Groups Launch "People's Petition for an Iraq Peace Plan"


Democracy Now!

Anti-war groups in the United States are announcing a campaign today to build support for a peaceful exit strategy from Iraq. We speak with the primary author of the "People's Petition for an Iraq Peace Plan," longtime activist Tom Hayden.

On Monday, the Washington Post reported that the Bush administration is significantly lowering expectations of what can be achieved in Iraq. Officials are now saying the U.S. can no longer expect to see a model new democracy, a self-supporting oil industry or a society in which the majority of people are free from serious security or economic challenges. Many blame the continuing violence and lack of infrastructure in Iraq on the U.S. occupation itself.

Today, anti-war groups in the United States are releasing a People's Petition for an Iraq Peace Process. Peace Action and Progressive Democrats of America are inviting other organizations and individuals to join their call for U.S. military withdrawal from Iraq and the appointment of a peace envoy to broker a political settlement.

Tom Hayden, the primary author of the petition. He is a former California State Senator and longtime antiwar activist.

this makes to much sense...and would of course be labeled as showing weakness... you have to convince people this is strength...a resolve to clean up the mess that we made

I agree. Sadly though, it seems to be the role of the average American to just make messes...and then want to "get ON with my life." The "bleeder" of our counrty is setting his example
for all the world to see.
