Multipolar World Against War (extended version)

Multipolar World Against War

An Urgent Call for a Multipolar Coalition for Peace

Our world stands at a critical and dangerous juncture. The destructive policy of unilateral military intervention and illegal regime change practiced by the United States and its allies has led to the possibility of a military confrontation between major world powers and nuclear-armed nations that could trigger a new World War.

This is an urgent call to all nations, organizations and individuals worldwide, to join together in forming a global coalition that seeks to avert disaster by strengthening Multipolar cooperation, peaceful diplomacy and international law, while categorically rejecting interventionism and unilateral aggression.

The world has arrived at this point because of reckless foreign policy , gross human rights violations and the wanton destruction of entire cultures. Since the end of the Cold War, the U.S.’s latest aggressive policy shift was enshrined in a PNAC (Project for a New American Century) document published in September 2000 entitled, “Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century,” where they revealingly determined that:

“…If an American peace is to be maintained and expanded, it must have a secure foundation on unquestioned U.S. military preeminence….”

Under the media guise of “The War on Terror“, “WMD’s“ or “Humanitarianism“, the U.S. (together with its allies) presently executes this overtly imperialist doctrine through the expansion of NATO, the launching of multiple wars for control of foreign resources, and the establishment of hundreds of military bases overseas. It overthrows non-­compliant heads­-of­-state through the use of unsanctioned military force or color revolutions. It contaminates entire regions with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.  It justifies the use of torture, electronic surveillance, killer drones, cyber warfare, and the rolling back of domestic civil liberties – while whistleblowers that expose these crimes are threatened and criminalized.

Even economic warfare in the form of sanctions, vulture capitalism, IMF-imposed austerity, secretly negotiated trade deals like TTIP, and financial manipulation is unleashed against its enemies – and even its allies – forcing them into submission.

Dangerous Flashpoints

Is the world safer? What are the results of these unilateral actions? The promises of increased democracy, national security and economic well-being from Western intervention has only left a deadly legacy of failed states and disastrous outcomes. Furthermore, this unilateral policy is now targeting Russia and China, exposing humanity to the risk of global thermonuclear war.

In East Asia, Washington has deemed China’s dynamic rise as a strategic threat to U.S. interests, and has responded militarily by agitating and encircling China, while inflaming territorial disputes with its neighbors. At the same time, neo-­liberal free ­trade agreements negotiated in secret like TPP are being implemented to counter China’s economic influence, while enabling corporations to keep workers exploited, environmental protections sidelined, and entire nations powerless.

Meanwhile, the U.S. and NATO are backing a corrupt regime with Nazi ties in Ukraine that they put into power through a violent coup. The regime’s repressive policies sparked a civil war that created more than a million refugees, prompting Crimean residents against the coup to rejoin Russia in a referendum. Though more than 90% of Crimeans voted in favor of reunification, the Western powers and the media accused Russia of interference, choosing to apply tough economic sanctions, and to station NATO military personnel and weapons directly on Russia’s borders. The West is even considering the European redeployment of nuclear weapons to “counter the Russian threat“. Does this make the world safer?

In Syria, the U.S./NATO/Gulf Coalition is illegally waging a dual campaign of fighting terrorism and regime change simultaneously, demanding that yet another elected head-­of-­state step down. However, this U.S.-­led Coalition is supporting extremist mercenaries with strong links to Al ­Qaeda and ISIS ­ whom they dub “the moderate opposition“ to bring down the Syrian government. So while they officially condemn terrorism and pledge to fight it, they continue to train, fund, arm, and support the very groups they say they are fighting.

Worse still, the U.S.-­led Coalition, ­illegally operating without a UN mandate and no permission from the Syrian government, ­is operating with a separate agenda in the same theater as the legally-­mandated Syria/Russia/Iran Coalition, the one overwhelmingly supported by the Syrian people who fear for their lives. Instead of joining forces against terrorism, the West is inflaming the crisis through belligerent rhetoric, dangerous provocations and the flagrant disregard of international law. Does this make the world safer?

Media as a Tool for War

The role of the media in promoting these wars and destructive policies cannot be overstated. Whether demonizing a leader, a religion, or an entire nation, – the Western media chooses to echo Western talking points to scare the public into supporting war, rather than reporting on the facts. Politically motivated criticism is used to discredit and undermine Russia and Syria for “actually“ fighting terrorism or legally defending their own borders. Dubious accusations are regularly leveled at Russia and its president without any evidence, while Western media outlets legitimize these often debunked claims – further distorting the reality. Thus, Russia is often portrayed as a threat equal to ISIS!

However, it must not be forgotten who demonized Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi, who actually created the chaos that engulfs Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria, Libya, Yemen, Syria, and Ukraine, and who continues to threaten other nations – including Russia, China and Iran. Against the backdrop of escalating ecological crises, extreme poverty and increasing social and religious tensions, this extremely dangerous foreign policy pursued by the West and its media is creating more terrorists, more victims, more refugees, more poverty and more destabilization – bringing the world ever closer to the brink of disaster.

There IS an Alternative

The time has come to counter this grave threat to humanity. Respect must be restored to the principles of sovereignty, self-determination and non-interventionism -­ and the adherence to international law must be paramount. Though most nations respect this, Russia and China are the major world powers that support the concept of Multipolarity, and act as a global counter­balance to Western hegemony. Whatever domestic issues they may have, their cooperative approach is supported by the majority of nations, by global alliances such as the Non­-Aligned Movement, the G77 or the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization), and by the Latin American alliances (UNASUR, ALBA and CELAC).

Moreover, these Multipolar nations are providing alternatives to Western-­controlled institutions and their neo­-colonial practices. Their multilateral institutions and development projects such as the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa), the AIIB, and the massive “New Silk Road“ Eurasian development project are rooted in non-interventionism and mutual respect. In sharp contrast to Western trade deals, bilateral cooperation with these Multipolar nations is increasingly producing win-win outcomes for many developed and developing nations in Africa, Latin America, Asia, and Europe. In total, the majority of the world’s nations support a Multipolar approach to global affairs based on the principles of the U.N. Charter and the Declaration of Human Rights, which is why the West wants to derail it – it’s a threat to their global hegemony.

Therefore, all those who seek peace – be it nations, organizations, movements or individuals from all across the political, economic, social and cultural spectrum ­ must stand together as one voice in support of Multipolarity. This voice must be amplified over the Western media spin by supporting truthful, Multipolar and independent media sources. This voice could be organized through major conferences into a coalition with initiatives, political positions, and a platform.

This Multipolar coalition should be mobilized into a force that can pressure the West into abandoning their destructive policies by directing their political and economic support toward nations that have pursued (or desire to pursue) a balanced policy of cooperation and diplomacy. Even as individuals, we can apply pressure by contacting government offices and media outlets en masse, altering our voting and spending habits to support proponents of Multipolarity, or finding creative ways to spread the word using art, music, film or literature. More than just a call for solidarity, this must be a political and grassroots force for positive change.

The Choice We All Face

Since the September 2015 U.N. General Assembly and the events that followed, two distinct forms of diplomacy have been on display for all to see, presenting the world with a choice: Do we want a Unipolar world in which Western wars dictate the world’s fate, or a Multipolar world where sovereign countries work together in an environment of peace, cooperation and mutual respect? It is clear that the global majority chooses the latter.

Therefore, WE, the global majority standing together in solidarity for peace through diplomacy, declare that:

We respect all nations‘ sovereignty and their right to self­-determination. We believe that the future of ANY country must be decided by the citizens of that country alone, free from all external threats and interference, and that multinational conflicts should be resolved through political processes and diplomatic negotiations.

We support all nations that exercise a cooperative, multilateral approach to global affairs. The counter­productive and dangerous policy of unilateral military intervention is a violation of international law, and must be universally condemned.

We support nations and multinational coalitions that work determinedly to stop terrorism. Nations that directly or indirectly participate in the training, arming, funding and support of terrorist-­linked extremist groups do so in violation of international law and must be condemned, and held accountable.

We condemn Western­-oriented media outlets that demonize leaders or entire nations and religions, blatantly misrepresent the facts, and consciously present a biased, one­-sided view of events. We applaud and strongly support global media that is fair and balanced, and that objectively reports on world events.

We commit to engage in, or support nonviolent efforts to promote global peace and tolerance for all peoples and all beliefs. Please sign, and/or widely disseminate this declaration and all like­-minded efforts.

Ray McGovern, Washington, D.C., USA
When the treaties comprising the Westfaelischer Friede were signed in 1648, I was just a young boy.  In due course, I learned that they brought unimaginable hope to Europe by ushering in a political order based on national sovereignty and non-aggression and ending the outrages of the Thirty Years’ War. Today’s war-hawks blithely predict, without any sense of history, another “30-years’ war.”  It is up to us to stop this madness before the nuclear genie gets out of the bottle and brings a violent end to our already dying planet.

Was hat die USA-Administration seit dem Ende des 2. Weltkriegs für Kriege und militärische Auseinandersetzungen provoziert? Die Militärs der USA sind weltweit friedensbedrohend; das zeigt sich überall dort, wo es um die Durchsetzung der Interessen der USA geht.

NATO never paid for its crimes. Its time to put an end to these criminals and all their mercenaries and puppet governments who have brought only chaos, poverty, disasters, sectarian wars in the arab homeland. NO TO WAR! Long live Socialism and Peace!

Dietrich Müller, Konstanz, Germany
Liebe Freundinnen, liebe Freunde, denen, die diesen Aufruf organisiert und formuliert, und jetzt unterzeichnet haben, meinen tief empfundenen Dank! Soweit etwas in dieser, unserer polaren Welt als wahr bezeichnet werden kann, gleicht das einem lupenreinem Diamanten im Gegensatz zu dem Schund, der uns sonst üblicherweise in Form von geschliffenen Glasperlen angedreht wird…  Und um das unterscheiden zu können, bedarf es eines klaren Bewusstseins – und vor allem der LIEBE!

Peter Silbereisen, Humorist, Wiesbaden, Germany

les peuples souverains doivent reprendre le contrôle de leur destin abandonné trop longtemps à leurs soi-disant représentants soumis à la caste mondiale des puissants qui prétendent diriger le monde en semant la peur et le chaos à travers le monde pour leur seul profit.

I fully support this call. It is the only way out of warlike and aggressive and totalitarian abuses of dominant nations.

Krieg bedeutet Leid und Tod für unendlich viele Menschen- Frieden heisst Weiterentwicklungs-Möglichkeit für alle Menschen.

Eine multipolare Welt garantiert auch dem kleinsten Staat in der Welt seine Souveränität wahrzunehmen, so wie das in der UNO-Charta verankert ist.

Willy Wahl, Zürich, Schweiz

Der Aufruf – oder Weckruf – ist begrüssenswert und in der brandgefährlichen Weltlage wichtig und soll um die Welt gehen. Dass er in 17 Sprachen übersetzt ist, finde ich vorbildlich!

Krieg ist ein schmutziges Geschäft, den Harold Pinter in seiner Nobelpreisrede einen «Akt der Barbarei» bezeichnet hat.

Leider hören wir am Stammtisch immer noch «Krieg hat es immer gegeben – Krieg wird es immer geben».

Darum plädiere ich für eine globale Volksaufklärung:
«Man hat ja noch niemals versucht, den Krieg ernsthaft zu bekämpfen. Man hat ja noch niemals alle Schulen und alle Kirchen, alle Kinos und alle Zeitungen für die Propaganda des Krieges gesperrt.
Man weiß also gar nicht, wie eine Generation aussähe, die in der Luft eines gesunden und kampfesfreudigen, aber kriegsablehnenden Pazifismus aufgewachsen ist. Das weiß man nicht.»
Kurt Tucholsky 1931

Heidi Foerster, Berlin

Die USA/Nato bereiten seit Obamas 2. Amtsperiode den Krieg gegen China vor. Zu diesem Zweck wurde Japans Neutralität auf Druck der USA aufgehoben, Südkorea wird funktionalisiert usw.usw. Deshalb ist diese Initiative äußerst wichtig und umfassend zu unterstützen.


Elkje Schneider, Frankfurt, Germany

Wir müssen uns einsetzen für eine solidarische und SOZIALE Gesellschaft. Solange die einen immer mehr haben und nicht mehr wissen wohin damit und die anderen – auch in diesem unserem Lande – täglich in ihrer Existenz bedroht sind, kann es keinen (sozialen!) Frieden geben.

DAHER: UMFAIRTEILEN JETZT!! Ein gutes Leben für alle, egal ob mit oder ohne (sozialversicherungspflichtig) bezahlte Erwerbsarbeit. Schluss mit Sozialleistungsabbau, Sanktionen und Schikanen. Ein Leben in Würde für alle!!


Frank Dorrel,  Publisher – ADDICTED To WAR – Associate Producer: PAYING THE PRICE FOR PEACE

I realize that I have listed many films here. There is no need to try to watch all of these films in a short period of time. But the films listed below basically spell out what I like to call: “The True Nature of U.S. Foreign Policy”. These films are the proof that the United States has killed as many as 20 million or more innocent people since the end of World War II – with many millions more being injured, losing their homes and having their way of life ruined.  This list is the best way I can think of to help educate yourself and others who might be interested in knowing about this. I believe that the Americans who have died in these wars, have died for lies coming from our government and our mainstream media, which are both owned by the same people who profit from these wars.

It is what I call: “The Big Lie”.  It is Orwellian and like The Matrix. I do not know what is actually going on now in Syria or Libya or The Ukraine, but one thing I do know is that we cannot trust that the United States will ever do the right thing when it comes to foreign policy. Whatever action this country takes is to benefit the corporations, the oil companies, the bankers and the war machine: also known as: The Military Industrial Complex. The United States is ADDICTED To WAR.

It is up to us to try to stop this horrible situation. There are more people now who do understand this to some degree than ever before in history. The films listed below and many books that have been written on this subject are a big reason why this is so. Not to mention the many anti-war/peace groups there are in this country. And the Internet is another big reason there is more awareness about this. In the alterative media, Democracy Now, hosted by Amy Goodman, is the most listened to/watched program in this country. You will hear more truth by listening to Democracy Now than anywhere else. To my knowledge, no one else has ever put together a list like this one. There are many other films like these that you can watch on-line. 

Thế giới đa cực chống chiến tranh

Lời kêu gọi khẩn cấp từ một Liên minh đa cực cho hòa bình. Thế giới chúng ta đang ở một bước ngoặt quan trọng và nguy hiểm. Các chính sách phá hoại sẽ can thiệp quân sự đơn phương và thay đổi chế độ bất hợp pháp. Hoa Kỳ và cái đồng minh sử dụng phương tiện truyền thông để can thiệp vào quân sự đơn phương làm thay đổi chế độ của các nước và nguy và sẽ dẫn đến khả năng cuộc đối đầu quân sự giữa các cường quốc thế giới và có thể xảy ra cuộc chiến tranh thế giới mới.

Bây giờ là thời điểm cấp bách để giải quyết mỗi đe dọa nghiêm trọng đến con người:

-Yêu câu Hoa Kỳ không can thiệp vai quyền tự quyết của mỗi người quốc gia.

-Tôn trọng các nguyên tắc về chủ quyền mỗi dân tộc

-Đặt việc chấp hành pháp luật quốc tế ưu tiên hàng đầu

Đây là cuộc gọi khẩn cấp tới các quốc gia, các tổ chức, các phong trào hòa bình trên thế giới cùng tham gia để xây dựng một liên minh toàn cầu sức mạnh nhằm ngăn chặn thảm họa có thể xảy ra. Bằng cách tăng cường sự hợp tác đa cực, thúc đẩy ngoại giao hòa bình, cải luật pháp quốc tế, cùng nhau chống lại chủ nghĩa Xâm luộc và bác bỏ những thái độ khiêu khích đơn phương

Chúng ta hợp tác cúng với Thế giới đơn cực, trong đó phương Tây quyết định số phận thế giới, hang hợp tác thành Thế giới đa cực trong đó có chủ quyền quốc gia, một môi trường hòa bình, một hợp tác hữu nghị vá tôn trọng lẫn nhau?

Điều rõ ràng, rằng Thế giới đa cực là sức mạnh tổng hợp mà chúng ta cần phải lựa chọn và hợp tác 

Chúng tôi hãy tham gia lời kêu gọi này bằng cách ký tên hoặc phổ biến các tuyên bó này đến tất cả mọi người bằng sự nổ lực của mình.

„KHÔNG đến chiến tranh … CÓ, đến một thế giới đa cực! „

(translation by Susann)
