Stop the U.S. from doing what it's threatening! U.S. bombs, military aid in support its Maliki government will surely make things worse. This is the message World Can't Wait is distributing:

NO MORE War on Iraq!

NYC ProtestU.S. bombings, economic strangulation through sanctions, and occupation over 23 years are responsible for uncounted deaths – possibly over 1 million – leaving a third of the population displaced, in need of emergency aid or dead.

The current problem is NOT that the U.S. finally withdrew military forces in 2012, but its illegitimate invasions in 1991 and 2003. The USA's occupation of Iraq was conducted in a lawless way, destroying their education, legal, medical, water, sewage, security and electrical systems. When Iraqis rebelled, Bush's “surge” in 2007 handed out arms to Sunni and Shia, supporting death squads on both sides to set them against each other.

The U.S. withdrawal in 2012 left what had been a relatively secular country split along sectarian lines, with a weak puppet government, and a huge opening for Islamic fundamentalists to push for religious rule.

No party in this fight, not Islamic militias, not the Maliki government — paid for by the U.S. — and certainly not the war machine of the U.S. itself, has "right" on its side. Tomahawk missiles fired from US carriers in the Persian Gulf, drone strikes and bombs can only bring unimaginable suffering to the Iraqi people.

We in the U.S. must speak out against any U.S. attacks on Iraq. By exposing and standing against the lies and crimes of our government, whether by Bush or Obama, we can make a difference in how people see what's going on.
