LETTER TO LA TIMES
RE: “A fateful choice" Feb. 2 Op-Ed (for LA Times)
Chuck Freilich’s claim that an Iranian nuclear bomb may be an existential threat to Israel is not convincing. His calculations of war and peace skips over the facts that Iran says it is not now building a bomb, and that if it had a bomb Iran has no delivery systems. And his analysis never mentions that Israel has 200-400 actual nuclear weapons with fully capable delivery systems. This leads to several questions:
1. Why is it acceptable for Israel to have a nuclear arsenal of hundreds of weapons, but a threat to world peace if Iran has just a few bombs.
2. Why doesn’t Israel consider its arsenal of hundreds of nuclear bombs sufficient deterrence to any future Iranian nuclear threat?
Maybe the best way to stop Iran from working for a nuclear weapon is for Israel and the United States to set-up a Middle East nuclear-free zone, and invite Iran to join.

Subject: from Uzi... if you or somebody you know is deep in credit card debt
This is a different kind of email. I am recommending something based on my personal experience.
If you or somebody you know is drowning in credit card debt, or is having a tough time with banks and credit card and collection companies, please read this.
Some years back, due to illness and a weak economy, I fell badly behind on my credit card debts. After a few months, the credit card companies and then the collection companies began calling on a weekly basis. Some of the conversations were pleasant, others were downright intimidating. There were times it got quite frightening.
I am very fortunate to know Harvey Warren, author of Drop Debt. His guidance was priceless, and he helped me navigate the entire situation without allowing the banks and collection agencies to intimidate me. He told me what to say, and when I applied his advice then as if by magic the nasty wolves turned into sweet lambs. (Amazing what happens when the financial companies realize they are dealing with an educated consumer who knows his legal rights…)
When my health and financial situation turned around, Harvey gave me guidance on how to settle with the credit card companies for a percentage of the debt.
Of course, all of this lowered my FICO score drastically, so I worked with Lou Rodriguez, one of Harvey’s associates, to clean up my credit score.
I hope that you are not dealing with this kind of situation. However, in the United States of 2012, too many people are. And if you are, knowledge is priceless, not only in terms of money saved but also in terms of peace of mind and sleeping well at night. Feeling threatened or intimidated by financial companies is not fun.
Harvey is now launching two programs. “Drop Debt Help Program” is a no-cost program. It provides you with an ebook that gives you some basic education in this area, and then two videos in the days after you download the ebook. This is all *no-cost* and may be all you need to resolve things.
Get your free ebook here: http://www.dropdebthelp.com/uzi-recommends.html.
If, after you go through this material, you decide you want Harvey to coach you directly, you can register for the Drop Debt Coaching Program. The information for that will appear at the end of the second video.
*I have declined all commissions from the Coaching Program*; instead, I negotiated with Harvey a special rate for readers of this list and for anybody that you send this email to (and anybody they pass it on to, as well). A one-time fee of $97--which is a 50% discount-- gives you access to more information and to Harvey’s individual coaching. These will guide you, step by step, in how to deal with the banks and credit card and collection agencies.
The coupon code for the 50% discount that you and your friends can use for the Coaching Program is Uzi50. (Again, I make no commission from this.)
This Coaching Program comes with a 30-day money back guarantee. If you are not happy within 30 days of registering for the coaching program, you can request a refund.
I hope that you are not in need of this program. But if you or a friend needs this service, then based on my direct experience I feel very comfortable recommending Harvey to you.
Here again is the link to get started:
Please feel free to get back to me with any comments or questions.
Wishing you well,
