NO to Syrian War
The blood-letting must stop. Obama wants to bomb the war-weary Syrians to prove he is tough, to punish Assad, to make the world safe from chemical weapons. Hogwash.
It’s not tough to harm weaker people. It’s what bullies do. Bullies aren’t tough; they’re cowards.
Assad will not be punished by Obama’s bombs. They will not affect the balance of power in the civil war. They will strengthen his position, as he will be seen resisting the Colossus. They will harm innocent children and civilians, as bombs always do.
The bombs will not free the world from chemical weapons. War criminals will continue to use them, including our own war criminals.
Nobody in Syria wants us to attack, except the rebels, who are losing. A strong majority of the British people are against the attack. Even the House of Commons is against it. A strong majority of the American people are against the attack. We will see if our elected representatives obey the will of the people or the will of their corporate owners. The major media, the propaganda arm of our corporate owners, has been beating the war drums for weeks.
The attack on Syria will be another war crime. Nations long ago agreed that there shall be no wars unless a nation is imminently attacked, or unless the United Nations authorizes the action. Obama seeks Congressional approval only because he lacks popular support and international support. Even if Congress approves, the attack on Syria is still a war crime, because we have not been attacked, and the United Nations has not authorized the action.
People of good faith say we have to do something. We do. If chemical weapons were used, it is a war crime. The perpetrators should be hauled into the Hague for prosecution as war criminals. Fact-finding should occur. Judgment should be handed down. It may take time. It’s worth the time to punish war crimes without making war. It took decades to get Pinochet, Rios Montt, Eichmann. Some of our own war criminals have been identified but not yet brought to book, like Henry Kissinger. It’s hard work. But it’s worth it. You don’t punish a war crime by committing another one.
If Obama wants to take a moral stand, let him prosecute the war criminals who lied us into Iraq. Let the evidence be seen and weighed. If his Secretary of State has valid evidence of Assad’s war crimes, submit it to a proper international court for judgment that punishes Assad, not the people he rules.
Sadly, Obama does not believe in courts or due process. He meets every Tuesday to decide in secret who will die without either.
But what if this is another false flag? What if the chemicals were deployed by the rebels, or outside provocateurs? By the time we find out for sure, many more innocent Syrians, and who knows how many young Americans and allies, will have paid with their lives. The U.S. rushing to war on fake “intelligence.” Where have we heard this song before?
Say NO to war on Syria.
