The World Council of left-wing elitist, no heavenly or earthly use Churches pontificates

Earth shattering news: the World Council of Churches calls for peace in South Asia and blames the lack thereof on the USA:

South Asia has become a hot bed of the war on terror and a victim of the strategic interests of major power blocs keeping the region in constant turmoil and uncertainty. The nature of its volatility and that of the conflicts has been redefined by the US-led war on terror, wherein the rulers of the region have joined together as partners.

Although the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) is engaged in counter terrorism in Afghanistan, the overwhelming presence and reliance on 52,000-strong foreign forces in Afghanistan has created more animosity among the local people as well as in neighbouring Pakistan. This situation creates an atmosphere ripe for extremist groups to exploit the religious sentiments of ordinary people and involve them in committing more violence. Today, Afghanistan is plagued by a new insurgency and a deep humanitarian crisis prevails in the country. This warrants a situation where we must step forward with assistance to strengthen areas of governance, rule of law, democratic institutions and reconstruction of the country.

Naturally, the WCC:

Calls for the withdrawal of U.S.-led international combat troops from Afghanistan and appeals to the international community to ensure that the resultant power vacuum may be filled by a UN-sponsored peacekeeping force with Asian forces as major players, which will help the country’s transition towards stability;

Since no-one is quite as villainous as the US, when we get to specifics others are merely urged, appealed to and subject to expressions. However, it’s good to know the WCC has the solution for Afghanistan: a UN peacekeeping force – just like in Rwanda, no doubt.

The only real surprise here is that the WCC didn’t somehow manage to blame Israel for everything.
