U.S. hands off Iraq, Syria and Yemen! Will the Pentagon attack Iran?

After frame-up victims Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were executed in 1953, French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre wrote that the capitalist United States was “sick with rabies.” 

Seven decades later, Wall Street’s Big Oil empire is even more rabid and bloodthirsty. Using U.S.-supplied bombs and shells, the Zionist regime occupying Palestine has killed 30,000 people in Gaza. Behind the fascist Benjamin Netanyahu is Genocide Joe Biden.

In less than a month, the Pentagon has attacked Iraq, Syria, and Yemen, killing dozens with bombs and missiles. Over 106 million people live in these three sovereign countries.

Twenty-one years after the Second Gulf War, U.S. troops are still in Iraq despite the country’s parliament demanding that they leave. The U.S. occupies oil fields in Syria and steals the petroleum. 

Beginning in 2014, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates — both vassal states of Big Oil — invaded Yemen, killing 377,000 people before being beaten back. Meanwhile, Yemen was blockaded by the U.S. Navy as its children starved. 

Now, the U.S. and Britain are bombing Yemen because the country has closed the Red Sea to ships owned by or going to apartheid “Israel.” Yemen’s people, led by the Ansarallah movement, are doing so in righteous solidarity with Gaza.

In the last week, the Biden administration has struck Iraq and Syria over 75 times. A Feb. 7 attack killed two commanders of a resistance group in Baghdad. Iraqis responded by chanting, “America is the devil.”

The White House’s excuse for these devilish attacks was a drone that hit a U.S. base in Jordan near the Syrian border on Jan. 28. Three Black GIs from Georgia were killed.

As with over 7,000 Black GIs killed in the dirty war against Vietnam and Laos, it’s the Pentagon that has the blood of these three soldiers on its hands.

Demonizing the oppressed

The wealthy and powerful always slander freedom fighters. The U.S. State Department kept Nelson Mandela on its terrorist list until he was 89 years old. 

The response of the Zionist state to the International Court of Justice chastising its crimes in Gaza was to attack the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. Netanyahu’s regime claimed that a dozen of the UNRWA’s 13,000 employees took part in the Oct. 7 Al- Aqsa Flood offensive.

While the capitalist media gave wall-to-wall coverage to this allegation, it’s been almost silent about the 154 UNRWA employees killed by Israel.

That one-out-of-a-thousand UNRWA employees supposedly participated in this uprising was enough for the United States and eight other capitalist countries to cut off funding. Endangered are the UNRWA’s 706 schools with over 500,000 students and 140 health facilities.

In 2022, the U.S. contribution towards these absolutely essential activities was $344 million. The U.S. Senate voted on Feb. 4 to give 40 times as much — $14 billion — to the Israeli military to kill more Palestinian children.

Continual racist poison is necessary for this slaughter. Fox News and Tucker Carlson are not the only sources for a sewer of Islamophobia.

New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman has likened resistance fighters in Palestine and Lebanon to insects. Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting has rightfully compared Friedman’s words with Nazi descriptions of Jewish people.

The Nazis used insecticide to kill millions in the gas chambers. The U.S.-supplied white phosphorus bombs that Israel drops on Gaza are not any more humane.

Is Iran or Korea next?

Biden’s bombings of Iraq, Syria, and Yemen don’t satisfy everyone in the military-industrial-complex. They want to attack Iran, a country of nearly 90 million people.

Forty-five years ago, the Iranian people overthrew the U.S. puppet called the Shah. His CIA-trained torturers in the SAVAK secret police were hunted down and given justice. 

Even the Pentagon’s defeat by the Vietnamese people may not have affected Wall Street as much as the Iranian Revolution did.

The real Dr. Evil — David Rockefeller of the Chase Manhattan Bank, now JP Morgan Chase, with assets of $3.9 trillion — welcomed the exiled Shah to the U.S.

For if the Shah could be overthrown, why not the kings, emirs and other U.S. stooges in the Arabian peninsula? The supremacy of the U.S. dollar as world money rests upon them, particularly the Saudi monarchy, using greenbacks.

For many in the Pentagon, the way out of their quagmire in Western Asia is to attack Iran. Or will the next target be the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (called “North Korea” in the media)?

Meanwhile, the Pentagon is continuing its “pivot to Asia,” which is aimed at the People’s Republic of China. And the U.S. is conducting a full-scale war against the Russian Federation in Ukraine.

These bloody wars will continue no matter who wins the presidential election until the people stop them.
