European Commission President

Asked for a reaction to Chancellor Schroeder’s suggestion that the new European Commission President should come from either a Euro-zone country or Schengen area, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that he had dealt with this matter on Friday morning and had nothing further to add to what he had said at the time. In our view, all EU countries were equal and should be treated as such. However, we had absolutely no intention of getting drawn into speculation about candidates for the job of Commission President. The Taoiseach should be allowed to consult with other EU Heads of Government and reach a genuine consensus on the matter. Asked if the Prime Minister disagreed with President Chirac’s view that the candidate should be able to speak French, the PMOS repeated that every country should be treated as an equal. Asked if Downing Street would back Chris Patten’s candidature, the PMOS pointed out that Mr Patten had in fact withdrawn his name from consideration.

    From: rahul kumar <krahul0@gmail.com>
    To: president@whitehouse.gov,vice.president@whitehouse.gov
    Date: Jul 1, 2007 1:30 PM

    To: The President of The United States.
    Sub: What sort of GAME is this?

    Dear Sir,
    I am writing further to my letter of date Mar 15, 2007 to Mr. Ban-ki-Moon, UN Sec Gen. (www.sungod-aids.blogspot.com)


    I hope by now you too must have realized somebody is stopping you from moving ahead and the World too. Everywhere there is deadlock and only miseries can be seen.

    Now I want to expose everything straight.
    Step 1. Sun is not looked upon as God But as as member of Planetary System.
    If you refer my letters in above website, there it was a question of solving AIDS crisis by taking
    help of The Sun god.
    (If The World is not willing to seek His help, how can He enforce His will to seek His help to
    solve that crisis. Now all those things are kept aside of solving AIDS).
    Step 2. His main objective is to make people all over the World shout in pains, and then create a need
    for God\x92s help, and then make them shout,…God help me….God help me. And finally to seek
    His help in solving World crisis.
    E.g. Current World debate is on Climate Change. First, Is it a man made problem?
    Can emission control/ Science really solve that problem? What can be final option? To
    look up in the sky, raise the hands and humbly seek help by saying. Help me God.
    You can take other e.g. too. Say Middle-east Crisis, Iraq, Darfur, Hunger, Diseases\x85
    Step 3. For this He is expecting World\x92s Decision maker to take His name.
    By restoring back the World order, World can understand Him that He is not a Shinning
    star but a Divine Power/God Who was not looked upon till now.
    Step 4. The Climax of this Game is \x91To solve AIDS crisis from top\x92. To show scientific community
    where exactly they got stuck in solving this problem.

    I UNDERSTAND ALL THIS SOUNDS STUPID BUT THIS IS WHAT IS TAKING PLACE IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW. It is a shear \x91Fight of Ego\x92 between Him and World Decision Makers to establish supremacy of \x91Say\x92.
    The World is in transition phase from Step 2 to Step 3.

    Why I know this because, all this started from me. I invited Him on Earth for good of humanity. As God nobody was listening to Him so He took an Evil-form to teach Humans a lesson by spoiling all good things at every corner of Globe & sowing seeds of Pain, Pain and only Pain.
    Since Sept. 11 we all are witnessing series of dreadful events.
    In short He is taking revenge for Ignorance and Humiliation.

    I still don\x92t understand what sort of relation ship is being established\x85.Till Worlds main decision maker will not take His (Sun God\x92s) name my life will remain as it is.
    He (Sun god) is torturing me 24 hours a day, now it is over 8 years, just UNBEARABLE. He smolders my body, if I tell others nobody will accept it, the only option remains is \x91to suffer\x92. For some relief my mother pours water over my body.
    You know why? For simple reason, UN Sec Gen/ US President did not take His name from His mouth as \x91Help me Sun God\x92 in front of everybody. Nice game isn\x92t?

    I should have understood my \x91Limits\x92 (in Hindi \x91Aukat\x92) before undertaking AIDS crisis to solve by taking His help. That I am a very small person from Developing Nation and person from Developed Nation only has the right to do so. More over there is a tremendous clash over \x91Ism\x92. But now it\x92s too late for me to learn this expensive lesson.

    My understanding was since AIDS is a Global crisis, World will listen to me if I suggest them a way for cure, I was ignored like a BLOODY HELL.

    Open-minded Spiritual people may understand much better what I am writing to you.

    Please don\x92t misunderstand me that I am asking anything from you. You/ World should know there are also some people who try to do some good things being in dark and how their goodness is rewarded.

    There are many scintillating stars, who talk big, just to be in focus all the time. May I know how much they contribute?
