Kevin Zeese on War & Peace

 


Cardin voted against war, then became wrong, wrong, wrong

ZEESE: Mr. Cardin, you voted 14 times for the war: for war funding, against an exit strategy, and you even voted on a resolution saying Iraq was a moral war.

CARDIN: I voted against the war four years ago and I've been a critic of the president ever since. Yes, I'm going to support the appropriations bill so our troops are safe, with the body armor and equipment they need. .Would you have voted for war four years ago?

STEELE: Yes, I would have authorized the use of force, to deal with the terror that was there.

ZEESE: You guys are both wrong on the war. We've got to get out of Iraq rapidly & responsibly, or we're going to get out in chaos. Mr. Cardin, you have not done much on this issue. After your first vote, you've been wrong, wrong, wrong. You voted against an exit strategy. You voted to stay the course. You voted for $320 billion for permanent bases.

CARDIN: I voted against the permanent bases. Check the record.

ZEESE: I did check the record. You voted for it [in a package bill].

Rapid, responsible withdrawal from Iraq

The principal focus will be ending the Iraq War and occupation. I favor a rapid, responsible withdrawal from Iraq - this would include setting a date of withdrawal so Iraqis know they will be getting their country back - this will result in weakening the resistance to our occupation. U.S. troops should be replaced by an international peace keeping force preferably from neutral countries, from the Arab world. There should be internationally supervised elections.

Iraq War is costing us billions of dollars weekly

The Iraq War is costing us billions of dollars weekly, costing the lives of U.S. soldiers and civilians as well as the lives of Iraqis. We are not bringing stability to Iraq, but instead our presence adds to the instability.

Impeachment inquiry about misleading country into Iraq War

I favor an impeachment inquiry of President Bush and Vice President Cheney. If President Bush and Vice President Cheney misled the country in order to invade Iraq they should be impeached for doing so - there is no greater crime a president can commit then lying to the nation in order to start a war. Holding him personally responsible for these actions is important in order to prevent future presidents from behaving similarly.

End the Iraq War and occupation

[My campaign's] principal focus will be ending the Iraq War and occupation. I currently work on this issue with Democracy Rising where I am the director of the program. The Iraq War is costing us billions of dollars weekly, costing the lives of U.S. soldiers and civilians as well as the lives of Iraqis. We are not bringing stability to Iraq, but instead our presence adds to the instability. I favor a rapid, responsible withdrawal from Iraq - this would include setting a date of withdrawal so Iraqis know they will be getting their country back - this will result in weakening the resistence to our occupation. U.S. troops should be replaced by an international peace keeping force preferably from neutral countries, from the Arab world. There should be internationally supervised elections and the United States should provide humanitarian aid and support for rebuilding Iraq.
