Refugees are created by the United States empire

The thousands of refugees from Syria are being added to those already in Europe from Iraq and Libya.

The thousands of refugees from Syria are being added to those already in Europe from Iraq and Libya.

All these refugees are fleeing their homes due to military operations initiated by the U.S. empire to replace the rulers of these targeted nations (Iraq, Libya and Syria) which were relatively stable until the U.S. intervened.

The U.S. empire and its allies are responsible for creating these refugees in areas which do not pose any threat to the U.S. The U.S. interventions in these areas is to advance the U.S. empire’s aspirations to global hegemony.

Many governments support these U.S. actions. It is time that we the people, we the 99 per cent-ers of the world, must put pressure on our governments to hold the U.S. empire accountable for its military interventions to advance its goal of global hegemony.

One method of achieving this is to demand that the U.S. pay for the expenses generated in Europe due to the refugees. This action would be taken in the UN, which is supposed to prevent wars but is subservient to U.S. influence.

Once this principle is established by this precedent, the cost of replacing the targeted nations’ destroyed infrastructure could be included in future assessments of the cost of aggression. War would then become too expensive to initiate. I invite we, the peoples of the world, to unite in common causes for our mutual benefit. Each dollar spent in unprovoked military action is a dollar less for development in our own countries and in the Third World.
