Condemn, Oppose and Resist US War Efforts!

U.S. imperialism, the number one enemy of people across the world and main source of world terrorism, has turned to war after the unprecedented attacks on the World Trade Center, the symbol of imperialist financial might and on the Pentagon, the center for military brutality the world over. We emphasize the fact that it is ridiculous and unbecoming of American butchers to shed tears for the dead ones. It is U.S. imperialism, which always trampled underfoot aspirations of democracy, equality and freedom for so many decades, and is now masquerading as saviour against terrorism. It has the ghastly record of dropping atom bombs on Japan, butchering thousands and thousands of freedom-loving Vietnamese, resorting to large-scale napam bombing in Vietnam, unleashing frequent missile attacks on Iraq, killing lakhs [hundreds of thousands] of people in various parts of the world and so on.

It is none but American imperialism that is interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, engineering coups and counter-coups, toppling elected governments in various countries by providing various lethal weapons to anti-democratic forces and encouraging them to take up terrorist activities. It oversees the world’s people, bullying the opposition with economic embargoes and starving millions of people all over the world to death. It is encouraging and practicing racism everywhere.

This savage imperialism is now howling at being hurt and humiliated by the strikes at the very heart of its financial and military might. The U.S.A. is now shoring up support of other states in its deadly military mission in Afghanistan. It even rejects the UN in its "Operation Infinite Justice", to let loose the floodgates of injustice against humanity.

In the course of this development, people worldwide are gradually registering their protests against this heinous act of US imperialism. Even a good number of USA citizens are raising their voice against this declaration of war. It indicates that in future all peace-loving democratic people worldwide will put up a strong resistance against war.

A black pall is descending on this part of the world. Not only the people of America and the likely victims of the American beastly attacks, but the whole of the international community is drifting towards a bloodbath of unimaginable proportions.

We strongly condemn the warmonger U.S. trying to drag the World towards a massive war. We appeal to all peace-loving democratic people to oppose U.S. war efforts in every possible way. We condemn the servile role of the reactionary governments of this region, including India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan, who dance to the tune of U.S. imperialism in the name of countering terrorism.

Let us redouble our initiatives and effort to resist imperialism by rallying the people worldwide and specially those of South Asia. Let us build up a strong and mighty anti-imperialist movement in these regions and spread it throughout the world.
