5. OF MY MAY 5, 1986 STATEMENT TO PRESIDENT JIMMY
CARTER, THERE IS HIS REMARK ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF
COLONEL QADAFFI BEING MADE A "MARTYR" BY THE
REAGAN ADMINISTRATION ATTACK ON LIBYA...THAT KILLED ONE
OF HIS CHILDREN.
A LITTLE FURTHER DOWN THE PAGE IS ONE OF THE REASONS THAT I TITLED THIS AWARD-WINNING WEBSITE WHAT I HAVE: THE SOURCE QUOTE OF THE PARAPHRASED TITLE IS ON THIS PAGE.
AND I REMINDED HIM OF THE TITLE OF HIS FIRST BOOK, "WHY NOT THE BEST?", WHICH WAS THE UNDERLYING PREMISE OF THE 1978 COMPONENTS OF MY "INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMATIC WORK...ON A DIRECT BASIS" FOR THE WORLD'S CHILDREN.
IF I PRESUME THAT THE SPECIAL DIPLOMATIC ADVISER TO THE U.S.
PRESIDENT AUTHORITY IN MY NAME REMAINS ACTIVE BECAUSE THE
CONDITIONS FOR TERMINATION OF THE AUTHORITY: A WRITTEN NOTICE
OF TERMINATION SIGNED BY THE SITTING U.S. PRESIDENT AND PAYMENT
TO ME FOR THE "INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMATIC
WORK...ON A DIRECT BASIS" FOR THE WORLD'S CHILDREN HAVE NOT,
TO MY RECOLLECTION, BEEN PROVIDED AS IS SPECIFIED IN THE 1978
GOVERNING "LEGAL AGREEMENT" RE CONTINUATION AND COMPLETION OF
THAT WORK--OR IS THE "BEST" POSSIBLE FUTURE FOR THE WORLD'S
CHILDREN WORTH NOTHING TO AMERICAN GOVERNMENT?-- RESUME HEREI
WOULD RECOMMEND YOU START FROM THE LIST OF CONTENTS AND PROCEED
THROUGH THE FIRST FOUR PAGES OF THIS STATEMENT THEN TO HIM,
WHICH ARE LINKED SEQUENTIALLY FROM IT.
Honesty and decency haven't lost
yet, my friend.
I am just now reading the April 28, 1986 Time magazine cover story, "Hitting The Source", about the American attacks on Libya, and i note your prophetic remark that the raid would make Colonel Qadaffi "a hero" to the Arabs and a worse menace than ever (which now appears to be coming true). Time also reported that you said:
"Mine is one of the lonely voices."
God moves and moves people in mysterious ways, my
We ignored much of the criticism in 1978 and proceeded to make the preparations for a more effective basis of world "peace, security, and justice."
In my January 17, 1983 statement to Mr. Clark and Canadian N.D.P. Leader Ed Broadbent (after having received no response from the Trudeau Government following my return to Vancouver from Ottawa), re-initiating the representation of the popular entertainers' "concern" since 1977 and 1978 and including a copy of the lyrics to "For A Dancer" by Jackson Browne in the submission(s) sent c/o Ms. Pat Carney, i also referred to these lines by Robert Frost in his poem, "The Road Not Taken", drawn from Robert McNamara's book, "The Essence of Security":
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference."
--by Robert Frost, copyright 1916 by
Holt, Rinehart and Winston, Inc., and
copyright 1944 by Robert Frost.
The Reagan Administration apparently ignores the fact
that its representation of "honesty and decency" in its struggle
with the world's supporters of terrorism is limited by its own
limited respect for my/our "International
Diplomatic Work...on a direct basis."
The President has not supplied me with new instructions as to how to deal with developments since the 1978 plans.
Would he have me and those i "influence' buy guns and settle disputes as they do?
Is this not, in reality, the whole basis of my "argument" with their policymaking? (And for that matter, isn't it essentially what "The Contadora Group" is disputing as they struggle for peace for their homelands?)
In His mysterious ways, He has once again shown "all of us" there are no winners--only losers--when human beings threaten and endanger that which He gave us and until right prevails over misdirected might.
And as He and we pointed out in 1978, sometimes things like
this just cannot be kept to "three-page limits"--even when the
most powerful one now of "all of
us" insists upon it.
Yes, i made the second submissions to the peace festival participants because an event like that would be a target for propaganda abuse. (One notes the timing by Botha according to the first attachment here*--likely on the eve of receipt of the registered letter by Desmond Tutu.)
Well, this is all i intend to say presently about these
"concerns." We're still on that "even keel" we were when we
started the 1978 preparations, with the key to resolution of the
"problems" remaining as cooperation and friendship. I continue
to agree with your commitment to "never lie" in your work on
behalf of the American people and for world peace and better
international understanding and relations, so i will continue to
follow your example. And i will ask the obvious question which
many of us now would like to have the answer for: If you were
given another four years as the U.S. President, what would you
do (beyond your March 2, 1986 challenge to Ronald
The question for the next elections for the U.S. Presidency is:
You still owe me dinner, my friend, which i gathered Paul Warnke also
wonders when you will provide for me.
God bless you and keep you and your family well.
*-SORRY, I HAVEN'T HAD TIME TO DIG OUT MY COPY OF
THE RELEVANT PART OF THIS TERM OF REFERENCE (IT WAS TWO ARTICLES
ON 1 PAGE) THEN TO PRESIDENT CARTER, THE MARCH 21, 1986
VANCOUVER SUN ARTICLE, "DEATHS MAR S. AFRICA
MEMORIAL", AND PREPARE A FILE OF IT FOR THIS AWARD-WINNING
HOWEVER, THE SUBJECT OF IT: THE INEXPLICABLE ATTACKS BY SOUTH AFRICA ON SOME OF ITS NEIGHBOURING COUNTRIES COINCIDING WITH WHEN MY FIRST 1986 REGISTERED LETTER TO MY FRIEND DESMOND TUTU WOULD HAVE BEEN ARRIVING IN SOUTH AFRICA--AND YOU MUST BEAR IN MIND THAT IT WAS OBVIOUS TO US THAT ALL MY TELEPHONE DISCUSSIONS WITH DESMOND AND HIS JOHANNESBURG ARCHDIOCESE STAFF IN MARCH-APRIL, 1986 WERE BEING TAPPED--IS ALSO INDICATED BY THE TERM OF REFERENCE YOU WILL FIND IF YOU TAKE A BRIEF SIDESTEP HERE.
MORE WILL BE SAID ABOUT THIS IN A MORE PUBLICLY KNOWN WAY SOON--THERE IS A U.S. PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN UNDERWAY AND I BELIEVE THE CONTENTS HERE MAY BECOME AN ELECTION ISSUE. BUT FOR NOW, LET'S JUST SAY THAT WHEN I GOT FED UP WITH THE INACTION BY THEN-PRIME MINISTER OF CANADA BRIAN MULRONEY AND HIS EXTERNAL AFFAIRS MINISTER, JOE CLARK RE APARTHEID, I TOOK A FURTHER STEP EXPLICATED BY WHAT YOU FIND IF YOU TAKE A BRIEF SIDESTEP HERE.
WANT TO KNOW FROM WHERE HE GOT THE TITLE FOR HIS FIRST BOOK,
"WHY NOT THE BEST?"?
IF SO, TAKE YOUR NEXT FOOTSTEP HERE.
