United States weapons are still killing Iraqis as the government that the U.S. 10-year-long occupation installed bombs the rebellious cities of Fallujah and Ramadi. According to supporters of Iraqi sovereignty around the world, the regime of Nouri al-Maliki has exaggerated the presence of al-Qaida-like groups to justify its assault on the population....
An increase in deaths in Iraq from internal fighting and bombing doubled in 2013 from a year earlier, reaching levels unseen since 2008. In early January, the Nouri al-Maliki regime launched an attack on demonstrators in Falluja and Ramadi, using the alleged presence of al-Qaida as a pretext and asking for U.S. military aid....

To date, no official has been brought to justice for war crimes, crimes against humanity and for waging a war of aggression, the supreme international crime. We have to change that equation. All those who are responsible for the invasion of Iraq should be held accountable for the destruction of the country's infrastructure, its economic and social structures, its historical past and its health and education....
Students in New York City are so right-on to protest David Petraeus’ appointment as a highly paid professor at the City University of New York. Gen. Petraeus, retired from the Army in 2011 after a bloody reign in Iraq and Afghanistan and who was director of the CIA for a year, is a rabid warmonger and absolutely deserves to be thrown out of any educational institution....

Ten years ago on March 20, Washington brought the long plague of invasion, occupation and mass murder to the Iraqi people. The least the Iraqis deserve is a moment of reflection....
The corporate media in the U.S. play a powerful role in preparation for imperialist war. They play an even more insidious role in rewriting the history of U.S. wars and obstructing the purpose of U.S. wars.<...
As part of the decade-long NATO war and occupation in Iraq, led by the U.S., the imperialists conducted a campaign to promote foreign control by sowing and deepening religious and cultural divisions. The Iraqi people have paid a terrible price. More than a million lives have been lost, many from the shootings and bombings instigated by the NATO occupiers that continue to this day....
According to UN investigations in 2010 there are more than 27,000 prisoners held by the U.S. in more than 100 secret prisons around the world and on 17 ships as floating prisons. These are almost entirely Muslim prisoners....
So now we finally know part of the terrible truth. Will the Human Right Council finally wake up and start to investigate the thousands upon thousands of war crimes, committed by the Anglo-American occupation forces and their local Iraqi stooges? Will the ICC finally do what it is created for: persecute war criminals? Investigate the US genocide in Iraq? Please? After more than one million deaths, and millions of refugees?...
he 11th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan was not forgotten by anti-imperialist activists inside the United States. From New York City to Los Angeles, and in dozens of cities in between, the ongoing war and occupation were denounced at actions held Oct. 5-7. Initiated by the United National Antiwar Coalition and related organizations, the series of protests demanded “U.S./NATO out of Afghanistan!” “Hands off Syria!” “Don’t attack Iran!” “No more drone attacks!” and “No sanctions!” Following are outlines of actions in several cities....
While staying aware of its destructive capacity, we can expand our view if we also examine its weaknesses. The Pentagon’s Achilles’ heel lies within the contradictions of the capitalist system that created this monstrosity....
Racism is a weapon of war. We stand in solidarity with victims of police, state, and racial violence and build links to people under attack – Muslims, Sikhs, immigrant workers, death row prisoners, ­African-American and Latino youth, social justice ­activists are all targets in an atmosphere of escalating racism and repression....
There are times in history when war and politics converge with economics to create a true turning point, a point at which things cannot and will not ever be the same. Such points in time are marked by fierce struggle....

A Russian news team was told by Syrian eyewitnesses that the May 25 massacre of civilians in Houla, universally blamed on the Assad government, was in fact committed by local criminals, mercenaries and other forces connected to the imperialist-armed “Free Syrian Army.”...
Even as the failure of authorities in Florida to arrest the killer of 17-year-old African-American Trayvon Martin continues to stoke the fires of righteous anger at racism, another killing has taken place that has touched a nerve of outrage and solidarity around the U.S....
As Washington was announcing the end of its occupation, Iraqis burned U.S. flags, brandished banners and thronged the streets of Falluja to celebrate the U.S. troops’ withdrawal from the former resistance stronghold and site of some of the Iraq War’s fiercest battles....
The Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalise War is serious about getting George W. Bush and Tony L. Blair arrested and prosecuted, after the milestone verdict of the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal, where they were found guilty of Crimes against Peace, Crimes against Humanity and War crimes on 22 November 2011.&...
Occupy Boston and the United National Antiwar Committee rocked the city’s business district as 5,000 protesters marched on Oct. 15 with cries of “Whose streets? Our streets!” A contingent from Steelworkers Local 8751 representing Boston school bus drivers led the march from a union sound truck festooned with placards declaring “Wall Street = War Street.” The truck was ringed by a steadfast security contingent from Vets for Peace/Smedley Butler Brigade....
It was called as a global Day of Rage that also focused on the 10th anniversary of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan. This convergence of events on Oct. 15 put tens of thousands of people in motion here in New York and in other cities across the country, reinforcing their anger at imperialist wars....

The antiwar movement is back on the streets. Thousands marched on April 9 in New York and April 10 in San Francisco. These demonstrations represented an important step forward for the United National Antiwar Committee and the antiwar movement as a whole. The new antiwar movement needs to oppose the US foreign wars but also defend the domestic victims of the "war on terror," the Muslims who are being attacked. It must connect the dots between the money spent on war and the attacks on unions and cuts to education and needed programs. This is what these demonstrations on April 9 and 10 did....
Three thousand activists demonstrated against U.S. wars abroad on April 10 in San Francisco. Protesters rallied in Dolores Park in the city’s Mission district both before and after a march through the community. The United National Antiwar Committee sponsored the actions. Those who attended were buoyed by what they described as “the renewal of the anti-war movement....
Thousands of people from virtually all sectors of U.S. workers, the oppressed and youths gathered in Union Square in New York City April 9 and marched, shouted and drummed their anti-war slogans for two miles to Foley Square in downtown Manhattan. As this largest anti-war march in New York in years stretched for 20 blocks down Broadway, it passed by thousands of New Yorkers busy shopping, who smiled, cheered and waved at what can only be described as the new face of a vibrant movement to confront the war-makers....
The new war in Libya has given rise to a new movement, as the largest anti-war demonstration New York has seen in years took to the streets of Manhattan....

...
he major national Antiwar Rallies in NYC at Union Square, on Saturday, April 9 and in San Francisco on Sunday, April 10 are just 2 weeks away. Momentum is building based on the urgency of responding to the new attacks in Libya, no end to the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, more attacks and threats to Gaza, ugly attacks on Muslims, new attacks on unions and collective bargaining and a new rounds of cutbacks of every possible social program, particularly hitting the Black and immigrant communities and the unemployed....
Defying threats from the puppet government and several party militias, thousands of Iraqis from Basra in the south to Suleimaniya in the Kurdish north took to the streets Feb. 25 in a “Great Day of Anger” inspired by the uprisings across the Arab world....
The Arab world is seething. Though it was ignored by most of the Western media, the mood has also spread to Iraq in recent weeks to generate a massive protest movement. In contrast to the demonstrations in other Arab countries very little was reported here in Germany -- could it be because so many seriously believe Iraq has been “liberated” since Saddam Hussein's 2003 fall? At last Friday’s (Feb. 25) nationwide demonstrations alone, according to UPI, at least 29 people were killed and hundreds injured. Three hundred demonstrators were reportedly arrested. Even the Washington Post, which shows a lot of sympathy for the government forces, reported about 23 dead. ...
As popular revolts spread across the Arab world, now breaking out in Morocco and Algeria, Jordan, Yemen and Bahrain, even in Kuwait, it is important to remember one of the nations in this region that faces a special situation: It is forcibly occupied by 50,000 U.S. troops. It is Iraq, which the U.S. and Britain invaded in March 2003 and which the U.S. has occupied since. No one should forget, when considering the crimes of the U.S.-backed tyrants, that U.S. imperialism is responsible for the deaths of a million Iraqis and the displacement of 4 million....
While millions across the world watched live 18 days of dramatic revolution that ousted the US-allied torture-friendly regime of Hosni Mubarak, no one is offered live feed from Iraq of its people’s uprising against an enemy much worse....
The revolutionary upheaval in Egypt has brought millions of workers, youth and professionals into the streets to demand the removal of the U.S.-backed regime of Hosni Mubarak. The potential looms for a total collapse of Washington’s foreign policy in the region....
The steadfast determination that we saw in Gaza reinforces the importance of the major national antiwar coalition that is taking shape for April 9, organized by the United National Antiwar Committee - UNAC. What makes the April 9th bi-coastal rallies, in New York City and San Francisco truly historic is this coalitions very strong solidarity with the Palestinian people as well as the strong opposition to racism and the wave of anti-Islamic hysteria that has been sweeping the country. The International Action Center has made these issues a cornerstone of our work for many years. ...
After the George Bush-Dick Cheney ticket stole the 2000 presidential elections, Halliburton Corporation became a household word in the United States. Vice President Cheney had been Halliburton’s CEO during 1995-2000. With its subsidiary, Kellogg, Brown and Root, Halliburton won lucrative government contracts during the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq....

Imperialist diplomacy is constructed on lies and secrets. No one is surprised by the secrets. Few are surprised by the lies. Still, a sudden exposure of the lies and secrets can arouse a strong political reaction....
We all are stunned and saddened by the abrupt announcement that Tariq Aziz has been condemned to hang. He was found guilty on bogus charges by the illegitimate court in Baghdad that tried various Ba’ath Party officials, including President Saddam Hussein. At that time, he received a sentence of 22 years in prison, assuring he would die before he again saw daylight. Now, he is sentenced to hang....
A prisoner was kneeling on the ground, blindfolded and handcuffed, when an Iraqi soldier kicked him in the neck. A U.S. marine sergeant was watching and reported the incident, which was duly recorded and deemed “valid.” The outcome: “No investigation required.”...
You do not know me. Why should you? Or maybe you should have known me and the many other UN officials who struggled in Iraq when you prepared your Iraq policy. Reading the Iraq details of your "journey", as told in your memoir, has confirmed my fears. You tell a story of a leader, but not of a statesman. You could have, at least belatedly, set the record straight. Instead you repeat all the arguments we have heard before, such as why sanctions had to be the way they were; why the fear of Saddam Hussein outweighed the fear of crossing the line between concern for people and power politics; why Iraq ended up as a human garbage can. You preferred to latch on to Bill Clinton's 1998 Iraq Liberation Act and George W Bush's determination to implement it....
“We won! It’s over — America!” A young man whoops and hollers in what could be a cry from the crowd at a sports game. In fact, it was the ill-judged, hubristic “victory’” shout of a soldier rolling over the Kuwaiti border in his armored truck, as supposedly the last U.S. combat brigade left Iraq after seven grueling years....
With the overwhelming support of the more than 700 people who registered for the three-day event, the United National Anti-war Conference decided July 25 to adopt an action program. It included support for a series of actions across the country in the coming weeks and months and for mass demonstrations next April 9 on the East and West Coasts. These actions will demand the immediate withdrawal of U.S. and other occupation troops and mercenaries from Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan....
This is the moment to open a campaign to reawaken and mobilize a movement that can end the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq. The New York Times in the U.S., the Guardian in Britain and Der Spiegel in Germany have published their spins on 92,000 classified cables released by Wikileaks, cables with messages between U.S. officials regarding the occupation of Afghanistan and the war against the Afghan resistance....
Iraqi women have been among the most liberated of their gender in the Middle East. They have a long history of political activism and social participation since the 19th century, having taken part in the struggle against colonial domination and in the fight for national unity, social justice and legal equality throughout the 20th century. In fact, UNICEF reported in 1993 that “rarely do women in the Arab world enjoy as much power and support as they do in Iraq.”...
A 22 year old U.S. soldier, B. Manning, has been arrested on suspicion of leaking classified combat video footage and secret documents to a whistle-blower website. SPC Manning, from Potomac, Maryland, is assigned to the 2nd Brigade, 10th Mountain Division and was stationed at Forward Operating Base Hammer, located east of Baghdad. SPC Manning was arrested in Iraq and is currently being held in Kuwait pending further investigations. The WikiLeaks website posted a video which shows U.S. occupation forces shooting civilians on a Baghdad street during 2007....

In the first action of its type during the current U.S. wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, the Berkeley, Calif., City Council on March 9 passed a resolution entitled, “Universal and Unconditional Amnesty for Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan War Military Resisters and Veterans Who Acted In Opposition to the War for Matters of Conscience,” according to a report from Courage to Resist....
It is an absolutely chilling demonstration of cold-blooded murder. A U.S. Apache gunship circles a Baghdad neighborhood looking for “targets” — people to kill. A military video shows the intended targets through superimposed crosshairs: a group of men dressed in civilian clothes, no masks, no apparent weapons, casually sauntering along a street and into a small square....
The International Action Center will be traveling to DC this weekend with activists from Bailout the People Movement, BAYAN, FIST-Fight Imperialism Stand Together, Peoples Organization for Progress, May 1 Coalition for Workers and Immigrant rights, Women’s Fight Back Network, Free Mumia Coalition and many others in cars, vans and buses.

Saturday, MARCH 20...

The Bail Out the People Movement, meeting in New York on Feb. 24, voted to endorse and help to mobilize for the March 20 National March on Washington. The demonstration, called by the Answer Coalition, raises the slogans: U.S. out of Afghanistan and Iraq, Free Palestine, Reparations for Haiti, and Money for Healthcare, Jobs and Education. The endorsement, proposed by the International Action Center, had unanimous support and was followed by a concrete discussion of outreach, transportation and material to take to Washington....
As the March 7 national election approaches in Iraq, the number of U.S. troops occupying the country has slipped below 100,000 for the first time since the U.S.-led invasion seven years ago. The Pentagon plans to change the name of its Iraq effort on Sept. 1, from “Operation Iraqi Freedom” to “Operation New Dawn” when 50,000 troops remain....
Among the most important corporate media censored news stories of the past decade, one must be that over one million people have died because of the United States military invasion and occupation of Iraq. This, of course, does not include the number of deaths from the first Gulf War nor the ensuing sanctions placed upon the country of Iraq that, combined, caused close to an additional one million Iraqi deaths....
Why is the largest military machine on the planet unable to defeat the resistance in Afghanistan, in a war that has lasted longer than World War II or Vietnam? Afghanistan ranks among the poorest and most underdeveloped countries in the world today. It has one of the shortest life expectancy rates, highest infant mortality rates and lowest rates of literacy.The total U.S. military budget has more than doubled from the beginning of this war in 2001 to the $680 billion budget signed by President Barack Obama Oct. 28. The U.S. military budget today is larger than the military budgets of the rest of the world combined. The U.S. arsenal has the most advanced high-tech weapons....

It is time to let Iraq to Iraqis, to withdraw unconditionally and let Iraq to a transitional government that is supported by the resistance and the anti-occupation forces and masses. It is this government that can offer a sincere election. The U.S. government and think tank theatre for Iraq hasn't produced - and will not produce - but blood, death and destruction for Iraqis.

Mutadhar al-Zaidi, is an Iraqi journalist who was jailed on Dec. 14, 2008, after he threw his shoes at then-U.S. President George W. Bush, at a Baghdad press conference, with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki. His actions which were hailed worldwide, protested the U.S.-led war and occupation of Iraq. Following al-Zaidi’s release on Sept. 15, 2009, he gave this speech....
The conflict in Iran that opened up with the June presidential elections there has had an impact on the progressive and anti-imperialist movement worldwide, including in the United States. Misunderstanding the events has created some confusion in anti-war ranks. This is especially dangerous after Vice President Joe Biden on July 5 gave a virtual green light to an Israeli attack on Iran. The anti-war movement must stay alert to protest any move in that direction....
"There is no way I will deploy to Afghanistan. The occupation is immoral and unjust. It does not make the American people any safer. It has the opposite effect," said Army Specialist Victor Agosto, who has already served one tour in Iraq in almost four years in the Army.

It is becoming clear that the stimulus packages and bail out proposals coming from Wall Street and Washington won't even make a dent in the growing number of layoffs and foreclosures. Working people must organize independently to demand a bail out for the people, not the banks. It's time to march on Wall Street! The stock markets are crashing, the world economy is headed into a depression, and the U.S. government and its top bankers are giving trillions of dollars to bailout the richest 1 percent of the people while doing nothing to rescue ordinary working and poor people....

Three years ago, The Daily News ran a story about reservists returning from Iraq in 2004 from the same unit who were suffering from what euphemistically has been called "Gulf War Syndrome." It turned out that they all had been exposed to radioactive dust during their tour of duty in Iraq. The short term and long term effects of this exposure are slowly emerging into public consciousness....

As the fifth anniversary of the criminal U.S. occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan neared, tens of thousands hit the streets on Mar. 15 calling for an end to the war.

In this time of economic crisis, thousands of homes are being foreclosed, workers are being laid off in record numbers, and our education system and social programs are severely underfunded. Meanwhile, the raging wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are costing human lives on both sides as well as U.S. tax dollars. The population of the U.S. has proven that we are against these imperialist wars; and yet our tax dollars are going to these occupations, as opposed to our needs....

wo organizations that analyze the media have counted 935 false statements made by the Bush gang between Sept. 11, 2001, and March 19, 2003, that greased the way for the invasion of Iraq. This useful information exposes almost by itself the responsibility of the entire U.S. ruling class for the conspiracy to wage war....
The Iraqi sectarian Government established under the US occupation is about to agree with the occupying power to transfer all Iraqi prisoners of war (POW) and detainees held in the Baghdad International Airport prison from US authority to its authority. This information was confirmed by the American airport prison authority who informed the defense lawyers of Iraqi POW that beginning with 31 March 2008 it will relinquish the responsibility of their safety during their visits to the prison. This means that the handover is imminent, and a new carnage place, similar to that when president Saddam Hussein and his comrades were handed over to the same sectarian Government and its Militias. ...
The Bush administration released on Feb. 1 a vile four-page summary of a longer classified report on Iraq called the National Intelligence Estimate. Prepared by 16 U.S. intelligence agencies active there, the summary described the situation in Iraq as going from bad to worse. ...
One of the most underreported stories from the Vietnam War is the role played by the disintegration of military discipline as the war dragged on. While the situation in Iraq has not reached the same point yet, revolutionaries understand that the fact that the bosses are forced to rely on workers in uniform to wage their wars raises the possibility that the troops will say, "No."...
The financing of U.S. president George W. Bush's wars is now just about accomplished for 2008. By a large majority, briefly before Dec. 25 the House of Representatives and Senate granted an additional $70 billion for the occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan. A large number of Democrats again voted for continuing the funding. What made it easier for this bill to pass was that in the U.S. there was a changed perception of the war in occupied Iraq....
Three years ago today, on May 1, 2003, U.S. President George Bush made his famous landing on the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln in a secret flight and sent his congratulations to the sailors and pilots while standing under a banner that read: "Mission Accomplished." At that same time, when Secretary of State Donald Rumsfeld still believed he could "shock and awe" all of Iraq into accepting these plans, the U.S. leaders might have believed they could set up a single weak and submissive Iraqi puppet government....
To conclude I would like to denounce the total lack of interest in human lives by the occupying forces and the Western mainstream press. There is obviously a lot of racism involved in the way this occupation is handled by the MNF-I and covered by the media. Some of the academics assassinated were among the finest scientists not only in the Middle East, but worldwide. Nevertheless, none of these murders have been investigated, and very few commemorations appeared in the Western press when these famous academics were killed. And that is another crime....
As was agreed upon in the meeting of Iraq activists in Madrid during the International Seminar about the assassination of Iraqi academics and health workers, the International Anti-Occupation Network has been established....
Representatives from anti-war groups in eight countries met here the weekend of April 21 to 23, 2007, to discuss a grim emergency: the assassinations and disappearances of hundreds of Iraqi scientists, doctors, teachers and other intellectuals under the U.S.-UK occupation. They heard firsthand the plight of Iraqi academics and medical professionals who struggle to live amid constant threats, physical violence, kidnappings and the operation of death squads....

These forces cannot and do not subscribe to the Forum's Reference Document that affirms the inviolability of international law....
The U.S. Marine Corps launched another offensive this May--this one not a landing on some foreign beach but a legal attack on its own anti-war Iraq veterans. Given the results of the first skirmish in Kansas City, Mo., on June 4, 2007, the USMC already seems to be deciding that it might retreat rather than find itself fighting another losing battle with a popular army....

If the full dimensions of the horror the U.S. occupation has created in Iraq were exposed and confronted, world outrage would reach such a pitch that the occupation could not continue. A huge number of reports that are largely ignored or given only passing mention in the corporate media confirm an unprecedented level of destruction of essential infrastructure, loss of life and massive displacement of people....
