This is a letter from the American people.

The first thing we’d like to say is, we’re really sorry. Instead of trying to understand you and your country and instead of gathering information so that we could at least become informed thinkers, we have simply written you off as a terrible man who rules a terrible country. This is a very child-like thing to do, and we’re sorry for behaving like children.

Secondly, we’re also really sorry for the way you were treated when you came to New York to speak at Columbia University last September. Instead of treating you with the respect that you deserve as both a member of the human community and a world leader, we treated you like and uninvited guest and even made fun of you. This was neither humane or professional, and we apologize for our behavior.

Third, our main stream media has done much over the course of the past year to try and convince us that going to war with your country is a good idea. Our President and other members of our government have also spent their time trying to force this idea down our throats. Fortunately their efforts have not succeeded.

“According to a new poll from Public Agenda, nearly 50 percent of those who follow the situation in Iran say “the one” best way to deal with Iran is through using diplomacy “to establish better relations.” Only five percent favor threatening military action, down from nine percent in fall 2007. Seven percent support taking military action:” (1)


With this information in mind, we would like to apologize in advance in the case that the leaders of the United States decide to take military action against Iran. We realize that we elected our leaders, but what you must realize is that our leaders no longer act in ways that represent the majority will of the people they govern. Our country’s continued involvement in Iraq is evidence of this. So, in the event that the United States government decides to take military action against Iran sometime in the next seven-and-a-half months, please understand that such action will not be in accordance with the will of the American people and that we will be getting a new president next January.

Cordially and respectfully,

The American People
