The citizens of the United States of America are approaching a time of
critical decision. On their decision, in November, this year, may depend
the future happiness of many millions, not alone American, but of many
other countries. One would have thought that this decision would not be
difficult to make, that the choice was surely obvious to all who
treasure peace and right relationship.
However, it appears that there are those who think otherwise, who
reserve for themselves the right to invade other countries on the
pretext that they might be plotting harm for them. Such pre-emptive
action, one would have assumed, was long ago abandoned by modern,
civilized states, and relegated to man’s illegal past.
Not so, sadly, we are assured. The present American administration, far
from showing remorse for their unjust and cruel invasion of Iraq,
proudly assert, if re-elected, their firm resolve to continue their
programme of pillage in their ‘war on terror’.
To fight a ‘war on terror’ is to fight a phantom, a useless, costly and
dangerous exercise. Terror is the Hydra, a many-headed monster: each
head severed, as Hercules discovered, is replaced by two. This US
administration, in its arrogance and ignorance, has fallen blindly into
the trap. Those who suffer are the American people, their victims, and
the world as a whole.
There is but one way to deal with terror, to end, forever, this canker
in our midst: to seek its cause.
There are, of course, several causes of terrorism, but above all in
importance is the unbalanced distribution of the world’s resources. This
creates the dangerous gulf between the nations which drives men to use
terror to realize their dreams. They are desperate men, who feel they
have nothing to lose. There is an immense, untapped army of such
desperate people ready to die, if necessary, for the justice they long
for which, rightly, they see as theirs.
No ‘war on terror’ can defeat such an army. No arrogant posturing can
drive them away from the bastions of the Western world.
No nation, however strong, can by itself defeat terrorism. It is born of
the injustice which disfigures this world.
Only when men learn to share will we see the end of terrorism. Only
through sharing can the goal of justice and freedom be realized. Our
appeal to you, citizens of the great and blessed United States of
America, is to think carefully, and from the heart, as is your wont,
when you deliver your vote. Cast your vote for peace, justice and the
rule of Law.
