These Deaths are Unacceptable

Already 25 American soldiers have been killed in Iraq in the first 6 days of May.

Further occupation related deaths in Iraq are unacceptable. Not one more American soldier ought to lose his or her life. Not one more Iraqi ought to lose his or her life.

The occupation is plainly unjustified by any real national security need. There is no legitimate justification for the continued militaristic occupation of Iraq. The continued presence of the US military is a destabilizing influence. The US presence is exacerbating sectarian tensions.

The Bush administration must be opposed from establishing an ability for international oil corporations to exploit and reap profits off of the oil that exists under (and "floats") the nation of Iraq.

No blood for oil. The US federal government has made the world less safe from the threat of terrorism.

I, as an American Citizen, will not stand for this any longer. Immediate de-escalation and withdraw are necessary. Reparations must be made to the Iraqi people for the devastation of their lives and livelihoods.

The Occupation of Iraq: Not In My Name!
