U.S. .- Pérez Esquivel criticizes Obama to promote "state terrorism" to defend U.S. interests

MADRID, 10 May. Argentina's Adolfo Perez Esquivel, Nobel Peace Prize in 1980, sent a letter to U.S. President, Barack Obama, which launches harsh criticism to the decisions taken after receiving the award in 2009, to promote the "State terrorism" to defend the political interests of his country, citing the death of Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.

Pérez Esquivel says that far from promoting justice in the world, Obama has "increased hatred and betrayed the principles adopted in the election campaign" as it was to end the "war" in Afghanistan and Iraq and close the prisons at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib. "Instead, you decide to start another war against Libya, supported by NATO and the shameful United Nations resolution, when the highest body, dwarfed and without thought of their own, has lost its way and is subject to the whims and interests of dominant powers, "he said.

"How can you talk about peace if you do not want to meet anything but the interests of your country? How can you talk of human rights and dignity of people when the violas permanently and block those who do not share your ideology and must endure your abuse? "asks the activist. Pérez Esquivel believes that this situation has led Bush to the "labyrinth of fear and domination, ignoring international treaties, covenants and protocols, and the pair signed transgress again and again." "You think you have the power that can do everything and that the world is at the feet of America," he adds.

"Peace is not cheap, it is built and that is what you are missing boy, courage to take the historical responsibility to your people and humanity," he said. In the letter, Perez Esquivel expressed its "concern and outrage at the death and destruction sown in various countries" and "complacency" of Obama "on behalf of an alleged justice" to announce the death of Bin Laden.

"They did not seek to stop him and try him for crimes allegedly committed, resulting in greater doubt. The objective was to kill him," she complained. Clarifies that no attempt to "justify" the crimes allegedly committed by Bin Laden and his organization, but refuses to have used their search for the events of September 11, 2001 to "declare war that the military industrial complex needs to place its products of death.

" "I am against all terrorism, both of these armed groups, including the state terrorism that your country holds in various parts of the world by supporting dictators, imposing military bases and armed intervention, exercising violence to keep the terror on the axis of world power, "he said.

Pérez Esquivel concludes the letter urging Obama to be more "consistent" between what he says and what it does, considering that "the only way not to lose our way." "The Nobel Peace Prize is a tool to serve people and not for personal vanity," he said.
