Obama’s Strategy for Iraq: Escalation

With the Islamic State on the rise, and the ever pressing threat of U.S. attacks or invasion in the Middle East, the peace movement is demanding that President Obama come clean on his strategy for Iraq. While the President has recently claimed that he has “no complete Iraq strategy,” the administration is already deploying around 500 troops, and building a new military base, in addition to the over 3,100 US troops already stationed in Iraq. Meanwhile, war mongers in Congress are beating drums for full-on escalation.

It’s time for the international peace movement to re-activate and oppose continued U.S. military intervention in Iraq.

Read the recent analysis by Phyllis Bennis, former UFPJ Steering Committee Member and Director of the New Internationalism Project at the Institute for Policy Studies here: “Obama Does Have a Strategy in Iraq: Escalation.”

Please share this post and tell us what your group is doing to oppose U.S. military escalation in Iraq.

    It is my opinion that we are fighting a losing battle with most politicians. I have sent comments regarding my opposition to our war efforts to Blake Farenthold (sp) on several occasions and all he sends me is canned responses, which are probably written by some kid.

    I hope to see him face to face the next time he comes to Corpus Christi.

    He might feel compelled to respond to this 74 year old.

    P.S. Do you produce any material that I might send to him?
