The Independent Political Report gives us news of a recent anti-war protest in San Francisco in which the World Workers Party was involved. I’m grateful to any group or individual who takes part peacefully in an anti-war protest…
…but I just can’t get over this picture that was posted along with the article. It shows a pair of Workers World Party protesters carrying a sign that reads “U.S. Hands Off Iraq, Syria And Ukraine – Money For Human Needs, Not War!
I am 100 percent in support of the idea that money should be spent on basic human needs instead of on war.
I can’t stop asking this question, though: Just whose hands does the World Workers Party want on Iraq, Syria and Ukraine?
Are they okay with Iranian hands being on Iraq? Will they accept Russian hands on Ukraine? What about Al Quaida hands on Syria?
Is the World Workers Party only against American hands?
War is not the answer to the problems in these countries, but a solution won’t come simply from getting U.S. hands off either.
