U.S. Groups, Citizens Ask World: Help Us Resist U.S. Crimes

The following letter is being delivered to the New York U.N. consulate office of every nation on earth:

This year’s UN General Assembly comes at a critical moment for humanity – 3 minutes to midnight on the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock. Recognizing our country’s primary role in this crisis, 11,644 Americans and 46 U.S.-based organizations have thus far signed this “Appeal from the United States to the World: Help Us Resist U.S. Crimes,” which we are submitting to all the world’s governments. Please work with your colleagues at the General Assembly to respond to this appeal.

The appeal has been signed here: http://bit.ly/usappeal The first 11,644 individual signers and their comments are contained in a PDF document here: http://bit.ly/usappealsigners

Since the end of the Cold War, the United States of America has systematically violated the prohibition against the threat or use of force contained in the UN Charter and the Kellogg Briand Pact. It has carved out a regime of impunity for its crimes based on its UN Security Council veto, non-recognition of international courts and sophisticated “information warfare” that undermines the rule of law with political justifications for otherwise illegal threats and uses of force.

Former Nuremberg prosecutor Benjamin B. Ferencz has compared current U.S. policy to the illegal German “preemptive first strike” policy for which senior German officials were convicted of aggression at Nuremberg and sentenced to death by hanging.

In 2002, the late U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy described post-September 11th U.S. doctrine as “a call for 21st century American imperialism that no other nation can or should accept.” And yet the U.S. government has succeeded in assembling alliances and ad hoc “coalitions” to support threats and attacks on a series of targeted countries, while other countries have stood by silently or vacillated in their efforts to uphold international law. In effect, the U.S. has pursued a successful diplomatic policy of “divide and conquer” to neutralize global opposition to wars that have killed about 2 million people and plunged country after country into intractable chaos.

As representatives of civil society in the United States, the undersigned U.S. citizens and advocacy groups are sending this emergency appeal to our neighbors in our increasingly interconnected but threatened world. We ask you to stop providing military, diplomatic or political support for U.S. threats or uses of force; and to support new initiatives for multilateral cooperation and leadership, not dominated by the United States, to respond to aggression and settle international disputes peacefully as required by the UN Charter.

We pledge to support and cooperate with international efforts to stand up to and stop our country’s systematic aggression and other war crimes. We believe that a world united to uphold the UN Charter, the rule of international law and our common humanity can and must enforce U.S. compliance with the rule of law to bring lasting peace to the world we all share.<--break->

    Powerful, David; thank you.

    My latest contribution to explain, document, and prove all US current wars are started with lies known to be false as they were told, and the Orwellian unlawful: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2016/08/war-law-somehow-isnt-crystal-clear-letter-intent-oath-sworn-tax-paid-shouldnt-enforce-01-arrests-obvious-lie-started-illegal-wars-aggression-w.html

  • January 5, 2016 The Rule Of Law No Longer Exists In Western Civilization

    My work documenting how the law was lost began about a quarter of a century ago. A close friend and distinguished attorney, Dean Booth, first brought to my attention the erosion of the legal principles on which rests the rule of law in the United States.

  • Sep 5, 2016 9/11 Suspects: Rudy Giuliani

    Mayor Giuliani oversaw the illegal destruction of the 9/11 crime scene and is criminally liable for the deaths of hundreds of emergency workers for not passing on prior warnings about the collapses of the Twin Towers. It is no wonder, then, that the Fire Department of New York so passionately detest Giuliani for his actions in disgracing their fallen brothers and covering up the 9/11 crime.

    Countries need to stop assisting the US with FATCA!

  • How can we “support and cooperate with international efforts to stand up to and stop our country’s systematic aggression and other war crimes”, when we all must work — to survive, to purchase goods and services, to put food on the table and a roof overhead. In this process, each citizen will inevitably pay taxes to the U.S. Federal Gov’t,, and to thereby work against any effort to keep the beast in check.

    It is time for people of conscience, especially in the U.S., but all over the world, to begin the program of radical non-cooperation. My hunger strike starts this Sunday, September 11, outside the World Trade Center PATH station. I intend to remain there until the 9/11 myth has been thoroughly eviscerated.
