Prime Minister Trudeau has pledged to stop Canadian bombing in Syria, but the bombing continues without any end in sight. Trudeau is also planning on increasing the number of boots on the ground. The Canadian Peace Alliance (CPA) is calling on all its members and supporters to oppose Canada’s continued military presence in Syria.
Sign the petition today to bring Canadian troops and bombers back from Syria.
Regardless of what one thinks of either the Syrian government or of the opposition forces, we know from recent experience that:
– NATO and its allies have and will continue to lie about the use of Weapons of Mass Destruction to justify “humanitarian” intervention.
– NATO-led attacks, justified as a “responsibility to protect” (R2P) civilians, have resulted in tens of thousands of civilian deaths. The death toll from military attacks in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya can be counted in the hundreds of thousands.
– The geopolitical calculations of the NATO powers, and not the interests of ordinary people, are always the main considerations for any military intervention.
During the Vietnam War, US officials described a situation where it became necessary to “destroy the village in order to save it.” As with all the recent invocations of R2P, it appears that the goal of NATO is to bomb civilians in order to save them. We must, therefore, stand in opposition to the actions of the aggressor states in NATO and call on the government of Canada to keep its hands off Syria.
