Unwarranted attacks against countries we are not at war with are acts of war

On September 1st, 1939, Adolf Hitler ordered the invasion of Poland. Two days later, Britain and France declared war against Germany.

On December 7, 1942, Japan attacked Pearl Harbour and US was at war with Japan.

Now lets look at the rationale. The United States of America has been invading and attacking countries that are not at war with the United States of America and, morever, countries like the United Kingdom have supported such attacks and invasions. We cannot possibly criticise others when we are doing exactly the same. Bombing the Syrian Army is an act of war very much like the invasion of Poland and the attack against Pearl Harbour were acts of war.

Now, Syria has the upper hand and should the Russian Federation start a Nuclear War in retaliation such retaliation will be totally justified. We cannot go on supporting or justifying acts of war like the invasion of Iraq or Libya.

The Organisation of the United Nations created in 1945, by the end of World War Two, was supposed to be the channel to deal with crisis after crisis but the Organisation of the United Nations has not been fit for purpose.

Unilateral actions like the bombing of Syrian military bases are acts of war. Whatever happens in Syria, no country has the right to attack Syria merely because somebody doesn't like what is happening in Syria.

Syria is a sovereign country. Syria is suffering from a civil war aggravated by the actions of Islamic Extremists that have spread across Asia Minor and the Middle East. When the United States via unilateral action destroyed the Iraqi government and generated a state of lawlessness in Iraq, the United States promoted the rise of Islamic Extremists that could act at will since both the Iraqi Army and the Iraqi Police that kept extremists at bay were no longer around.

It is lamentable that the governments of two supposed democratic countries can possibly engage or justify or promote the kind of attack perpetrated by the United States.

Such action was wrong and will be followed by repercussions. When we talk about Islamic State and about the actions that there carrying out not just in the Middle East and Asia Minor but also in Africa, Europe and the USA, undoubtedly their source of inspiration is not the Quran but US Foreign Policy.
