The European Communist Initiative condemns and denounces the new missile strikes by the USA, France and Britain against Syria, with the support of the EU and NATO. These developments in Syria bring even closer the risk of a generalized imperialist war. The pretexts of chemical weapons use have been used previously with the imperialist interventions in Iraq, Libya and Syria and neither convince nor can deceive the peoples who have acquired experience at this point.
The position of the EU which is acting jointly with the USA is once again a dangerous one. The statements made by President Tusk of the European Council that the EU supports the attack, labelling it as ‘justice’, are inflammatory and intolerable. The EU once again is bombing, is participating actively in changes of borders, partitioning of states, the uprooting of refugees for whom it sheds hypocritical crocodile tears. The bourgeois governments of Europe are participants and co-responsible, providing bases, facilities while backing up the hypocritical pretexts of the USA – NATO – EU.
The people must rise up against this new imperialist crime and strengthen their struggle against imperialist war, against the USA, NATO, the EU and their allies, to stop every facilitation of imperialist interventions, to strengthen solidarity and the joint struggle of the peoples against their real enemy, capitalism and the monopolies.
