I am an American living in Texas. I am very impressed by your articles in English (I only wish I could read them in Russian!). Your publication seems to be more free now and less controlled than the American media. All people in the world who love freedom must do whatever they can to protect it and extend it until at last, the forces of slavery and repression in every country are defeated. Disgracefully, my country is following a foreign policy which I and many other Americans believe will be disastrous not only for the people of Iraq, but for the whole world. We are trying to effect a change, but since the United States is really not a free country, despite its propaganda, our efforts are limited. I applaud you and I hope you can keep up your good work. > Sincerely, James M. Buels
