In January 2003, just weeks before our illegal invasion, Nelson Mandela made the following statement: “… All Bush wants is Iraqi oil. Why [is the U.S.] not seeking to confiscate weapons of mass destruction from [its] ally Israel?... What I am condemning is that one power, with a president who has no foresight, who cannot think properly, is now wanting to plunge the world into a holocaust."

Well, as the banner on the aircraft carrier read, Mission Accomplished…..for the holocaust of ethnic cleansing in Palestine has extended to Iraq, COMPLIMENTS of our illegal and brutal occupation.

-Were there weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? NO!
-Were there ties between Saddam Hussein and Al-Qaeda? NO!
-Did the Iraqi people ever pose a threat to us? NO!
-Have Sunni and Shia been killing each other for thousands of years? NO!

How do we know our "leaders" are lying to us? Their lips are moving. In Iraq, as in Latin America in the 1980’s, the bloodshed began when American CIA-operations were set in motion.

In reality, while there are over 2.5 million Iraqi refugees living mainly in Syria and Jordan, there is NO mass bloodshed and torture in these neighboring countries. The genocide just happens to be occurring inside Iraq, where American CIA, Israeli Mossad, and the most powerful military in the world are running operations. It’s simple: Invasion and occupation are illegal, and there must be one consistent standard for justice and the law.

No timetables—just IMMEDIATE WITHDRAWAL.
No conditions—just IMMEDIATE WITHDRAWAL.
No more stoplossing soldiers—just IMMEDIATE WITHDRAWAL.
Iraq needs only one thing from America—just IMMEDIATE WITHDRAWAL.

Worldwide, we the peacemakers are the majority. Whatever obstacles we encounter in the struggle, they are nothing compared to what the Iraqi people are facing everyday. We are here. We have to push forward. And we cannot stop until our government’s crimes do.
