In recent months, there has been an increasing effort by governments (particularly the United States) in identifying and labeling terrorist organizations and individuals. It is both ironic and hypocritical for the United States government, an organization that has throughout it's history performed catastrophic atrocities against innocent people, to simultaneously label its enemies and dissidents as terrorists while refusing to discuss its own record of murder and destruction. It is also necessary to clarify that many of the individuals and groups that the U.S. government is labeling as terrorists are acting out of self defense against the United States policies which are directly threatening life on this planet. The US government and US corporations routinely perform terrorist actions both domestically, against people in the United States, and internationally against innocent peoples in sovereign nations. These acts are done primarily for imperialist reasons, to expand the empire or maintain its power, or to simply acquire further financial assets. The beneficiaries of such imperialist practices are rarely, if ever, poor whites or people of color but rather the wealthy elite that hide behind the mythical phenomenon of "promoting democracy", "maintaining freedom" and so on. If the goal of this "war on terrorism" is really to stop terrorism then it must begin by abolishing the largest terrorist threat in history, the United States government. US imperialism lies at the heart of social and political problems domestically in the US and throughout the world. Until US imperialism is destroyed, there cannot be real justice, a real democracy, or any resemblance of freedom for life on earth.
