Impeach Bush over Iraqi invasion
It’s become obvious that the invasion and occupation of Iraq was a huge blunder, undertaken not for the protection of U.S. citizens or the liberation of Iraqis, but to open the way for profiteering by U.S. corporations with White House connections.
So what do we do now? Because of the hostility toward U.S. occupation, American GIs should be brought home. The security and welfare of the Iraqi people depend upon restoration of order, so the situation should be handed over to U.N. peacekeepers. This would mean that the United States would have to relinquish their control of Iraq’s assets and resources.
Regardless of whether U.S. troops withdraw, the U.S. government is morally responsible to fix what they broke. Because the American people didn’t stop our government from undertaking this illegal invasion and occupation, it’s now the taxpayers’ responsibility to pay for the damage.
However, much scrutiny is needed as to how the reconstruction contracts are being awarded, so that our money goes to actually helping the Iraqi people and their economy, instead of enriching CEOs and the criminals running our country.
The Bush administration must be held accountable for the scandalous connivance that cost the lives of thousands of Iraqis and hundreds of U.S. soldiers. Simply voting them out of office next year may not be an option, considering they were able to steal the last election.
I believe impeachment might be necessary to rid America of these despicable liars. For information visit; http://www.votetoimpeach.org
