The Threat of Aggressive War in Syria

SANSAD News Release, August 31, 2013

In the face of the impending war of aggression against Syria South Asian Network for Secularism and Democracy (SANSAD) utterly condemns the fraud, hypocrisy, and war-mongering of US Imperialism and its subordinates in Britain, France, and Canada. We congratulate the British Parliament for refusing to allow the British government to engage in this war in violation of international law and the sovereignty of nations. We urge the governments of the United States, France, and Canada to respect the wishes of the people of these countries, who have overwhelmingly expressed their desire for peace and against wars of aggression.

The United States, which presents itself as the custodian of morality and humanitarianism in the conduct of nations has been responsible for the majority of wars of aggression in the world in the last fifty years that have led to the devastation of countries and the loss of innumerable thousands of lives. It has used Napalm, Agent Orange, White Phosphorus, and Depleted Uranium against civilian populations, not only causing immediate death but lingering maladies and genetic changes in vast number of people. We urge people to see through the hypocrisy of Western rectitude and their fraudulent claims of military humanitarianism. Imperialist wars of aggression, always masked, do not save people or bring liberty to the survivors. They cause immediate devastation and sow the seeds of further misery. We must unite against imperialism to bring peace and justice in the world.
