Syrien: In Jordanien treffen sich ab 25.08 die NATO-Generäle

Die deutschen Konzern- und Staatsmedien zündeln gemeinsam. Obama droht mit Krieg. Nach außen heuchelt er Zögern, aber hinter den Kulissen gibt der Guantánamo-Pate die Angriffspläne in Auftrag. Das ist offene Weiter...

“ Stop The War Preparations Against Syria: Peoples Want Peace” - AKF-EUrope contribution to Spring Meeting in Istanbul

Statement to Istanbul/Antakya International Conference “Peoples Want Peace” presented  by Irene Eckert

April 25th to 29th 2013

In the name of reason the German Working Circle for Peace Policy says NO to military interventionism, NO to to all efforts favouring the suprimacy of the Western hemisphere, NO to military bases abroad and No to the deployment of questionable „patriots“ near the border of Syria. We say No to the  ongoing destabilisation of yet another  beautiful Mediterranean country, a friend of the Palestinian people. We veto the terrorist attacks from hired foreign mercenaries. We do not consider them rebells, democrats  or the like. We do not call them oppoisionals or even extremists we consider them terrorists and murderers. We advocate legal methods against them and we defend International Law. We therefore stick to the letter and the spirit of the UN-Constitution and say YES to the Humanitarian Conventions build upon it. We say NO to the manifold hypocritical pretenses. We say NO to the questionable concept under name of „Responsibility to Protect“. We say NO to its  secretive formula R2P which means nothing but meddling in the affairs of souvereign countries. We veto neo-colonial efforts for „Regime Change“. This title also stands for interference in the internal matters of UN-family-members. This, we will not and must not acccept. As peaceloving people we will  defend the souvereignity of nations small and large and their legitimate governments. We reject the neocolonial idea that foreigners should decide who will govern Turkey or Syria or any other country in the world. Democracy is our shield and it must be defended at home.
Since the foundation of our working circle in the heydays of the peace-movement of the early 80ies we have been saying NO the deployment of nuclear missiles and to threats with preemptive nuclear strikes. We logically also reject the deployment of missiles near the border of a neighbouring country under the pretext to establish a no fly zone, under the pretext to forward democracy or to defend human rights. A no fly zone means war as we have seen with Libya.  Threating with war is already a flagrant violation of the UN-Charter. Even Threatening other nations with violence means breaching the UN Charter. Threatening with means of mass destruction and using them belongs to the arsenal of imperial powers. They have not hesitated to apply such lethal machinery twice at least. Accusing small nation of doing the same sounds like a macabre satireSuch accusations must be dismantled as vicious and defamatory.  A Nuclear Free Europe is on our agenda. And we also say yes to a Nuclear Free Middle East and yes a Nuclear Free World.
While defending internationala law, while defending democratic values, we also firmly demand cuts in military expenditures. Our call is for defence of human needs as our first priority. Expenses for warfare are an obstacle  to this goal. In Germany, in Europe and on all continents the peoples strive to be liberated from want and from the burden of warfare. Our late Chancellor Willy Brandt used to underline that „Peace is not everything, but everything is nothing without Peace“. The worst enemy of humankind is War itself. The War on Terror is War. Its astronomical costs are inacceptable. Home defense can never be achieved by means of terror, home defense is not very costly either. Public funds must be re-directed to help free us from want and the planet from pollution. Peaceful solutions for all conflicts can be achieved once we stop feeding the war machine and the banks. Budgets for peace is what we want.

Foreign military locations are contrary to people's needs everywhere and they  swallow heaps of tax money. In Büchel and Ramstein in Germany, in Vincenca in Italy, in Okinawa, Japan and on Jeju island in South Korea, citizens stand therefore up and say „No“ to foreign military installations. Nobody wants to host nuclear and other military devices in their backyard. Citizens say „No“ to the 30 000 starts and landings at the US-airbase Ramstein in the Rhein-Ruhr-area in Germany. They say No to the noise damage caused by the fighter bombers and  No to the lethal damage they carry to their destiny.
As an obligation from our war-ridden history only peace must start from German soil! 

One more reason to say NO to the investment into 6,527 German soldiers abroad!
NO to the German military presence at 15 different theatres of crisis and war abroad!
No to the 8 billion Euro of German tax money wasted on the Afghanistan-„mission“ since 2001!
NO to 68 million Euro in 2012 for the KOSOVO-“mission“!
No to the 62 million for the  German „presence“ at the Somali cost! 
 And No to the 25 million for the Lebanon „mission“.

German foreign interests must no longer be defined by sanctions, threats, and military missions. We therefore call for a fundamental Change in Policy. We disagree with TINA-fatalism. Alternatives are right there. Let us pick them up. Let us learn from other nations, from other continents. In mid-April President Rafael Correa from Ecuador illustrated at the Technical University of Berlin, that  it is possible to help blossom economic growth and scientific research by putting human needs as first parameter for public decision making.
Our NO to feeding the gun-smiths, to helping arms exporters is well founded. Economic growth and scientific progress do not come with them. Producing tools of warfare is destructive and serves only the greedy interests of one percent of our societies. This tiny minority can be and must be stopped before their lethal course will lead us into another major catastrophy. It is late, but not too late.

Our Struggle Is For Life - Whereas NATO Bears Death!

This why we call upon all our compatriots and on all the peoples across the planet to join us in the struggle for peace and for a livable society, a society where women, the young and the elderly can fully participate.
Obviously, all citizens want communities that  are healthy and livable, that allow for the young generation to use their creative potentials, to develop their personalities, to perform excellently and to do so without drug-misuse. All peoples strive for an economic order under which nobody will be forced to make harmful choices. We all  together strive for a world where careers and children are compatible and both part of a meaningful and humane life. NATO with all its lethal infrastructure is contrary to a humane vision. Even its „Smartest Strategy Concepts“ can never fullfill our dreams and visions.
NATO can only secure the interests of a tiny handful of oligarchs, a handful of people, who do not want to share the natural riches of Mother Earth. It is our duty as peacmeakers to challenge those few on their road to destruction. We must help one other to understand the true nature of the NATO–alliance. We must not allow this anti-social coalition to continue bullying the world. A look at history can help. No empire has lasted forever. No matter how affluent their available resources and how powerful their military machinery, no matter how brutal their methods. They all came to an end. Contrary to its appearance of strength, the moment of truth for NATO is already on the horizon. Its wisdom has come to a dead end. Whereas its military apparatus swallows almost every tax dollar, the serious global economic crisis increases its weakness. Conflicting interests within the military alliance are growing. And we, the people need dearly butter instead of canons. We must be aware of its frailty. People need jobs, but not in the war-machine, not at the expense of the lives of our husbands, sons and grandsons, not at the expense of any life. Let us therefore join voices for the retirement of NATO . Let us  block  the road to distruction. This call is urgent if humanity is to survive.

Our coming together here in Istanbul will be a major contribution. It will help to overcome „the unjustified and unacceptable silence of the 'peace movements'“ the world over. The paper of the US-Peace Council on Syria,the Middle East and Africa issued on March 20th 2013 needs to be translated. The very precious US-document covering the „Imperialistic Military Escalations in Africa and the Middle East“ must be studied closely. It will help us to overcome the agony of our respective tired and weary movements.

No matter what our differences or our visions are, let us be clear on one thing:  Neoliberal strategies breed war and they deprive all peoples of their basic needs. We can over come these strategies and replacce them by others. Let us learn from the Latin American peoples. They have been trough all imaginable crises and they offer their experiences freely.
Let us begin organizing from scrap and if necessary on the on the smallest scale. Let us meet our neighbours in a friendly manner and share our frustration with exploding rents and barricaded roads and talk about legal ways to object. Let us have meaningful talks about real issues at workplaces among friends and in family circles. Most political parties, citizen's associations, NGOs as well as trade unions are no longer reliable, they have become more or less obsolete. The media are not helpful as they are in the hands of the one percent. They all share the neoliberal strategies. We must inventive. We can and will find ways to communicate if we now what is needed.
As war resisters and as people of vision we are bound to challenge neoliberal strategies , because its structures and needs necessarily feed into the war machine. This why organizing against war begins where basic people's needs are violated, at home, not abroad. We must visualize where our tax money goes and we must say where it should go. Moral and ethic opposition to war and military intervention are important, knowledge about international law helps a lot. But let us be vigilant. we must no longer be fooled by enemy images coined for us. We must no longer allow the humanitarian question be misused as a tool for warefare. Bombing for human rights and humanitarian military assistance are a nonsensicle concept. Humanitarian goals can never be achieved by terror and through warefare. Human rights violations must challenged at home, where we can find out names and addresses of those responsible for it and take them to court. Let us defend the law against the powerful lawbreakers. Let us learn how to speak truth to power at home and let us join voices for social justice programs in order to help meet the most urgent human needs. Our demands are simple:

Budgets for Peace! Cut the military! Feed the cities! Human needs at home first!
Invest in hospitals, schools and public infrastructure!
Respect national and international law!
Trust other nations to solve their problems and respect their sovreignity!
Withdraw „patriots“ and other military equipment from the Syrian border!
Stop funding mercenaries, thugs and terrorists!
Retire Nato!

Zum Anti-Kriegstag: Schluss mit den Kriegsdrohungen!

  • Ägypten, Tunesien, Syrien, Yemen, Palästina: Chaos, Verbrechen, Zerstörung, das ist der Fußabdruck, den die imperiale Machtpolitik überall hinterlässt, fordern wir daher einmütig:
  • Hände weg von Syrien
  • Beendet die Militärhilfe für Ägypten! 
  • Schluss mit Drohnen-Mord,  mit Terrorsaat,  mit Folterlagern   und  mit Spähprogrammen!
  •  Schluss mit der Verurteilung von Bradley Mannings für die Aufdeckung von Kriegsverbrechen! 
  • Respekt für Menschen- und Bürgerrecht! Das Studiums des US-Friedensrat-Papiers und der  Blick auf die tagtäglichen Ereignisse in Nah-Ost legen folgende  Forderungen nahe:
  •  Der Militärhilfe für die Repression von Völkern muss Einhalt geboten werden!
  • Der Einmischung der USA und seiner Verbündeten in die inneren Angelegenheiten souveräner Nationen ist  mit Entschiedenheit entgegenzutreten.
  • Widerstand allerdings  gegen  eine asoziale, neokoloniale und zutiefst menschenverachtende  Politik ist nicht  "terroristisch".  Sie ist nicht als  "islamistisch" und  auch  nicht als von Muslimbrüdern gesteuert abzutun.  
  • Die sofortige  Einstellung der  US-Militärhilfe für Ägypten von 1,3 Milliarden Dollar ist das Gebot der Stunde!
  • Fordern wir ein Ende der Einmischung durch unser NGOs und Stiftungen aller Couleur in souveräne Nationen!
  • Fordern wir  die Beendigung der Waffenlieferungen seitens unseres Militärs an Staaten, die die Menschenrechte missachten!
  •  Fordern wir  ein Ende der  militärischen Aufrüstung fragwürdiger Rebellen, entlassener Zuchthäusler und Mörderbanden in Syrien und anderswo.
  •  Fordern wir die Achtung von Recht und Gesetz, die Achtung völkerrechtlich verbindlicher Konventionen und zwar  von unserer Regierung, von unseren Politikern.
  • Fordern wir ein Ende von Krieg und Besatzung und von  illegaler Siedlungspolitik in Palästina-Israel und die Beendigung der bösen Farce, die sich als  'Friedensgespräche' tarnt.
  • Fordern wir eine Beendigung der bürgerrechtswidrigen Ausspäh-Aktivitäten durch BND und andere        Geheimdienste!
  • Weisen wir das anmaßende Gerede von 'Notwendigkeiten im Dienste unserer Sicherheit'  zurück!
  • Fordern wir gebührenden Respekt vor der Würde  des Menschen, die zu achten und zu schützen Aufgabe jeder staatlichen  Gewalt ist.
  •  Fordern wir ein Ende der Hatz gegen die Aufdecker von Kriegsverbrechern  und die sofortige Freilassung von Bradley Manning, der unser Bruder ist!
  • Setzen wir uns kompromisslos für Völkerrecht und  Frieden ein, indem wir die Kriegshetzer bloß und  an den Pranger stellen!

Stoppt das völkerrechtswidrige Vorgehen des Imperialismus! fordert US-Friedensrat-Papier

Grundvoraussetzung dafür ist die Kenntnis der US-Strategie.  Der US-Friedensrat  liefert das Wissen um das  PNAC-Programm, das ein 'Neues Amerikanisches Jahrhundert'  unter der ausschließlichen  Oberherrschaft der Vereinigten Staaten  vorsieht. Dort gibt es keinen  Bezug oder gar  Rücksichtnahme auf freiheitliche Demokratie, auf Menschen-, Völker- oder Kriegsrecht.  Wir brauchen  das Wissen um diese  US-Strategie, wir müssen die Handschrift des PNAC  entziffern und ihre kriegerische  Konspiration mit der NATO anprangern. (siehe Blogeintrag vom 13. 08.13)

Der US- oder NATO-Imperialismus ist, wie im US-Friedensratpapier  vom 20. März 2013 vermerkt,  nicht von bestimmten Personen abhängt.   Menschen gestalten zwar  die  Politik und führen sie durch.  Sie folgen dabei aber  Motiven, die systemisch bedingt sind. Gedungenes Personal ist austauschbar. Die systematischen Mechanismen sind es vor allem, die eine bestimmte Politik  geradezu  zu erzwingen scheinen.

Wer  zum Kapitalismus ja sagt, darf sich über über die Monster nicht wundern, die er am Ende gebiert.

Der Faschismus ist  eine Variante spätimperialistischer Herrschaftsformen. Er ist kein rein deutsches oder italienisches Phänomen, er ist  nicht zeitlich begrenzt.

Das Kapital muss sich bei Strafe des eigenen Untergangs, die Welt unterzuordnen suchen, wie schon Karl  Marx in seinem  inzwischen zum UNESCO-WELTKULTURERBE erklärten  dreibändigen KAPITAL herausgearbeitet hat. Auf dem Weg zu Maximalprofiten geht es buchstäblich über Leichen, kein Verbrechen,  zudem es nicht  bereit wäre.

Das Kapital ist ein gesellschaftliches Verhältnis. Es strebt nach höchster Rentabilität. Menschen sind dabei zunehmend im Wege. Besser also, wir stellen uns auf die Hinterbeine und tun uns mit unseresgleichen zusammen, ganz wie ehedem erprobt.

Es gibt trotz der Umstände, unter denen das Kapital regiert, immer wieder Menschen, die sich den systemischen Scheinzwängen verweigern. Sie besinnen sich, manchmal spät, manchmal früh, auf ihr wahres Menschsein, auf Ethik, auf Mitgefühl, auf Verantwortungsbewusstsein gegenüber ihren Mitmenschen und sie handeln gegen die ihnen  auferlegten  Zwänge.

Ob ein Mordachai  Vanunu,  ob Bradley Manning, Julian Assange oder  Edward Snowden, ob die US- amerikanischen "Veterans For Peace" oder die israelischen Offiziere, die finden, es sei an der Zeit 'das Schweigen zu brechen' oder ob jüngst der deutsche  Oberstleutnant Klever, der aus Gewissensgründen  in Bezug  auf Afghanistan, den Gehorsam verweigerte, diese Menschen sind die Helden der Gegenwart. Sie können der Vernunft und der Menschlichkeit wieder Geltung verschaffen.

Begreifen wir, was gespielt wird. Entlarven wir die  Betrugsmanöver.  Das Lügengespinst zu entwirren, wie es Literaturnobelpreisträger  Harold Pinter nannte, das ist vornehmste Aufgabe von Intellektuellen, von Menschen, die sich das Denken nicht abgewöhnen lassen. Der Zusammenschluss mit Gleichgesinnten folgt dann als logische Konsequenz im eigenen, wohlverstandenen Überlebensinteresse.

FACTS on SYRIA: There is absolutely no evidence or confirmation that the Assad government carried out the alleged chemical attack.

WAR ALERT: Syria in danger of U.S. bombing

John Kerry has just made an ominous announcement that the U.S. intends to take "action" against Syria, and that Syria will be "held accountable." Talk of a chemical weapons attack in Syria is filling the airwaves. The U.S. is blaming the Assad government for it and openly talking of direct military intervention.
We, as the antiwar movement, have a duty to denounce any military action against Syria by the United States.
We must make clear that we will not be tricked into another war designed to make profits for the Wall Street military contractors and oil profiteers. Such a war will take thousands of innocent lives. There is no justification for such a criminal act.
The billions of dollars that such a war would cost should be spent on education, schools, healthcare, and other basic societal needs. The fact that another foreign war is being considered, at a time that food stamps are being cut, record numbers of homes are being foreclosed, and schools are being shut down and privatized in the name of a "budget crisis", is outrageous. Austerity is continuing in the U.S. and public sector workers' jobs are being eliminated. Basic infrastructure within the U.S. is crumbling. Bridges are insecure. Water is not being properly purified.
A new war will be disastrous for people of the Middle East, the U.S., and the entire world. According to a Reuters poll, 89% of the population is opposed to U.S. support for Syrian opposition.


  • There is absolutely no evidence or confirmation that the Assad government carried out the alleged chemical attack.
  • United Nations weapons inspectors are in Syria at the direct REQUEST of the Syrian government to prove that they have not used chemical weapons. The attack took place a mere ten miles away from the inspection team, on the very day they arrived.
  • Carla Del Ponte, a United Nations Human Rights investigator, has stated that the Syrian government has not used chemical weapons but the rebels have.
  • In May, 12 members of the Syrian rebel forces were arrested in Turkey. The rebels possessed 4.5 pounds of Sarin, the neurotoxin gas alleged to have been used in the recent attack.
  • In January, the "Daily Mail", a prominent British newspaper, reported that the Syrian rebels were planning a chemical attack which they would blame on the Syrian government in order to justify U.S. intervention. The report was based on leaked emails from military contractors.
  • The Syrian rebels are receiving direct weapons and funding from the United States, despite their record of atrocities including rape, murder, and torture. The U.N. has reported that they are actively recruiting young children, in addition to other violations of international law.
  • The Assad government has fully cooperated with the weapons inspection teams.
  • Members of the United Nations inspection team have openly stated their doubts about the chemical attack. Dr. Ake Sellstrom, the leader of the team, called the reports of the alleged attack "suspicious".
  • Reports on the attack are extremely inconsistent. Some reports said over 1,300 were killed. Other reports have said less than 200. Still other reports say over 350. The numbers are unclear and totally unsubstantiated.
  • The report being circulated by "Doctors Without Borders" is not based on their own information, but based on reports they received from a Syrian rebel group by their own admission.
  • Videos of the alleged attack were posted on the internet by allies of the Syrian rebels, BEFORE the attack took place.
  • The credibility of the video of the alleged chemical attack is being widely questioned by chemical weapons experts. The victims are not displaying the proper symptoms of having been struck by a Sarin nerve gas. The people shown treating them are not wearing proper equipment.
  • The U.S. is currently urging the U.N. weapons inspection team to halt its work. The U.N. weapons inspectors insist that they must be allowed to continue their investigations and to determine actual facts.
Despite all of this confusion and inconsistency in the claims about this alleged attack, the U.S. government, along with its corporate allies in Britain and France are openly pushing for an attack on Syria.

We have seen all this before:

  • The Spanish-American War was justified with an alleged attack on the U.S.S. Maine. In reality, the ship was sunk by an internal explosion.
  • The U.S. entrance into World War I was justified with the "Zimmerman Telegram", claiming Germans were plotting to invade the U.S. with Mexico. The telegram was later proven to be a fraud.
  • The Vietnam War was justified with the "Gulf of Tonkin"incident claiming Vietnam had attacked a U.S. ship. It was later proved that the alleged attack never actually took place.
  • In 1983, the U.S. invasion of Grenada was based on allegations that the government was planning to murder U.S. medical students. This was proven to be complete fiction.
  • In 1989, the U.S. overthrow of the government of Panama was based on false allegations about drugs and attacks on U.S. troops.
  • The U.S./NATO bombing of Yugoslavia was justified with reports of with unsubstantiated reports of genocide in Serbia. A great number of these reports have been totally discredited.
  • The Gulf War of 1991 was justified with false reports of Iraqi War crimes in Kuwait. The "babies thrown from incubators" stories that filled the TV news, were proven to be totally false.
  • In 1991, the U.S. used satellite photos to claim that Iraq was amassing soldiers to invade Saudi Arabia. The photos were proven later to have been complete forgeries.
  • The U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan was justified in the name of fighting a "war on terror" after Sept.11. None of the people who allegedly carried out the 9/11 attacks had any connections with Afghanistan or its government.
  • The U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003 was based on reports of "weapons of mass destruction" and "chemical and biological weapons." After the U.S. invaded, killing thousands of innocent people, it was proven that Iraq never had any such weapons.
  • The U.S. intervention in Libya was justified with claims of genocide and rape. Now that the Libyan government has been overthrown and thousands innocent Libyans killed, many of these reports have also been thoroughly discredited.

Emergency actions will take place at Federal Buildings around the country, and in Times Square in New York City in the event of such an attack. Be in the streets. Demand an end to U.S. support for the Syrian rebels.
The International Action Center urges united actions of antiwar, community and progressive forces to organize for anti-war people's assemblies, rallies, and protests against another war!
