Global letter urges Bush to avoid Iraq war
------------------------------------------------------------------------

SYDNEY - More than 300 lawmakers and groups, including members of
British premier Tony Blair's Labour Party and the Anglican church,
called on U.S. President George W. Bush and other world leaders
yesterday to avoid war in Iraq.

In a letter signed by peace activists, environmentalists, anti-nuclear
campaigners and politicians, the protesters said nuclear states,
especially the United States, should eradicate their own nuclear arms
stocks before tackling others over weapons of mass destruction.

"The possession of nuclear weapons, whether by Iraq or else by the US,
Russia, China, the UK, France, India, Pakistan and Israel is equally
unacceptable," the letter said.

"As long as these countries continue to possess nuclear weapons, others
will seek to do likewise."

The letter, sent to Bush, Blair and the leaders of Russia, France,
Germany, Canada and Australia on the eve of the first U.N. weapons
inspections in Iraq in four years, was signed by 318 organisations and
politicians.

Ranging from Britain to Egypt, signatories included Anglican Church
leaders, International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, the
U.S. Peace Council and green groups like Friends of the Earth Australia.

The 70 lawmakers included Frank Cook, Alice Mahon, David Drew and David
Chayton of Blair's Labour party, several European Parliament members and
others from around the world.

The signatories appealed to Washington not to launch a pre-emptive
strike on Iraq with no basis in international law, and to seek a
peaceful solution to its confrontation with Iraq through the United
Nations.

They urged the United States to allow the U.N. weapons inspectors to
conduct their work freely and to understand that weapons of mass
destruction could only be eliminated under a "global norm where
possession of WMD is unacceptable".

RE: WAR ON IRAQ/WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION

The undersigned organizations, representing people from around the entire
world appeal to the US administration:

a) To seek diplomatic means to solve the present crisis over alleged Iraqi
weapons of mass destruction, using the United Nations, rather than invading
Iraq, and avoiding taking unilateral military action with no basis in
international law.

We welcome the recent decision by the government of Iraq to allow weapons
inspectors back in to Iraq, and urge that the UN organize an inspection
team immediately and put it to work without delay.

b) Neither to undertake preemptive military action against Iraq nor to
coerce other countries into sanctioning or supporting preemptive military
action; rather to enable the inspectors to do their work freely and
effectively, accompanied by whatever UN peacekeeping forces may be
necessary solely for their safe passage and protection.

c) To understand that the correct approach to the problem of the
elimination of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and the establishment
of a global norm where possession of WMD is unacceptable, begins with:

(1)the elimination by ALL countries including the nuclear weapons states,
of weapons of mass destruction according to binding international
obligations - to which the USA is a signatory.

(2) acceptance by the United States and other nuclear powers, that full
implementation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty is essential to the process.

Strict implementation and verification of the Chemical and Biological
Weapons Conventions will also be vital to the pursuit of the global
elimination of these terrible weapons.

The Bush administration threatens to make war on Iraq.

It argues that Iraq's purported development of weapons of mass destruction
necessitates this.

All weapons of mass destruction, especially nuclear weapons, pose a clear
and present danger to the whole world.

We affirm our strong belief that no country should possess, use or threaten
to use such weapons and that they must be eliminated from global arsenals
under strict international control of the UN Security Council.

Allegations that Iraq has developed, or intends to develop, weapons of mass
destruction must be objectively tested and verified, and Iraq must comply
in full with disarmament resolutions of the United Nations Security Council.

We emphasize that the overwhelming preponderance of such weapons are in the
hands of the US and Russia, and then the UK, France, China, India, Israel,
and Pakistan. We further recognize that the NPT States Parties amongst this
group have made no serious effort to comply with their treaty obligations
under Article VI.

It was with great alarm that we saw that India and Pakistan were close to
a nuclear exchange last May and June. Israel has implicitly threatened
the use of nuclear weapons in response to a chemical or biological attack
from Iraq.

Iraq may or may not have made significant progress toward acquiring
weapons of mass destruction. The return of weapons inspectors to that
country will hopefully help to clear up exactly how much progress Iraq has
or has not made to that goal.

The United States however, is seeking both to maintain its current
arsenals and to build and test new nuclear weapons for use in war against
WMD targets. This and other new and aggressive nuclear policies set out in
the recent Nuclear Posture Review, contradict the United States
international legal obligations under the NPT. To demand that action be
taken against Iraq for seeking to possess WMD requires absolutely that the
US itself and other nuclear weapon states fulfill their treaty obligations
to eliminate their own WMD arsenals.

We affirm our belief that the use of nuclear weapons, against WMD or
conventional targets, can never be justified because of the uniquely
horrible human and environmental effects of these weapons.

The possession of nuclear weapons whether by Iraq or else by the US,
Russia, China, the UK, France, India, Pakistan, and Israel, is equally
unacceptable. As long as these countries continue to possess nuclear
weapons, others will seek to do likewise.

Unless it is prepared to act to disarm its own nuclear arsenal, the US has
no moral authority to act as the guardian of global non-proliferation
efforts. Rather, US insistence that nuclear weapons are essential to its
own security undermines non-proliferation efforts and justifies their
continued possession by others on national security grounds.

It is noteworthy that although the Bush Administration says that it aims
to protect the USA, its friends and Iraq's neighbors, these countries near
to Iraq have yet to ask for protection and unanimously oppose invasion
fearing regional destabilization.

A unilateral military invasion of Iraq, even if successful in the short
term, will unleash powerful resentment from Iraq's neighbors, and
strengthen the hand of the USA's enemies. It will negate whatever gains
have been achieved in so-called 'war on terror', and make more likely a
repeat of the events of September 11.

Unilateral military action would erode the rule of international law and
weaken the United Nations framework. So also would the use of pressure to
obtain a 'favorable' resolution in the security council.

We call on the USA to work with, and to respect, the decisions of the world
body rather than act outside the rule of law, or to twist the law to its
own purposes.

The Administration's case for war against Iraq has not been based on that
country's support of terrorist groups, and has presented no evidence to
support such a claim. More to the point, Iraq would be most unlikely to
relinquish control of WMD to groups outside its control unless it were
faced with a possible collapse of the state from invasion. If the
international community is concerned that the Iraqi government might pass
WMD to terrorist groups, then a military attack for the purpose of
overthrowing that government is irrational, because it would provoke
precisely the action it was intended to prevent.

To call an invasion of Iraq 'preemptive' has no legal basis, unless there
evidence of an imminent attack by Iraq on the US, its allies or regional
neighbors of Iraq. No such evidence is forthcoming. Iraq has not in recent
years provoked any other country and the CIA has itself stated that there
is no evidence that Iraq was involved in the events of September 11, 2001.

Accordingly the undersigned organizations and people urge that the
differences between the US and Iraq be solved by the use of the United
Nations framework, and that those who are genuinely and rightly concerned
over the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction take the measures
that are truly needed to solve that problem, starting with the elimination
of their own massive and deadly arsenals.

Finally we urge the United States to act as part of an international
community of nations under international law., and not as if it can do no
wrong and is entitled to use any means to achieve its goals.

We hope for your early and detailed reply,

(Signed)
