Thoughts : Politics (War & Peace)

America’s Credibility Already Lost: An unpublished letter sent to The Straits Times on the 16th of May, 2003 in which I argue that America’s credibility does not depend on Weapons of Mass Destruction being found in Iraq as she has already lost it when violating International Law by not giving peace the best possible chance.

War Not a Last Resort and Therefore Not Just: An unpublished letter sent to The Straits Times on the 3rd of April, 2003, arguing that as America did not exhaust all possible non-violent means to disarming Saddam before declaring war on Iraq, this war can never be seen as just even if Weapons of Mass Destruction were to be found.

Reasons for Not Going to War: An unpublished letter sent to The Straits Times on the 25th of February, 2003, listing out the reasons for not going to war.

From Deterrence to Pre-emption: America’s Arrogant Unilateralism: An unpublished letter sent to The Straits Times on the 23rd of September, 2002 about the arrogant shift to political unilateralism revealed in America’s recent National Security Strategy paper.

America’s Thirst for War: An unpublished letter sent to The Straits Times on the 18th of September, 2002 about America’s relectance (or perhaps only that of Bush and his men) towards an outcome of peace with Iraq, preferring war instead.
