Determined Political Protest against US Bombing of Syria Needed NOW

By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 06 September 2013

Barack Obama is selling the planned US Cruise missile bombing of Syria as a “humanitarian” act in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack.  Bombing Syria will kill more civilians, polarize the situation further, and invite even more intervention and weapons into the country, making it more likely that the civil war could expand into an extremely dangerous regional conflagration. Moreover, launching an attack on a country that isn’t threatening yours is the supreme international war crime.

The bloody Syrian civil war – where big powers are funding both sides – has already killed 100,000.  Atrocities have been committed by both the Assad government and the mixed group of pro-Western and Islamic Fundamentalist opposition.  None of the warring parties offer a future for the 23 million Syrians, many who are refugees from U.S. and Israeli wars on Iraq and Palestine.

This planned U.S. airstrike on Syrian is already unpopular, but that doesn’t mean Obama won’t do it.  The British Parliament, which George Bush bullied into supporting the US war on Iraq, said “no” to bombing Syria, and the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll shows only 9% of those polled favor U.S. military intervention.  

Obama is now amping up his argument, demanding Congressional approval for his planned attack, bowing to some pressure that he include them.  But the Obama administration says even if Congress doesn’t endorse his plans, he won’t be bound by their vote. His argument for intervention is directed at other countries governments, at pressuring Congress to come along, and at you, to go along with the war crimes he plans.

People in this country have to get visibly and loudly into the streets in protest; on the airwaves, on the Internet, and everywhere, to denounce this coming attack.

No, not in our name! Humanity and the planet come first. No to U.S. planetary domination.
