I write to you in reference to Mustafa Alrawi's opinion piece Clear and present danger: Iraq is at a tipping point of chaos and confusion (August 28).

It's time to stop watching what Iran is doing abroad and it's time to act. It is never too late.

Save the dugongs: the oceans cannot survive without them

I write to you in reference to you editorial Dugongs need our help to survive (August 20).

Dugongs are very important for sea vegetation and regeneration because they are one of the few marine herbivores.

The Rohingya have been forgotten by the world

I write to you in reference to Mageed Yahia's opinion piece Two years on, the Rohingya and their Bangladeshi hosts are under extreme pressure​​​​​​​ (August 26).

Talks and empty promises by world leaders will not help the Rohingya. Unfortunately, the international community has abandoned the Rohingya, if it were not for our indifference, a poverty-stricken country like Myanmar would never have had the courage to commit genocide boldly and in full view of everyone. What's more, these atrocities have been committed under the complicit gaze of a Nobel Peace Prize winner. What a disgrace.

We must not let Afghans face the Taliban alone

I write to you in reference to Ruchi Kumar and Hikmat Noori's article US and Taliban finalising agreement to end war in Afghanistan (August 28). What about the future of the Afghan nation? If Afghans are left ot deal with the Taliban alone, they are sure to take over the country. Girls risk losing their access to education, inequality between men and women will be enshrined by law.

Will I never: Smith can't resist the lure of beautiful Dubai

I write to you in reference to Farah Andrews' article Hollywood star Will Smith has been in Dubai (again) this week (August 28).

I really want everyone to visit the UAE and enjoy the wonderful and breathtaking views.

Your tribute to Emirati women was inspirational

I write to you in reference to your piece 17 Emirati women talk to us about the biggest misconceptions they face (August 27).

I think these are some of the cleverest, most beautiful women in the world.
