Green Party on War & Peace

Party Platform


Diplomatic solution for Syria, not dismemberment of Syria

The U.S. is playing a deadly and cynical game at the Geneva II conference on Syria, sabotaging the talks in order to set the stage for more warfare and terror. In this sick equation, diplomatic failure is victory: "the U.S. moves closer to their real strategic objective--regime change or the dismemberment of the Syrian state."

The crisis created by the administration on the eve of the Geneva II conference to exclude Iranian participation only confirmed the duplicitous nature of the conference. While Iranian participation would not have guaranteed that a peaceful, durable resolution to the war in Syrian was achievable, the Obama administration demonstrated that it is not serious about seeking a diplomatic solution by excluding the only other force beside the Syrian government that actually has real influence on the ground in Syria.

Negotiate on Iranian nukes; but negotiate on US nukes too

President Obama didn't even give a nod to his rhetorical commitment to the global elimination of nuclear weapons ("perhaps not in my lifetime")--the rhetorical commitment that won him the Nobel Peace Prize. Instead, he focused exclusively on the danger of a prospective Iranian bomb. To his credit, Obama made clear that he would veto any legislation that would derail the current negotiations with Iran, stating: "For the sake of our national security, we must give diplomacy a chance to succeed." Entirely missing, however, was any mention of the dangers posed by U.S. nuclear weapons, the trillion dollar U.S. commitment to maintaining and modernizing its nuclear arsenal over the next three decades, and the recent record of U.S. non-cooperation with multiple efforts being made in international forums to stimulate progress on achieving and sustaining a world free of nuclear weapons.
