Freedom Road Socialist Organizations condemns in the strongest possible terms, the cowardly attack on Syria carried out by the Trump administration, and accomplices in Britain and France. We demand that the missile and air strikes stop now!
While the scope of this attack is unknown at this time – except to the those carrying it out and the Syrian people who are experiencing it – we can say with certainty that this aggression deserves the opposition of all who are against war and injustice.
The Trump administration is claiming alleged chemical weapons use by Syrian government is the reason for this attack. This is not credible. At all. The U.S. lies to justify its wars. It was not so long ago that we were told that “weapons of mass destruction” were in Iraq, and Iraq was destroyed in the aftermath of this fiction. There is no evidence and no good reason to believe the talk about use of chemical weapons.
Syria is winning its war against reactionaries and foreign mercenaries, and a few weeks ago Trump claimed that he was thinking of withdrawing U.S. troops from the country. There is no underlying logic that makes the alleged chemical weapon usage by the Syrian government a believable story.
The U.S. is trying to maintain its domination of the Middle East, and that is the real reason it is attacking Syria. Syria is charting a path that is independent of imperialism, and as such, it is a thorn in the side to U.S plans for the region.
We urge all progressives to demand an end to the attack on Syria, and to support Syria in its efforts to resist those who would destroy it.
Stop the war on Syria!
End the missile attacks!
U.S. troops out now!
