Iraq: The Logic of Withdrawal

Why the US should pull out now:

1. THE U.S. MILITARY HAS NO RIGHT TO BE IN IRAQ IN THE FIRST PLACE

2. THE UNITED STATES IS NOT BRINGING DEMOCRACY TO IRAQ.

3. THE UNITED STATES IS NOT MAKING THE WORLD A SAFER PLACE BY OCCUPYING IRAQ.

4. THE UNITED STATES IS NOT CONFRONTING TERRORISM BY STAYING IN IRAQ.

5. THE UNITED STATES IS NOT PREVENTING CIVIL WAR IN IRAQ.

6. THE UNITED STATES IS NOT HONORING THOSE WHO DIED BY CONTINUING THE CONFLICT.

7. THE UNITED STATES IS NOT REBUILDING IRAQ.

8. THE UNITED STATES IS NOT FULFILLING ITS OBLIGATION TO THE IRAQI PEOPLE FOR THE HARM AND SUFFERING IT HAS CAUSED.
