Wow! I was delighted with the response from the first letter from Saddam I posted so I thought I would share with you the wisdom of the 2nd letter.
Unfortunately at first I failed to make clear my source. After this letter I go into detail about that, but for now it can be found at: Google search “Joppa-Books-Ltd” Click on this site which should be the first result. There you will see a search table. Only type in the title bit. And simply type: “America reaps the thorns its rulers sowed in the world”.

Unfortunately the book seems to be out of stock. But you can obtain it though myself providing you don’t brake forum rules £3.00 as I would rather you support the shop whenever possible. Till then I can give away some for free. Eventually I will write all 3 open letters on this site but the booklet has far more information than I can be bothered to manually type for the moment.

All I caution you on is that everything you see before you has had to be typed by me from the booklet by hand as I do not have a working scanner. However I vow to you (in legally binding terms) that what I have written below is an accurate reflection of the content contained within the booklet to the best of my knowledge.
I would further caution you that the translation(s) available to me is in a state of what I believe to be of poor quality. Like the first one I have not changed the content. Unlike the first booklet I have made no attempt to modify the grammar in any way I do not see how it’s necessary. Especially when it’s counter productive towards the authenticity of what I am showing you.

Open letter from Saddam Hussein to the American peoples and the Western peoples and their governments…
Sep.14, 2001

In the name of God, the most Compassionate, the most Merciful.

“Once again, we would like to comment on what happened in America on September the 11, 2001, and its consequences. The comments we made the next day of the event represents the essence of our position regarding this event and other events, but the aftermath what happened in America, in the West in particular and in the world in general, makes it important for every leader to understand the meaning of responsibility toward his people, his nation, and humanity in general to follow up the development of the situation, to understand the meaning of what is going on, and hence to elaborate his country’s and people’s position so as not to restrict oneself to only following the event.
When the event took place, Arab rulers and the rulers of countries whose religion of their people is Islam, rushed to condemn the event. The Westerners rushed within hours to make statements and adopt resolutions, some of which are dangerous ones, in solidarity with America and against terrorism.
It is only normal to say that by the explanations of the present situation, as it has been said or by comparison to the action previously taken by America against specific countries, it could be enough for some of the executors of the operation to have come from a country named by America or said to have instigated the operation, for the American military retaliation on what they call aggression. We don’t know if they would do the same thing whether any the planners and executors of the operation were found, to have lived or held the nationality of a Western country or whether the intention and the designs are already made against an Islamic party.
It is most probable from the beating of media war drums that America and some Western governments are targeting a party who won’t be Muslim.
The event that took place in America is an extraordinary event. It is not a simple one. According to figures announced by official American sources or by what has been spread by media, the number of victims is great. Nobody has any doubts or denies that America and the West have the capabilities to mobilize force and to use it, to inflict destruction on the basis or simply doubts or even whimsically, and can send their American missiles and NATO fighters to where ever they want to destroy and harm whoever America decides to harm in a fit of anger, by greed, or by being pushed by Zionism.
Many countries of the world have suffered from America’s technological might, and many peoples do recognize that America had killed thousands or even millions of human beings in their countries.
The event that took place in America was an extraordinary one. It is not a simple event.
It is the first time that someone crosses to America to unleash the fire of his anger inside it, as indicated by what was said by the media, on the hypothesis that the executers of this act came from abroad.
Since this event is unprecedented, is it wise to deal with it by precedent methods that can be used by whoever has the technical and scientific capacities of America and the West!?
If the target and the aim is one or more Islamic countries, as it has been said by the media and the intelligence services of some Western countries, this would only fall in the same direction that America and the West have always taken by targeting their fire on whoever they wish to experiment a new weapon on.
We ask again: America’s targeting of its weapons on specific targets, and harming it or destroying it with the support of Western governments and of a fabricated story would it solve the problem? Would this bring security to America and the world? Or isn’t the use by America and some Western governments of their fire against others in the world including, or in the forefront of whom the Arabs and the Muslims, is one of the most important reasons of lack of stability in the world at the present time?
Isn’t the evil inflicted on America in the attack of September 11, 2001, and nothing else is a result of this and other acts? This is the main question and this is what the American administration along with of the Western governments or the Western public opinion should answer it in the first place with serenity and responsibility, without emotional reaction and without the use of the same old methods that America used against the world.
On September 12, 2001, we said that no one crossed the Atlantic to America carrying weapons before this event, except the Westerners who established the United States of America. America is the one who crossed the Atlantic carrying arms of destruction and death against the world. Here we want to ask a question: wasn’t the use of American weapons, including the nuclear bomb against Japan, enough before September 11, 200, for America to prepare to use it in a heavier and stronger way? Or isn’t using it in an irresponsible way, and without justification as does any oppressive force in the world, is what made America the most hated country in the world, starting from the Third World, to the Medium World and passing civilized word, as is the world divided by the West and America?
The national security of America and the security of the world could be obtained if the American leaders and those who beat the drums for them among the rulers of the present time in the West or outside the West become rational, if America disengages itself from its evil alliance with Zionism, which has been scheming to exploit the world and plunge it in blood and darkness, using America and some Western countries.
What the American people need mostly is someone who tells them the truth, courageously and honestly as it is. They don’t need fanfares and cheerleaders, if they want to take a lesson from the event so as to reach a real awakening, in spite of the enormity of the event that hit America. But the world, including the rulers of America, should say should say this to the American peoples, so as to have the courage to tell the truth and act according to what is right and not what is wrong and unjust, to undertake their responsibility in fairness and justice, and by recourse to reason, passion, according to the spirit of chance and capability.
In addition we say to the American people that, what happened on September 11, 2001 should be compared to what their government and armies are doing in the world, for example, the international agencies have stated that more than one million and a half Iraqis have died because of the blockades imposed by America and some Western countries, in addition to the tens of thousands who died or are injured in the military action perpetrated by America along with those who allied it against Iraq. Hundreds of being churches, mosques, colleges, schools, factories, hotels, and thousands pf private homes where destroyed or damaged by American and Western bombardment, which is going ongoing even to this day against Iraq. If you replay the images taken itself by the western media of this destruction you see they no different from the images of the two buildings hit by the Boing airplanes, if not more atrocious, especially when they mixed with the remains of men, woman, and children. There is however, one difference, namely that those who direct their missiles and bombs to the targets, whether American or from another Western country, are mostly targeting by remote controls, that is why do it as if they were playing an amusing game. As for those who acted on September 11, 2001, they did it from a close range, and with, I imagine, giving their lives willingly, with an irrevocable determination.
For this reason also, the Americans, and the world with them, should understand the argument that made those people give their lives in sacrifice and what they sacrificed themselves for, in this way.
When one million and a half Iraqi human beings die, according to Western documents, from a population of twenty five million, because of the American blockade and aggression, it means Iraq has lost about one twentieth of its population. And just as your beautiful skyscrapers were destroyed and caused you grief, beautiful buildings and precious homes crumbled over their owners in Lebanon, Palestine and Iraq by American weapons used by Zionists. In only one place which is a civilian, which is the Ameriah Shelter, more than four hundred human beings, children, young and old men and woman, died in Iraq by American bombs.
In the same day September 11th of September one of their aggressive military airplanes was shot down over Iraq. And on the same day of the event in America on 11th September, and American jetfighter was perpetrated aggression against Iraq and was shot down.
As for what is going on in Palestine, if Zionists let you see on your TVs the bodies of children, woman and men who are daily killed by American weapons, and with American backing to the Zionist entity, the pain you are feeling would be appeased.
Americans should feel the pain they have inflicted on other peoples of the world so that when they suffer, they will find the right path.
All that has been inflicted on the Arabs and Muslims by America and the West, didn’t push Muslims to become racists and harass the Westerners who walk the streets of Baghdad, Damascus, Tunis, Cairo and other Arab capitals, even when the Westerners, and especially Americans insulted the holy sites of Muslim and Arabs by what is almost an occupation of Saudi Arabia in order to launch their evil fires against Baghdad, and when the American carriers roam the Arab Gulf, and their fighters daily roam the sky to throw tonnes of bombs and missiles over Iraq, so that about two hundred thousand tonnes of bombs have been used against Iraq, in addition to using depleted uranium!! All these are facts that are very well known not only to Arabs and Muslims, but to the whole world also. But because of only one incident that happened in America in one day, and upon unconfirmed accusations so far, Arabs and Muslims, including some who hold American citizenship are being harassed openly and in public in America and some Western countries. Some Western countries are preparing themselves to participate in an American military action, against an Islamic country as the indications point out. In this case, who is being fanatic?
Isn’t this solidarity, and this in-advance approval by some Western leaders, of a military aggression against an Islamic country, the most flagrant form of new Crusades fanaticism. It reminds Arabs and Muslims of those Crusade war launched by the West and NATO against Iraq?
Finally, if you, rulers respect and cherish the blood of your own peoples, why do you find it easy to shed the blood of others including the blood of Arabs and Muslims? If you respect your values, why don’t you respect the values of Arabs and Muslims?
In the name of God, the most Compassionate, the most Merciful.
Invite all to the way of thy Lord with the wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue them in ways that are best and most gracious, for the Lord knoweth best those who have strayed from His path and who receive guidance.”



About The Above Letter…
This open letter was 5 solid pages of booklet writing. The third is 6. This is followed by other literature by Saddam, surprising stuff too (unless you really do happen to deny ignorance).
I’ve responded twice to the comments on the first letter (within the first 2 pages of comments in its thread). But I will explain again in more detail.

The letters were written by Saddam Hussein to American people almost immediately after the September 11th attacks. They were published together in a volume of other information from the Iraqi Information Ministry all of which where freely available to the worlds media.
This was both before and during a time when George Bush was publicly linking Saddam to 9/11.

I obtained the letters through a friend I met through my mum who visited Iraq shortly before the “liberation” bombing campaign. He met people at the Iraqi Information Ministry and they gave him English translations of the letters free of charge. Unfortunately he left them in his suitcase until my mum asked for photo copies.
She then got hold of the originals and had them published at a printing press. They have been distributed to many people including the highest levels of government but whether or not they were chucked in the bin on arrival is something I do not know (you would assume so given various events).
Anyway not only has the mass media effectively ignored the letters but the U.S military bombed the Information Ministry which I believe was also looted. But they are back from the grave with vengeance, and if anyone would like a copy then I will happily sell you one (providing it doesn’t break forum rules) and may even give a few away. I assure you they are genuine Saddam literature and invite anyone to cause this site to force me to confirm their existence to this site. It would make things lot easier if any doubters persist due to the problems of the selling website. So please, please do I would be sincerely grateful if the site would itself chose to confirm to all that they are indeed genuine.
I am fully aware that there are legal issues with distributing false information but I do not believe I have anything to fear from a crime I have not committed.
The booklets come with glossy covers and a total 61 pages (earlier I said it was 69 out of sloppiness). The booklets are of course only prints of the original documents. I these prints date back little more than a year.

Hope it’s been a good read and wish you and anyone else the best of luck with our political development.
Yours Alex

Thank god this guy is in prison eating Doritos.

And if you think Saddam has wisdom in his letters, you should seek out a serviceman, have him read this garbage, and tell him that there is wisdom. Youll be lucky to walk away with teeth.

Saddam is one of the greatest mass murderers in history. This man has actually used biological weapons on his own people. Funny how you havent published any of his wisdom on those events. Oh wait......hes going on trial for these events, and wouldnt want to incriminate himself.

Your kind of liberalism will be the downfall of the United States.

Liberal1984, again....I read them...but it's good to have the source so at least we can have a baseline on the "authenticity"
of the letters. Not authenticity on your part, I believe you are, as you said, typing what it is in the book..word for word. However I have doubts about the source's source.

Saddam was/is a very evil man, Im sure we can all agree on this. So why do people preach what he says as if it's from some great man who saved millions....he's just the opposite. IMO, his wrong doings that surpass what many will EVER do in 10 lifetimes will automatically cancel out anything good or right that he does. Kind of like Mansen, Gacy, The Unibomber and all the other psychos out there....no matter what they say, be it true or not..we should take it as nothing and move on. If some regular were to write these letters then yeah, I would respect that. But I cannot support, praise or honor a man of Saddam's level.

I am reminded from your first post the conditions in Iraq. Before and after.

What I am reminded of is the 500,000 children that died and the disease that was perpertrated on the Iraqi people due to harsh international santions.

Sure, Saddam padded his own pockets. The sanctions and the no fly zone lasted for 10 plus years....!!

Lert us not forget that Iraq had the third best health care system in the world.

Saddam speaks true of events that have unfolded. He was no Angel,
and neither are we.

Yes, Saddam inflicted attrocities. Have America no shame? We too have blood on our hands. Just becasue its in the name of freedom didnt make it right. The people of Iraq are demonstrating quite nicely that they have the ability to fight for what they believe, and do it in a convincing way that even has Amercan military forces stymied.

Thanks for the post. I am reminded that this man is a thinker, and that we did no think and rushed to justice.

Peace

Yeah, comparing the US as being as evil as Saddam is sad. You liberals are always being compared to being soft on terror, but you bitch about that lable. We can see from this post that its true. You guys are sickening.

What is evil? The UN backdoor oil deal? The fake WMDs? The Lies about Uranium?

Sir, this man that you call a liberal is one who speaks for equality and fareness for mankind and not merely for an international power.

Thanks for the compliment! I'm really sad that our media does not make this sort of material readily available. What sort of democracy are we when not only does our government not solve this problem, but when in all probability our politicians with their friends in the media (or should I say people in the media friends with politicians are behind it).
Why do people like me have to find this stuff like this that the media forgets to tell, and then get abuse for it?

Why was Saddam Hussein not relevant enough to Iraq to be given a fair hearing in front of our own people if that’s what we believe in? And say our government were to become even more Libertarian and actually disclose the number of civilian causalities in its war of liquidation, how many people would support the war then?
Hint: Saddam killed over 350,000 Iraqis over 30 years of power through oppression. The last Gulf War (for some reason we were more democratic back then) killed an estimated 250,000 Iraqis.
Saddam’s decisions as leader in Iraq cost Iraq many more lives. Over a million for the Iran Iraq war, yet it happened because the Iranians allegedly refused to stop paying the Kurds money to steer up trouble inside Iraq, even after Saddam had handed them a large section of the river between the two countries borders.
Not mention we supported Saddam over the Iran Iraq War but played God (or should I say “Great Satan?”) by selling arms to both sides. That is was a crime beyond ideology but greed and a desire to shape the region in our favour irrespective of human welfare.
Note: I believe the logic behind selling arms to both sides, was in part to prevent Saddam getting two powerful by denying a victory that could give him control over Iran.

250,000 Iraqis??

that number is a bit exaggerated. I'm getting 100,000

Here is a man that killed his own people and would not think twice about killing anyone that got in his way. All countrys are on a list for being evil.
Our country let another country continue on a path to let one tribe kill and exterminate 800,000 in Rawanda. They killed most with knives choping up children and old people. our leaders in the USA could have and should have stoped it but like the leaders of the country that had their people kill told are leaders you will do nothing because there is no oil here and you know what they did nothing. This world is very sad at the evil that men are doing and it is only going to get worse. May the grace and peace of the Father be upon all that are his.prophetseeker

Dear Evanfitz and prophetseeker I wrote and researched this response with you both in mind.

Evanfitz it looks like your site is very conservative in its estimate regarding the 1991 Gulf War cost of 100,000.
I am assuming in absence of civilian body counts that since this war is both on a bigger scale and a longer time period than the 1991 Gulf War that the total loss of human life from this invasion will be much more.

I typed…
Google search: “killed-250,000-iraqis”
You get 12 hits 9 stating that 1991 Gulf War killed 250,000 Iraqis.

But does Our Government Mind Killing Another 100,000-250,000?

Site: www.alternet.org...
States a pre war report predicting 250,000 Iraqis may die in this war. Also includes responding statement from Karl Rove “I'm more concerned about the 3000 Americans who died on September 11th”

Who is Karl Rove?
Google search: “Karl-Rove” (over 10 pages of results).

www.famoustexans.com... says...
“George W.Bush chief strategist, consultant to U.S Senators Phil Gramm, Kay Bailey Hutchsion and many other right wing politicians”

Prohetseeker Regarding life under Saddam…

Personally I think Karl Rove’s attitude to human life follows a similar or worse logic to Saddam’ since though Saddam killed 250,000-350,000 through oppression over 30 years of power that same oppression brought Iraq stability and a long period of economic prosperity.

Suggested Google Search: “Iraqi-living-standards pre-sanctions”
You get 4 results in total all of which back my point.

Quote
Site: admi.net...

“Reversal of Fortune

Before the Gulf War, Iraqi living standards were fast approaching that
of southern Europe, featuring free education, ample electricity, modern
farming, a large middle class and, according to the World Health
Organization, access to health care for 93 percent of the population. A
once proud and prospering nation fell apart as 525,000 Iraqis died in
wars since 1980, including 375,000 in an 8-year Iraq-Iran conflict in
which the U.S. sold arms to both sides.”

Don’t know about you but personally I would much rather have food on the table, freedom from being kidnapped from criminals let alone terrorists and a reliable supply of water and electricity, as opposed to none of these in exchange for the freedom to criticise the man who brought me these things. This is partly why I support Saddam (not to mention the fact that he was a secular Muslim.)

Life Now…

Site: news.bbc.co.uk...

UN Report entitled “Iraqi Living Conditions Survey 2004” Questioned 22,000 Iraqi households and concluded that it is “highly likely most Iraqi households receive less income than 25 years ago”.
By the way people did you know that 25 years ago was in Iraq life under Saddam?
Report also states that “almost a quarter of children aged from 6 months to 5 years are suffering from chronic malnutrition”
Report also states that in some areas the situation has deteriorated dramatically since the regimes fall. Baghdad receives 10 hours of electricity a day, half of that in 2003.

I wonder what Iraq would be like now if we had said to Saddam “you improve human rights and we’ll lift sanctions”. But we never did.
Instead we said “Get rid of your WMD’s and we’ll lift the sanctions”. So Saddam (and I admit stupidly) unilaterally disarmed.
Ripe for invasion Iraq continued to suffer. And in spite intrusive inspections lasting over years we never cleared Iraq of our charge with the result that inspections were frozen in 1998 by the Iraqi government, causing operation Desert Fox to be started.
And when the inspectors returned they were continuing their work up till a few days before the liberation bombing campaign began. The inspectors wanted to continue and France would have supported the U.S if they had, and if they had found anything incriminating. But the war must go on, and so it did and still does. What an example we have set for unilateral disbarment in the Middle East?
And what is it that Saddam should have done when all the paths of peace we offered him were impossible-fictional? Remember Saddam did not kick out the inspectors before the start of this war, we did.

I did oh about two minutes of research, Liberal1984, and ran across this article of interest to you. Apparently, despite the rancid conditions you so claim and assert concerning Iraq and the Iraqi people, they are moving on with life in the knowing that they will not be ruled ever again by one such as Saddam.

No doubt Iraq is getting better for most people a year after that report was done. To give them credit the U.S has done up a lot of schools, roads and other such things. But how much better?
All you need know with regards to that question is that Iraqi living standards were once fast approaching that of Western Europe. Most of the country enjoyed first world health care and education not to mention electricity and clean water supply.

It was the U.N economic sanctions and the bombing campaigns which caused these things to deteriorate so badly. And it is the absence of these things and little help from the U.S which is mending them.
That said there's more attacks in Iraq now than ever before, and many would argue that as long as the U.S stays it does more harm than good by making Iraq act as a giant magnet for every anti American terrorist in the middle east, not to mention the country itself.
With talking of cutting back troop numbers it looks as though we aren’t staying to get the job done, rather leaving to let it be done. We could have achieved that within 6 months of occupying the country if we had wanted-it was what most ordinary Iraqis wanted. But no we had to stay give democracy to a country where the majority of people are fundamentalist Shiite Muslims 53% as opposed to 42% secular Sunni Muslim (source Encyclopaedia Britannia).

But thanks for the site Seekerof

Apparently you dont remember or dont care about iraqis aggresion to its neighbor kuwait. Thats what caused the first gulf war and the subsequent UN sanctions. Iraq is not completly innocent.

Absolutely!

And there are many dirty hands originating from works in Iraq (not just the US), most choose to hide them rather than wash them; sadly, however Iraq’s and Saddam's immense historical crimes go unnoticed under the current day microscope.

Dear XphilesPhan Kuwait was part of Iraq for over 5200 years before the Summer Protocol of 1921 (i think that's the right one). We the British colonial rulers deliberately included as much of Iraq's oil within Kuwait’s boarders as possible, which is why the country is so amazingly oil rich. We did this as part of a policy of "divide and rule". Rather like walking into Britain and making London independent it would suit London very well because London is richer than the rest of the country, but equally would not suit the rest of country.

Iraq had foreign debts to pay after the Iran Iraq war and the Kuwaiti’s boosted their oil production, flooded the market and brought the Iraqi economy into recession. Saddam warned the Kuwaitis to reduce output but they said the Americans would protect them.
Worried that the large military he built for the Iran Iraq war would turn on him Saddam ordered them to re-unite Kuwait with Iraq, and yes the Americans did rescue Kuwait for exactly the same reasons the British created it; and yes the invasion of Kuwait was a mistake. But Saddam could not be publicly seen to have done what we said because we told him to because in the Arab world that would have been an instant disgrace which would probably see his military turn on him, and place somebody else like him in charge.
Furthermore a little known fact is that Saddam did offer to withdraw his forces from Kuwait if we had given him another 6 weeks, but the Americans ether wanted their war or didn’t want to be seen to lose face ether. But its for this reason Gorbachov (last president of the Soviet Union guy) did not support the Gulf War even though he was apparently close to doing so (certainly judging by the footage of the time). Shame because if he had it would truly have signalled the end of the cold war (un less the coming Yeltsin would have thought differently).
P.S Did you know the earlist history of Kuwait is thought to go back to 1710?
