Howie Hawkins on War & Peace
Immediate and unconditional withdrawal from Iraq
Q: Should the US support the creation of a Palestinian state?
Q: Should the US withdraw its troops from Iraq?
Q: Discuss your proposals for an exit strategy in Iraq.
A: Immediate and unconditional withdrawal. The real US military mission was to establish military bases and control the oil, not WMDs, terrorism, and democracy as the politicians spun it. The mission was imperialistic. It was wrong and it should stop.

End the War in Iraq
End the War in Iraq. End the US commitment to decades of war trying to impose a military and corporate occupation of the Middle East and its oil.
Stop all illegal US-led wars and covert action to overthrow governments (Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Haiti, Venezuela, etc.).
