Why revolutionaries must declare war on the United States

by Alan Becker Saturday, Sep. 15, 2001 at 2:29 AM

Originally, I thought of writing a long well written fancy essay. But what I have to say is simple, straight to the point, and derives from common sense which are deeply felt sentiments by all true revolutionaries.


We all know what happened in the U.S. is bad.

We all know that the U.S. does this to third world people every day and at a much larger scale, which is virtually ignored by the corporate media.

We know that the U.S. is perhaps planning a terrorist attack on Afghanistan, Iraq or Iran and will murder thousands of innocent civilians as it always does. And we must not allow this to happen.

We know the role of the U.S. corporate media is basically propaganda, for ruling elite interests.

We know that this is all a far right wing campaign aimed against the world anti-capitalist movement. And we must not allow them to distract us, to the contrary, we must intensify the movement just as they have done.

If there is any declaration of war, it must be done by the world's people against the world's oppressor, the United States government and its ruling elites, who laugh and profit from our misery.

All true radicals must get onto this right away.

To those right wing agents pretending to be one of us on indymedia, stop trying so hard, we are not stupid. Your victimization is hypocritical and your calls for revenge not warranted.

If this is too much for some people, then you are only surrendering to the enemy with your weakness.

Analyze, study, understand, and organize, just as those resisting in war torn countries are doing.

The current U.S. empire is falling apart, this spells opportunity for those who want to overthrow it and replace it with socialism or anarcho-syndicalism. Use your heads as serious organizations have done so.

And last but not least, as we all know what happened was bad, do not assist the corporate media and the right wing campaign in distracting the movement. Remain calm and focused.

These are just a few reasons, and there are many more, why revolutionaries must declare war on the United States.
