Letters

Israel started conflict I’ve been reading that the war on Lebanon was caused by Hizbollah entering Israel and capturing two Israeli soldiers. Israel called this common occurrence an "act of war" (it isn’t) and has used this to ignore criticisms for its violations of international law and ironically, the Nuremberg rulings.

Statement against the US-Israeli War on Lebanon

05 August 2006
Israel’s war in Lebanon is the latest stage in the imperialist offensive mounted by the United States and its allies since 11 September 2001. The conquest of Iraq was intended to unleash a process of "regime change" that would remove the obstacles to US domination of the Middle East. Instead, thanks to the resistance in Iraq, the Pentagon finds itself bogged down in a guerrilla war that it cannot win.
