An Interesting Indictment Letter

OpinionGot this indictment related letter today and thought I'd share:

"Amigos:
Con sincero optimismo leo y releo el artìculo referido a la noticia que tantos como yo esperábamos: poner fin a la soberbia del Presidente y su Vice.

Me alegro por Ustedes, y sugiero que se abra un sitio en el que las personas de buena voluntad adhieran a vuestra iniciativa.

Lo que han comenzado debería ser un "tsunami" humano. Si no es así... paremos el mundo y que nos dejen bajar!!!."

....

Spanish wasn't one of my languages, so I used an automated translator to get the rough idea and it appears that this person is in full support, and suggest we also set up a site for the whole world to make comments. I think.

Maybe someone who is fluent can help us out.

    I don't claim true fluency, and by all means let a native speaker tease out the subtler meanings here, but my quick interpretation is as follows:

    ---

    "With sincere optimism I read and reread the article referring to the news of what we hope: to put an end to the arrogance of the Pres and VP.

    "I am happy for you, and sure that you open a space where people of good will can cling to your example.

    "You may have begun what will be a human storm. If that is not to be .. stop the world and let us off! "

    Let us adhere!

    Oh c'mon,
    using those translation sites can be such FUN.
    Here's what babelfish gave me:

    "Friends: With sincere optimism I read and I reread artìculo referred the news that so many as I we hoped: to put aim to the pride of the President and its Vice. I am glad for You, and I suggest opens a site in which the people of good will adhere to your initiative. What they have begun would have to be "tsunami" human. If it is not thus... we stop the world and that lets to us lower!!!,"

    The email address ended in .ar, which I believe is Argentina.
    Translation from a fluent speaker
    Authored by: Timmy on Thursday, February 14 2008 @ 03:21 PM GMT+4
    I had a friend of mine who is fluent translate, and it's basically the
    same as Spinoza's, except she caught that the writer is suggesting a
    website be created:

    " Friends: I am so encouraged to read and re-read the article
    containing the news that so many people like me have been waiting
    for – putting an end to the rule of Bush and his Vice.

    I am so happy for you all, and suggest that you open a website at
    which like-minded people can sign on to your initiative.

    You have started what should be a human “tsunami”. If it doesn’t
    result in one….stop the world, we want to get off!!!! "
