“Throughout the history of mankind there have been murderers and tyrants; and while it may seem momentarily that they have the upper hand, they have always fallen.” (Mahatma Gandhi)
The United States has discarded pretensions to international legality and decency, and embarked on a course of raw imperialism run amok.” (William Rockler, Nuremberg Tribunal prosecutor)
Going on 17 years since the US-led invasion of Iraq in March 2003.
This is an illegal war. The people of Iraq are calling for the withdrawal of US troops.
Syria, Massive popular support for President Al Assad
“Bring the Troops Home Now” is a strong yet ambiguous statement because it accepts the legitimacy of the Commander in Chief who has the authority to make that decision. And if that decision were taken it would be a historical landmark.
But we cannot depend on Donald Trump to take that decision.
The war is illegal and criminal.
Official White House statements and the media in chorus contend that US troops are in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria as part of an anti-terrorist project against ISIS-Daesh.
The ISIS is what the CIA calls an “an intelligence asset” which is recruited, trained and financed by the US and its allies.
Irrespective of the US Commander in Chief’s decision namely president Donald Trump, US and coalition troops stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan have a moral and legal obligation to “Abandon the Battlefield” and we must make that choice possible for individual servicemen and women currently in Iraq.
“Abandon the Battlefield” rejects the legitimacy of the Commander in Chief. It denies the Trump regime’s authority to conduct an illegal and criminal war on behalf of the American people.
What it says, is that “We the People Refuse to Fight” in a war which violates international law and the US Constitution.
The Iraq war is a criminal undertaking. It violates the Nuremberg Charter, the US constitution and the UN charter.
