USA Practices Terrorism, Indian Marxists Say
New Delhi, May 3 -- The Communist Party of India (Marxist) said Tuesday that the United States should abandon the use of military force and state terrorism so that the worldwide struggle against terrorism will be successful.
State terrorism and fundamentalist terrorism feed each other, the CPI(M) Political Bureau said in a press release commenting on the death of Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden at the hands of a U.S. military commando on Sunday in Pakistan.
According to the text, the methods used by Washington in its so-called global war on terror have only worsened the situation.
Under the pretext of fighting Al Qaeda, the United States has devastated Afghanistan and Iraq, and tens of thousands of people have been killed in those wars, the document noted.
The CPI(M) also stated that Bin Laden's death, although it represents a setback for the terrorist organization, will not bring the end of extremist violence instigated by fundamentalism.
The recent military intervention in Libya and the continuation of the war in Afghanistan prove the United States has not learned the lessons of the past, the press release states.
