unequivocally the unilateral US military attack on Iraq
by John Chung
Friday):DAPSY condemns unequivocally the
unilateral US military attack on Iraq.
The continued defiance of the US and its allies of world opinion and global
protests and condemnations reveal its sheer arrogance and gross disrespect
for international law.
A very dangerous precedent has been set by the decision of the US to press
ahead with the bombing of Iraq despite international pleas for peace and
non-military means of conflict resolution.
Such unauthorised use of force, undertaken without the mandate of the UN
Security Council, is deeply regrettable and doubly unfortunate as it has
resulted in the abrogation of the rightful role of the UN as the global
peacekeeping institution and elevated the US to the unlawful position of a
self-proclaimed authority to police the world according to its whims and
fancies without the need to submit to the demands of the international body.
Such a scenario can only spell an uncertain and bleak future as
it will possibly lead to a more divided world when every effort should be
taken to preserve international peace and work towards a more united global
DAPSY urges the US and its allies to stop the attack on Iraq immediately and
heed world opinion for a peaceful non-military approach to disarm Iraq.
John Chung, DAPSY International Secretary
