An American anti-war activist says the majority of U.S. citizens are against their country’s military interventions across the globe or war threats against other countries including Iran.
“The majority of the American people are not supporters of rash and violent military actions abroad. Poll after poll demonstrate that Americans were in opposition to NATO’s and the U.S.’s military action against Libya, against the current war in Afghanistan which is now of course well into its eleventh year,” says Rick Rozoff, manager of Stop NATO in an exclusive interview with Press TV’s U.S. desk on Saturday.
“There is no consensus amongst the American population for threats against Iran, economic or military, and that is why the voice of the American people needs to be heard and for demonstrations like the ones that are being held preemptively,” Rozoff continued.
“There is a general dissatisfaction amongst the populous in the United States to saber-rattling, brinkmanship and other forms of military threats and aggression abroad.”
An American anti-war activist says the bellicose attitude among U.S. civilian and military leaders including President Barack Obama is the main threat to world peace.
Obama “ironically on the occasion of receiving the Noble Peace Prize in December of 2009 boasted of being the commander-in-chief of a country at war in two countries. He was alluding to Afghanistan and Iraq at the time,” said Rick Rozoff, Manager of Stop NATO in an exclusive interview with Press TV’s U.S. desk on Saturday.
He added that Obama “also bragged about the United States being, and I quote him: the world’s sole military superpower, and it is that attitude amongst civilian and military leaders in the United States that is a threat to the world.”
This attitude “is adversely affecting Americans themselves, tens of thousands of whom are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and other psychiatric problems as the result of the wars abroad but also tens of thousands of whom have come back maimed for life as a result of that,” Rozoff concluded.
