No US Intervention in Iraq

NO MORE U.S. WAR ON IRAQ

UNITY STATEMENT & CALL FOR ACTION FROM UNAC

 

Again and again, the U.S. government chooses the disaster of war that creates a never-ending cycle of tragedy.  Today’s escalating crisis in Iraq is a direct result of the illegal U.S.-led invasion and occupation of that country.  The U.S. government used the false pretext of eliminating “weapons of mass destruction,” to mask a grab for power and oil.  The result was the brutal murder of more than a million Iraqis, the deaths of thousands of U.S. soldiers, the creation of millions of refugees, over a trillion dollars spent, and the destabilization of an entire region. Today, the U.S. government considers sending more ground troops, renewed air strikes, drone attacks, Special Ops forces, privatized troops, arms shipments, and other covert operations, while it is hard-pressed to identify its allies and its military and political aims.  We say No!  Military intervention has not worked to bring peace; the bitter cycle must end.

 

We call for:

  • Immediate withdrawal of all U.S. military and non-military forces from Iraq
  • No military intervention – troops, bombs, drones, covert operations, arms
  • Money for Jobs and Education, Not for War and Incarceration
  • Say No to War in Iraq actions – vigils, demonstrations, rallies, forums, media, petitions, lobbying President Obama and Congress
  • Emergency day-after actions if the US starts air strikes
