Global Economic Boycott of all U.S. Brands, Imports and Exports.
By Lloyd Hart
If George Bush launches this illegal war against the people of Iraq the Global Peace Movement must impose a global economic boycott of all U.S. brand name products as well as all the raw resources that the United States steals from the so-called developing nations. The Global Peace Movement must enforce this boycott of the United States through absolute resistance through nonviolent civil disobedience. The United States must not be allowed to launch a new era of fascism upon the world.
If United States will no longer negotiate then the world must say "No!" to the United States and George Bush at every level including at the one level that will make the American public realize Global Public Opinion, that being America's complete dependence upon the rest of the world for the maintenance of the U.S. economy. The American public can no longer be allowed to sit in a wealthy complacency and resided over American Imperial imposed poverty of the so-called developing world. America must be taught a lesson, a lesson of interdependence, a lesson of the sanctity of all life on this planet and not just the sanctity lives of Americans.
If George Bush follows through with his ultimatum this week he will have launched America's own downfall. The world reaction will be the destruction of the U.S. economy which will not be able to survive no matter how much Arab oil U.S. and British oil companies privatize, no matter how much the U.S. military spreads itself over the globe to a enforce America's continued economic piracy that from its very beginning has been subsidized by massive crimes against humanity, genocide, slavery and the destruction of the global environment.
The resistance to the colonization of the Arab oil states alone will cost America tens of thousands of its youth and the destruction of the oil fields George Bush wishes to privatize. The resistance throughout the developed world to all things American will render American dollar to its weakest level in its entire history and the American public to its worst economic condition since the Great Depression. At home and abroad Americans will live in terrible insecurity. A quick victory in Iraq will not cause any success in reparing America's credibility abroad but only deepen global public opinion against the cowardice and the imperialism deeply entrenched in the U.S. economy. If George Bush thinks he can roll back the ballot box revolutions that taking place in the so-called developing world he is not done his arithmetic. 4.5 billion people have begun to stand up against their U.S. maintained poverty and U.S. does not have enough convetional, biological, chemical and nuclear-weapons to be able to defeat that many people. So in the end, those that did not study history are indeed doomed to repeat it as George Bush has decided to take the historical role of Emperor Nero.
