Issue No. 2119

“The news that the US is now bombing Pakistan emphasises yet again the appalling dangers that have followed from the so-called ‘war on terror’.

“This is really an imperial assault on Middle Eastern countries from which the oil comes from that the US depends upon.

“It underlines the need for the Stop the War Coalition to intensify its efforts. This should be top of the issues raised by delegates and others at the Labour Party conference in Manchester to influence government policy.”
