A Silent Antiwar Movement Is Unacceptable

The peace movement’s silence in the face of imperialist military escalations in Africa and the Middle East is unjustified and unacceptable.

On Monday February 25th, the U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, announced that the United States will be directly providing the so-called “Syrian opposition” with “non-lethal” aid in a coordinated effort to overthrow the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad.

In addition, U.S. officials have announced that the United States will be supplying the so-called “Free Syrian Army” with medical supplies and the U.S. Military’s Meal-Ready-to-Eat field rations.

This is a clear step toward escalation of the U.S. military intervention in Syria, which should not surprise anyone, given the well-known U.S. plan for a “New Middle East,” which is aimed at redrawing the map of the Middle East to secure its hegemonic domination of the region and its resources.

What is surprising, however, is the absolute silence and inaction of the peace movement against the criminal acts that are being openly committed against the people of the Middle East, and against the peace and security of the region and the world.
