The US/NATO threatens to launch missiles against regime

targets in Syria. The revolutionaries on the ground have

never asked for US/NATO to intervene militarily. They
have asked for weapons to defeat Assad and received no
heavy weapons. The US now admits that this is because
it has no confdence it can prevent the Islamist elements
from taking control of the war against Assad. Assads use
of chemical weapons has forced the US to acknowledge
that he will never make peace and is giving impetus to the
Islamist opposition. The prospects oI a negotiated deal have
vanished. So now US/NATO and Russia will to do a deal to
remove Assad and replace him with a friendly regime that
will attempt to put a halt to the Syrian Revolution and the
wider Arab Revolution. We must oppose US/NATO attacks
on any targets in Syria, just as we oppose Zionist attacks.
We must also oppose the Russian and Chinese imperialists
backing oI the Assad regime, as well as their proxy Iran.
Obama plays the same old humanitarian game the US
has played over and over again as an excuse to invade or
bomb a country which is escaping outside the bounds of the
imperialist control. The vanguard workers internationally
know, from previous experience with Obamas humanitarian
aid in Haiti and with US aid in Somalia, Bosnia, Serbia,
Chile, Vietnam and Palestine that it is the very population
the US leaders hypocritically claim to want to protect that
ultimately pay the bloody price with thousands of dead
civilians. The aid takes the form of bombed out communities
shot up by trigger happy cowboys running up the Pentagons
expenditures for their sponsors on the corporate side of the
military industrial complex. Lets blow some shit up is
always a good option when the economy is in the tank. At
least the big munitions producers get their cut of the blood
money, their stocks soar, backs are slapped and careers are
Conscious workers know that the US imperialism has more
blood on its hands than Basher Al-Assad could bathe himself
with in three lifetimes. Hiroshima/Nagasaki, Central and
South America, the Korean War, Vietnam, Panama, Haiti,
Iraq and AIghanistan and many more; Ior over a century
US imperialism has left a trail of bloody war crimes. This
is not the result of bad or misguided policies by this or that
administration, but is part and parcel of the highest stage of
monopoly capitalism and its world wide quest Ior elusive
Workers dont need the peace of the capitalists and the
pacifsts-a peace only Iound in the grave yard--The end
oI imperialist war and the causes Ior war require that the
working class consciously acknowledges the existing class
war and organizes to defeat the class enemy, the 0.01% and
their lackeys. For workers to live capitalism must die!
There can be no peace so long as capitalism exists. To
end imperialist war once and Ior all requires more than
morally outraged peace demonstrations. Peace requires
the organization of the working class at the head of all
the oppressed for all-out class struggle against the main
enemy, which is our own ruling class, and their system of
To win, an anti-war movement needs to be based on
independent working class actions. In the US, this requires
an absolute political break from the Democrats, who have
proven over and over again they are the willing butchers for
American imperialism. The Democratic Party has moved
Iar to the right over recent decades; has historically served
as the graveyard of class and social struggles, and they
will continue to serve that role. Workers should organize
labor political strikes against any military intervention. Not
only does this mean the hot-cargoing of military goods,
particularly by longshoremen, railroad workers, merchant
seamen among others but workers should organize material
military aid to Syrian working class revolutionary fghters.
United labor actions should be organized internationally
from the semi-colonial nations to the imperialist centers.
A general strike movement needs to be organized to bring
these war moves to an end and a fghting workers/labor party
built to organize such actions in opposition to the Democrat/
Republican parties of war. US enlisted ranks need to be
broken Irom the oIfcer corps and organize soldier and
enlisted ranks councils to oppose US imperialist actions.
Opposition to the war could be turned into a fght Ior social
justice, for jobs, healthcare, education and housing for all.
Carrying such a fght through to a victorious conclusion
requires the Iormation oI a workers government.
Workers should come to the defense of the Arab Revolution.
Labor in transport should help ensure that military goods
are commandeered and delivered to the Syrian working
class revolutionaries of the Local Coordinating Committees
(LCC) and militias, who are fghting the brutal Assad
regime. Organize workers international brigades to fght in
Syria alongside our class sisters and brothers! The Syrian
Revolution must not be broken by the imperialists! For
international labor solidarity! Workers of the world unite!
All imperialist powers hands off Syria! For a
workers victory against the regime!
For workers material aid to the revolution!
From Tunisia to Kuwait, victory to the Arab
For workers revolution across and a socialist
federation of the Middle East and North Africa!

What we Fight For
We ght to overthrow Capitalism
Historically, capitalism expanded world-wide to free much of
humanity from the bonds of feudal or tribal society, and developed
the economy, society and culture to a new higher level. But it could
only do this by exploiting the labour of the productive classes to make
its profts. To survive, capitalism became increasingly destructive oI
'nature and humanity. In the early 20th century it entered the epoch
of imperialism in which successive crises unleashed wars, revolutions
and counter-revolutions. Today we fght to end capitalism`s wars,
famine, oppression and injustice, by mobilising workers to overthrow
their own ruling classes and bring to an end the rotten, exploitative and
oppressive society that has exceeded its use-by date.
We ght for Socialism.
By the 20th century, capitalism had created the pre-conditions Ior
socialism a world-wide working class and modern industry capable
of meeting all our basic needs. The potential to eliminate poverty,
starvation, disease and war has long existed. The October Revolution
proved this to be true, bringing peace, bread and land to millions.
But it became the victim of the combined assault of imperialism and
Stalinism. AIter 1924 the USSR , along with its deIormed oIIspring
in Europe, degenerated back towards capitalism. In the absence oI a
workers political revolution, capitalism was restored between 1990 and
1992. Vietnam and China then Iollowed. In the 21st century only North
Korea survives as a degenerated workers state. We unconditionally
deIend the DPRK against capitalism and fght Ior political revolution
to overthrow the bureaucracy as part of a world socialist revolution.
We ght to defend Marxism
While the economic conditions for socialism exist today, standing
between the working class and socialism are political, social and
cultural barriers. They are the capitalist state and bourgeois ideology
and its agents. These agents claim that Marxism is dead and capitalism
need not be exploitative. We say that Marxism is a living science that
explains both capitalisms continued exploitation and its attempts to
hide class exploitation behind the appearance of individual freedom
and 'equality. It reveals how and why the reIormist, Stalinist and
centrist misleaders of the working class tie workers to bourgeois ideas
oI nationalism, racism, sexism and equality. Such Ialse belieIs will be
exploded when the struggle against the inequality, injustice, anarchy
and barbarism of capitalism in crisis, led by a revolutionary Marxist
party, produces a revolutionary class-consciousness.
We ght for a Revolutionary Party
The bourgeoisie and its agents condemn the Marxist party as totalitarian.
We say that without a democratic and a centrally organised party there
can be no revolution. We base our beliefs on the revolutionary tradition
of Bolshevism and Trotskyism. Such a party, armed with a transitional
program, Iorms a bridge that joins the daily fght to deIend all the
past and present gains won from capitalism to the victorious socialist
revolution. Defensive struggles for bourgeois rights and freedoms, for
decent wages and conditions, will link up the struggles of workers of
all nationalities, genders, ethnicities and sexual orientations, bringing
about movements for workers control, political strikes and the arming
of the working class, as necessary steps to workers power and the
smashing of the bourgeois state. Along the way, workers will learn that
each new step is one of many in a long march to revolutionize every
barrier put in the path to their victorious revolution.
We ght for Communism.
Communism stands for the creation of a classless, stateless society
beyond socialism that is capable of meeting all human needs. Against
the ruling class lies that capitalism can be made fair for all, that
nature can be conserved, that socialism and communism are dead,
we raise the red fag oI communism to keep alive the revolutionary
tradition oI the Communist ManiIesto oI 1848, the Bolshevik-led
October Revolution, the Third Communist International until 1924, and
the revolutionary Fourth International up to its collapse into centrism,
with the closing oI the International Center. We fght to build a new
Communist International, as a world party oI socialism capable oI
leading workers to a victorious struggle for socialism.
