Obama, Cameron discuss war and state repression following Charlie Hebdo attack

By Chris Marsden and Jerry White, WSWS.org 16/1/2015
British Prime Minister David Cameron is meeting with US President Barack Obama in the White House today to discuss the escalation of military operations by the two countries in the Middle East, further NATO provocations against Russia and, in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo attack in France, greater domestic repression in the name of the “war on terror.”

On the eve of their meeting, Obama and Cameron issued a joint statement published by the Rupert Murdoch-owned Times in London. “By confronting the terrorists who threaten us, standing together against Russia’s aggressive acts and continuing our efforts to advance our economic growth, we will continue to advance the security and prosperity that our people deserve,” the two declared.

The two heads of state—whose countries have tortured in violation of national and international laws, launched wars based on lies and deployed police state measures against their own populations—wrote, “We won’t let the voice of freedom be muzzled.” They added that “our ability to defend our freedoms is rooted in our economic strength and the values that we cherish—freedom of expression, the rule of law and strong democratic institutions".
