Please - End the Iraq OCCUPATION -- it is NOT a War
Dear Code Pink,
Love the new campaign(s) but I take exception at the term Iraq WAR -- as Thom Hartmann and others (see Truthout.org and or Commondreams.org) are stressing, it is an OCCUPATION that we need to end. Bush is NOT a war president but an OCCUPATION president. He declared the war over weeks after the invasion. Where are the battles? Where are the armies? What there is is an insurgency because our presence creates turmoil.
Occupations can be declared over. Congress doesn't have to walk away from a war, merely say it is time to end the OCCUPATION.
The rest of the postcard is great. Let's prevent future wars. And let's create a true and lasting peace.
