There are things Ahmadinejad has said and done that have impressed me.
When the Iranian government wanted to scrutinize Americans visiting in Iran, Ahmadinejad opposed it.
I agree that there has been enough blood spilled on both sides.
Maybe the first step between the christian world and the islamic world starts with ahmadinejad.
Who in the West, besides the pope, is willing to met with ahmadinejad and resolve our issues peacefully?
As christians(ignore this if you are not one), we should give peace a chance.
5 years of war is long enough. However, if his intentions are not sincere, God help us.

ABC News Article
Is this how Iran trys to promote peace in the middle east?
- From OP Link.
He suggested it would be beneficial for the U.S. to withdraw its troops from Iraq and spend its money instead on domestic problems, citing the "many victims" of Hurricane Katrina who continue to suffer and "countless" Americans living in poverty.

In the late 1940s, the United Nations created the state of Isreal from a portion of the state of Jordan. Many Jewish people had been migrating to this area from Europe and elsewhere and legally purchased homes and farms prior to the creation of the state of Isreal. There was never a state of Palistine.
The new state of Isreal was immediately attacked by its Muslim neighbors and there has been war ever since.
I'd like to ask a hypothetical question. What would the state of the middle east be today if the muslim nations had not attacked the new state of Isreal but had instead said, "We welcome the refugees from Europe and elsewhere to come and live in Peace. We do not agree with the creation of Isreal as a state because it gives less rights to the muslims who were here prior to the creation of this state and will do everything that we can to work through the UN in a legal fashion to have Isreal give full rights to it's Muslim inhabitants"
To me, it always seems that muslim nations choose war instead of peace regardless of what they preach.

Well you seem to believe in public media. So you are living in a fantasy world.
the shame of it is that there should be a united effort from all territories against countries like USA, but there isn't.
I mean C'mon.. they are agressive... just right next to Iran. You have several other countries giving military support right there by the americans, in a country called Irak. What more do you want to proove that you and your government is WRONG?
What in the world are YOU talking about?
Sounds like your fantasy world is as well-elaborated like "Spawn - The Movie". Lol...
PS: There is no war against Terror.. It's mostly fictional. It's a construct made by western governments which themselves are being corrupted.
It should be called "War against corrupted democracy" or "War against notorious political Liars, and Citizen's ignorance."

As an American (living in NZ) I would like to reply to Mr. Ahmadinejad, it would seem only polite...letter writers like replies...it's a letter writing thing.
I see no return address for his letter...was this just him expousing his ideas with no real intention of any Americans writing back? How thoughtless, for a seemingly educated man....the free exchange of ideas and philosophies is the hallmark of civility and society.
For those who think this is not a proaganda stunt, please open your eyes...the man is either certifiable or naive as he can be...
While as an American, I in no way support everything my country (read govt.) gets up to, To believe that this man and by extension his govt. are concerned about my general welfare and that he/they earnestly hope that I will depose my govt. on his enlightned reccomendation is ABSURD!!!...he is playing to the sympathies of those who hope there is another way out of this...he is basically doing the same thing as Lil Kim only he doesn't sound as unhinged.
Ahmadinejad wants to come off as being noble, scholarly, caring, diplomatic...why?...the same reason Hitler did..he knows that in a true democracy it's the will of the people, that decides...he is trying to drive a wedge between those that favor a strong response to Iran and those that favor a more peacable approach.
While some of you will undoubtedly think I favor a conflict with Iran, I don't, ...it's a no win situation...but I would rather that Mr. Ahmadinejad keep his letters to himself.
Maybe he could write an honest letter to his countrymen before writing to mine.
One is left with the horrible feeling now that war settles nothing; that to win a war is as disastrous as to lose one...Agatha Christie
