CRAIG ROSEBRAUGH, FORMER EARTH LIBERATION FRONT SPOKESPERSON, RELEASES NEW WEBSITE AGAINST WAR IN IRAQ; CRITICAL OF U.S. ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT
PORTLAND, OR – Former Earth Liberation Front spokesperson Craig Rosebraugh released his new website today that is against the war in Iraq, yet critical of the anti-war movement in the United States. Located at http://www.pentagonlies.com
, the website contains a number of essays written by Rosebraugh including “Operation Iraqi Occupation,” “A Message to the U.S. Anti-War Movement,” “On Political Violence,” “A Message to U.S. Troops,” and much more. The site also includes a critical analysis of the U.S. government’s anti-terrorism campaign still being waged in Afghanistan.
“The goal of this website,” Rosebraugh stated, “is to educate the public on the real reasons for the war in Iraq while simultaneously stressing the need for a revolutionary movement within the United States.” According to Rosebraugh, the Bush administration manufactured this conflict not to protect the American public or liberate the Iraqi people, but rather to benefit U.S. corporations that have a vested interest in the natural resources and eventual rebuilding and ruling of Iraq.
“The real victims here are the supposed beneficiaries, the Iraqi people, who are being massacred in Baghdad and other locations from the U.S. bombing campaign,” Rosebraugh proclaimed.
Pentagonlies.com also displays Rosebraugh’s essay heavily critiquing the current anti-war movement in the United States. Calling the state sanctioned protest tactics ineffective, Rosebraugh writes, “The only possibility of stopping this current military action is to engage in strategies and tactics which severely disrupt the war machine, the U.S. economy, and the overall functioning of U.S. society – particularly how it relates to consumerism and the economy.” He goes on to provide seven controversial suggestions, largely methods of direct action, that he feels could actually stop the war in Iraq.
