I will not sign it, because I strongly believe that an “overthrow of Baathist government” cannot be applauded on any level at all if it was not begun and wholly supported by the Iraqi people themselves. The US actions in Iraq are the same as in Vietnam, just on a smaller scale: racism; mass killing of innocent bystanders and feeding terrorism. This time, the US has sold off Iraq through massive contracts for oil and reconstruction to American businesses. In no way was this a revolt against imperialism: quite the opposite. If we tolerate this, why not Iran, Syria, Zimbabwe, North Korea, China, Russia, Cuba, the Ukraine, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Mongolia, the United States or any other corrupted government in the world, at the cost of hundreds of thousands of civilian lives?”
