Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

Ben Dangl: What do you think of the argument that US troops should stay
in Iraq in order to prevent civil war?

Dahr Jamail: The argument that the US has to stay in Iraq in order to
prevent civil war is racist and imperialist and is made by people who
don’t understand what is going on on the ground in Iraq. The US is using
tactics that heighten the probability of civil war by rushing through
this Washington DC- imposed timeline for the political process. That
coupled with using state-sponsored civil war, where they have a
US-backed Iraqi puppet government that is using the Kurdish and Shia
army to fight a primarily Sunni resistance. While most people are loath
to the idea of civil war, it is being instigated by the US and their
puppet government.

The US pulling out is going to begin the process of stabilization in
Iraq as well as be the first move to give Iraqis true sovereignty. The
Iraqi people are fully capable of resolving their differences and
setting up their own government just as did after the British pulled out.
