Poll question: What is the most important reason for ending the Iraq war?
I don't think anybody has asked this explicitly before.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

4. Because we are brutalizing Iraq
We have brought suffering, death, imprisonment to thousands of its
people in an unprovoked war, we are the invaders, we are the occupiers
we are the ones torturing people that we round up over then including
women and children, we should leave

8. Imposing an ordering where it is not needed is a copout too.

7. I don't like the killing.....
so many killed for who knows what reason! If we leave at least our people won't be losing any more son and daughters. The leaders that sent us there are in NO danger of losing loved ones.

9. Other: I believe Bush not only fabricated the intelligence but lied...
Edited on Tue Sep-27-05 07:50 PM by newswolf56
about the war's ultimate purpose -- that his alleged "blunders" (the escape of bin Laden, the emergence of Islamic theocracy in Iraq) are in fact expressions of secret policy and clandestine intent: the strengthening of Islamic theocracy throughout the entire Middle East, part of his support for theocracy in general whether Islamic or Christian -- opiate-of-the-masses religion to safeguard the wealthy ("God's select") and tyrannize all the rest of us. This is in keeping with his ever-more-apparent policy of unconditional support for the most Tyrannosauric forms of capitalism: Iraq or New Orleans, it is all the same thing: open-ended no-bid contracts for the plutocrats, poverty for everyone else. Note how the survivors of Katrina are officially denied adequate wages even as they are now being brainwashed by Fundamentalists getting fat off federal funds. Therefore to oppose the war in Iraq is (1)--to recognize that Bush is the most cunning, tyranny-minded president in U.S. history and (2)--to oppose his entire campaign of class warfare -- omnipotence for the rich, total powerlessness for everyone else. When we understand Bush's unity of purpose -- that he is the ultimate achievement of American capitalism and its intent to turn all the earth into a slave-planet -- then the necessity of the anti-war effort becomes undeniable.


Edit: completion (addition of last two sentences).
