Georgia Invasion DOES NOT Spark Massive Peace Protests -- Why Not?
Today, all peace groups and pro-democracy groups world-wide should be protesting against the brutal occupation and subjugation of Georgia. Any peace group or pro-democracy group which criticizes democracies must also be ready to criticize dictatorships.
Russia has invaded a sovereign country, murdering, raping, looting and burning. It has repeatedly broken it's own timetable to withdraw. All peace demonstrators should be in the streets in ALL MAJOR CAPITALS. Peace demonstrators by the millions should be protesting the barbaric invasion of Georgia by Russia.
Here is just a short list of the groups that claim to defend peace and/or democracy, but who have done or said little or nothing about the invasion of Georgia:
The United Nations Security Council, The United Nations Development Program, and many more;
Code Pink, the Carter Center, the Communist Party USA, the AFL-CIO, the National Organization of Women (NOW), the American Civil Liberties Union, and many more;
The Canadian Communist Party, the Marxist-Leninist Party of Canada, the New Democratic Party of Canada, The Canadian Human Rights Commissions, the Spartacus Tendency, The Canadian Union of Students, and many more;
Websites which are silent about the invasion: Dailykos, Raw Story, America Blog, Atrios, Juan Cole, Crooks and Liars, Firedoglake, Glenn Greenwald, Huffington Post, Iraq Casualty List, Needlenose, Open Left, Political Cortex, Political Wire, Sanctuary Square State, Talk Left, Talking Points Memo, James Wolcott, Dems and Allies, Kicking Ass (DNC), The Stakeholder (DCCC), Newshounds, Salon, and many more;
Individuals who are silent: Bill Ayers, Michael Moore, Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, and many more.
The absence of protest by these groups shows that they will shout their lungs out to defend communist causes (such as the disarming of America), but they keep quiet when democracy is threatened. They are not dedicated to freedom and democracy.
Notable groups which have spoken out clearly against the Georgia invasion:
The White House, US State Department, the US Department of Defense, NATO, Britain, France, Germany, Poland, The Ukraine, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Israel, Canada, Russian dissident groups, and many more;
Freedom House, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, openDemocracy, the American Red Cross, and many more;
Individuals who have spoken up: George Bush, John McCain, Stephen Harper, and many more.
