to the war against Iraq
- No to the war against Iraq
The anguish and the impotence are seized upon me again. I can not leave the opportunity to
express my deep worry concerning to the unfolding of men and armaments carried out in USA
and Great Britain in order to attack Iraq. It also makes sad the loss of answer of the
remainder of the other Western countries (although some of them timidly oppose to the
possibility of war) by stopping this brutal aggression that has been preparing, day by
day, like a great media show what will become worse, no doubt, the pain and the necessity
of people from Iraq, who are already enough hit by the blockade and the use of atomic
weapons in the previous conflict (uranium of low tenor in the missiles).
I believe that it is absolutely unacceptable that in the new millennium the most civilized
and richest countries of the world wanted to solve their differences against the poorest
countries appealing to the violence and to the war, omitting the Foundation Letter of the
United Nations and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Besides, it is intolerable for any sensibility that the USA give to themselves the right
of exercising "preventive attacks," against any country, when and where they
thinks it is necessary. Better say, attacks against any countries, if not against those
which cannot defend themselves.Since it results evident that the USA will never attack
France or Japan based on so trivial arguments.
The excuse of that Iraq possesses armament of massive destruction (that nobody could not
have confirmed) is not signifcant, for there are other countries which possess it, no
doubts, and they have not received any pression, as, for example, USA, Russia, North
Korea, France, Great Britain, Pakistan or India. On the other hand, USA count on political
and diplomatic mechanisms to solve the international problems without using any tank.
I am conscious that great intellectual groups throughout the world must be mobilized and
have to make the possible to stop this criminal madness. But, also, I am conscious of the
lacking of answer of networking, of the mail - artists net, or our collective group of
creators at distance (some individual intents confirm what I have said). Parodyng Epicuro:
what is mail art for, if no to the service of men?
