that we elect a politician who then claims to serve a higher deity who guides him: “I did what I believe is right.”
Well, will you tell us, please, how that relates to the Christian ethic? Do you believe in war first and negotiation afterward? Exactly how does this work?
