Condemnation of Overnight Attacks Carried out by Western Powers in Syria

category national | anti-war / imperialism | press release author Thursday April 19, 2018 21:12author by sw - ShannonWatch Report this post to the editors

Joint Statement by Peace and Neutrality Alliance and by World Beyond War

The Peace and Neutrality Alliance along with World Beyond War condemns unreservedly the overnight attacks carried out by Western powers on the Syrian Arab Republic.

The pretext for this offensive is that a chemical weapons attack has allegedly been carried out by the Syrian Government and that international law banning prohibiting chemical weapons must be upheld. Given that the bombing of a sovereign state is itself a violation of international law, we are being asked to believe that international law must be broken in order that it be upheld -- a manifest absurdity.

Whether or not the Syrian Government has violated international law is a matter for appropriate authorities such as the International Court of Justice or the International Criminal Court to decide, based on the available evidence. The fact that the US, UK and France are not pursuing this course of action owes to the lack of any such evidence.

Not only has no verifiable evidence been produced, the fact that the bombing takes place the night before the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) are due to arrive to inspect the scene in Duoma suggests if anything a desire to frustrate genuine efforts to establish who was really behind the alleged atrocity.

In conclusion Roger Cole Chairperson of PANA stated "all possibilities must be considered in respect of this alleged attack, including the possibility raised by the Russian Federation that this was a false-flag attack to justify aggression against Syria. Western powers are certainly without scruple in the use of chemical weapons, as was demonstrated by the use of Agent Orange in Vietnam by the United States, the grotesque effects of which millions of people are suffering from to this day."
