Our government asks us to remember the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 when we are screened and groped at the airport. They ask us to remember 9/11 when we follow procedure to get a bank account. They want us to remember 9/11 when they tell us they need to use warrantless searches and wiretaps and spy on our phone calls for “safety”. Today they ask us to forget 9/11 as they attempt to arm and support Al-Qaeda1 in Syria. This is not something we at Ary Global Foreign Policy Journal can do. We can not support dishonoring the sovereignty of another nation to aid a force singing praises of Osama bin Laden2 and slaughtering Christians3.
Remember this: While shuffling the names of men to blow up every morning on “Terror Tuesday”4 5 like a mad man, Barack Obama has a bust6 of Martin Luther King JR in his office watching what has been called the fruition of his dream and legacy.
We may only have days, or less before our country bombs Syria. Here at this journal, we have been concerned about this statement by General Wesley Clark for some time, and it is even more urgent now:
Contact your representatives in congress and demand they vote no on authorization for war.
