It is well known that the endless U.S. war on terror was overtly launched following the mass murders of September 11, 2001 and the linked anthrax attacks.   The invasion of Afghanistan and the Patriot Act were immediately justified by those insider murders, and subsequently the wars against Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc.  So too the terrorizing of the American people with constant fear-mongering about imminent Islamic terrorist attacks from abroad that never came.

Criminals for Peace By William T. Hathaway

9 July 2012

How do we defuse an aggressive culture? How do we end an endless war?

A new group of war resisters, deserters, and peace activists from the USA, Europe, Iraq, and Afghanistan offers a variety of answers to these conundrum questions. In opposing militarism we’ve moved beyond demonstrations and petitions into direct action, flouting the government’s laws and impeding its ability to kill our fellow human beings. As criminals for peace, we’re defying the Patriot Act and working underground in secret cells to undermine the US military empire.
