NO MORE WAR ON IRAQ!


By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 16 June 2014

Protest Obama when he speaks at the Democratic Party Fundraiser.

Tuesday, June 17th - 5:30pm

Gothem Hall. 1356 Broadway. (35 & 36th Sts) New York City

Bring your signs and banners.

A U.S. aircraft carrier, the HSS George HW Bush, is in place in the Persian Gulf as part of possible strike force on Iraq.   The Obama administration said Friday it is considering all options except troops deployed in Iraq at this time; most significantly, airstrikes. 
The U.S. has been overtly trying to control Iraq since 1990, and is responsible for uncounted deaths from bombs, sanctions, occupation, and destruction of the environment by the use of depleted uranium and other toxic weapons.

The current problem is NOT that the U.S. withdrew forces in 2012, but that it invaded twice, in 1990 and 2003, and carried on a 20+ year war of sanctions and occupation.

The instability the U.S. created opened the way for Islamic fundamentalism that was not in Iraq before 2003.  Sectarian fighting was the direct result of the U.S. occupation and particularly the 2006 "surge" led by General Petraeus, heavily arming the Sunni "Awakening" against Shiite militias.
No parties in this fight; the "insurgents," the Maliki government--paid for by the U.S.--or the U.S. itself, has "right" on its side.

We in the U.S. need to make a statement to the world by opposing any U.S. intervention or military attacks in Iraq.  We can make a difference in how people see what's going on by exposing and standing against the lies and crimes of the U.S. government in Iraq, led by Bush first, and now by Obama.
 
Sponsors in formation:  Brooklyn for Peace, Peace Action, United National Antiwar Committee,
Veterans for Peace, World Can't Wait

Join in the protest Tuesday where together we can make further plans.
