Kucinich: A Vote For The Appropriations Bill Is A Vote In Support Of The War In Iraq


From the office of Dennis Kucinich

WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 21) - Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) gave the following speech on the floor of the House of Representatives today:

"Four years ago this week, in violation of international law, standing upon a mountain of lies, the United States went to war against the people of Iraq.

"The United States now has a moral responsibility for the deaths of perhaps as many as one million innocent Iraqis, responsibility for the destruction of Iraq and responsibility for the theft of billions in Iraq oil assets. Those who told lies to take us into war should be held accountable under the U.S. Constitution and at the International Criminal Court.

"Instead of true accountability on the war, the President and the Vice President could get over $100 billion to keep the war going through the end of their term. More war, more civilian deaths, more soldiers killed and maimed. Less money for housing, for health care, for education, for seniors as we borrow money from Beijing to fight a war in Baghdad.

"Instead of accountability, the appropriations bill will mandate the privatization of six trillion in Iraqi oil assets and provide money which can be used to attack Iran to try to grab another seven trillion in Iranian oil assets for the oil companies.

"Support the troops. Stop the war. End the occupation. Support HR 1234."
