Statement of the Revolutionary Communist International Tendency, supported by the Internationalist Socialist League (ISL)
The threat of war is rising again in East Asia! The presence of tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers and modern weapons on the Korean Peninsula as well as the provocative military exercises by the U.S. and its allies close to North Korea, can easily lead to a military confrontation.
We have not the slightest political sympathy for the bureaucratic dictatorship of Kim Jong-Un in North Korea. But it is not North Korea that for decades stationed its army close to the U.S. and held military exercises, but vice versa. It is not North Korea, which has led war on American soil in 1950-53, but vice versa. It is not North Korea that has about 8,000 nuclear warheads ready for use and has already dropped nuclear bombs twice, but it is the USA. And it's not North Korea that began in the last decades numerous wars and invaded Vietnam, Grenada, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc., but the USA!
That is why we say: U.S. and allies - Hands off North Korea! Immediate withdrawal of all U.S. troops from East Asia!
The RCIT calls on all progressive organizations and individuals to enter the streets in the event of a war against North Korea and to organize spontaneous protest demonstrations.
