Stop the War Coalition Condemns Biden’s Airstrikes on Syria
WASHINGTON - Stop the War Coalition condemns the airstrikes launched by President Biden on Syria. There is no justification for further intervention in the Middle East. The US says that the attack, which has led to multiple deaths, was aimed at Iranian backed groups operating in Syria and Iraq. It will only exacerbate existing tensions in the region.
The role of the US in Iraq has been catastrophic for the people of that country and the whole Middle East. The US still has 2,500 troops in a country they have devastated since they invaded in 2003. Biden is following in the footsteps of his predecessors despite all evidence that military interventions do nothing but create destruction and misery and the conditions for future wars.
Stop the War Convenor, Lindsey German, said:
"It's a disgrace that President Biden managed just 35 days before bombing the Middle East. He becomes the latest in a long line of US Presidents to use treat the Middle East as a bombing ground. Decades of US intervention in the region are cast iron proof that bombing raids do nothing to bring about peace."
