Western Nuclear War Threatens Humanity: Bolivia’s Evo Morales

“War aids capitalism, those who support capitalism support war, that is, the philosophy of death and destruction,” Morales said.

President Evo Morales of Bolivia warned Tuesday that humanity was “at risk of disappearing in a nuclear holocaust,” as tensions mount worldwide after U.S. military attacks in Syria and Afghanistan.

“Nuclear power in the United States and Western countries are getting us dangerously closer to a nuclear conflagration,” adding that the capitalist crisis leads the imperialists to “new wars that are in reality military interventions over natural resources, over the control of sea routes or regions with geopolitical, energy, trade or financial value.”

“War aids capitalism, those who support capitalism support war, that is, the philosophy of death and destruction,” Morales said.

He recalled the U.S. nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan that left hundreds of thousands dead.

In his opinion, the new U.S. President Donald Trump, “gave the Pentagon all power,” with his proposal to increase the military budget by US$54 billion.

“The Empire is not governed by a man but by the sum of its financial, industrial and technological powers,” Morales explained.

He called on the whole world “to join forces to repudiate energetically any war, any military intervention that does not seek to guarantee human rights, that is not in defense of democracy, and only seeks natural resources.”
