No U.S. Bombs on Syria!

We received the following from RefuseFascism-LA:

Drive Out the Trump-Pence Fascist Regime!
Protest Nation-Wide Friday April 7

On Thursday, April 6, Trump launched 59 Tomahawk Cruise Missiles against Syria. Trump claims he dropped these bombs because of the "beautiful babies" who were gassed, reportedly by the Assad regime. While that was certainly a crime against humanity, what about the beautiful babies Trump has dropped drones on? What about the beautiful babies blown to pieces by U.S. in Iraq? What about the beautiful babies in Iran who he seems to be sending a gangster threat to through this bombing?
What about the beautiful babies who are born FEMALE all over the planet whose lives are in danger because of Trump's Global Gag rule gutting abortion access and whom regards as pieces of meat? What about all the babies who are born Black in the USA -- the boys have a 1 in 3 chance of prison or jail and Trump wants to ramp up "law and order" brutality? What about the beautiful babies whose parents are being torn from them and deported to Mexico and elsewhere? What about the beautiful babies who are Muslim?
What about ALL THE BABIES all over the planet whose future is imperiled by the Trump-Pence Regime's climate change denial and attacks on science?FACT: Trump doesn't care about Syrian babies. He's a fascist thug who has promised "America First" fire-power and terror - including a new nuclear arms race - on the people of the world.
His bombs are not "humanitarian." His bombs will make things WORSE for the people of Syria and the people of the world.In the Name of Humanity - we must say:

NO! NO! NO! No Bombing Syria!
Drive Out the Trump-Pence Fascist Regime!

Trump Doesn't Give a Damn About Children and Babies
Donald Trump now cares about "innocent children, innocent babies"? The same Donald Trump who's ripped innocent children and babies from their immigrant parents' arms when ICE agents snatch and deport them? The same Donald Trump who's condemned innocent refugee children and babies to a living hell by trying to block them from entering the U.S.? He says the horrific pictures of the children in Syria killed by gas moved him, but where was his concern when a photo showed the body of a young refugee boy washed up on the beaches of the Mediterranean? The same Donald Trump who is creating a climate of terror and violence against Muslims, parents as well as innocent children and babies? What a sick, putrid lie!
But that's what this fascist liar came up with to justify seizing the moment and acting the "strong man" to launch a massive cruise missile assault on a Syrian military base: the U.S. government was supposedly outraged by the Syrian government's vile attack on April 4 against a town controlled by anti-Assad forces, reportedly with chemical weapons including the nerve gas sarin. More than 80 people were killed.
It could well be true that the reactionary Assad regime attacked people with chemical weapons. This would be a monstrous crime -- as is any use of weapons of mass destruction and killing of civilians. But the U.S. imperialists make Assad look like a petty street thug. The U.S. is the only country who has ever dropped nukes -- instantly incinerating more than150,000 people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The U.S. massively burned Vietnamese people to death with napalm. And Trump's own secretary of defense James Mattis ordered the use of white phosphorous -- a chemical weapon which gets so hot it melts people's skin and eyes -- during the 2004 U.S. assault on Fallujah, in Iraq.
Just in the last month the U.S. imperialists have murdered hundreds of innocent civilians -- including children and babies -- in Iraq and Syria. And while the Trump/Pence regime is crying crocodile tears about babies in Syria, they are preparing to escalate their support for Saudi Arabia's barbaric air war and blockade of Yemen, which has pushed some 14 million people to the brink of starvation.
So the U.S. rulers have no goddamn right to even open their mouths -- let alone launch military attacks. They need to shut the fuck up about mass murder and weapons of mass destruction!
These imperialists don't give a damn about women, children, babies -- any human being. They're fighting for reactionary imperialist interests: namely to maintain their domination of the Middle East, which has been a seven-decade horror for the hundreds of millions who live there. This is why on the same day Trump launched the missiles, the bloodthirsty Hillary Clinton -- the system's so-called "alternative" to Trump -- called for military attacks against Syria.
We don't know all the facts of what Assad may or may not have done, or what the Trump/Pence regime's next moves are. What we can know is that absolutely nothing good for the people anywhere will come from U.S. aggression. Just look at the last 15 years -- U.S. wars, invasions, occupations, and attacks in the region have resulted in unimaginable suffering for millions. The U.S. rulers do not have one iota of genuine concern for people's lives -- or about the use of barbaric weapons!
The U.S. actions are not in the interests of the people, around the world and in the U.S. itself. People need to condemn and actively oppose this aggression!
