Ignored by American Press, U.S. Citizens Still Protest Any New Iraq War

leave a comment »

Anti-war activists in a number of US cities have staged protests to express their opposition to any possible US military intervention in Iraq.

Over the recent days, militants from the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) have been wreaking havoc in Iraq and committing atrocities against people.

ISIL militants overran large swathes of land in northern Iraq, including the cities of Mosul, the country’s second-largest city, and Tikrit, the birthplace of former Baathist dictator Saddam Hussein, in just two weeks. The militants are also in full control of a main border crossing between Iraq and Syria.

The US says its military is ready for air strikes against ISIL militants in Iraq and President Barack Obama said on Thursday that Washington would send 300 “military advisers” to Iraq.

However, anti-war protesters in the US say the Iraqi people, who have taken up arms to help the army fight the militants, “need to have an opportunity to rebuild their society” without “these threats of military intervention coming from the US government.”

The activists – who were chanting “No new war on Iraq!” – say sending military advisers can be a prelude to a large-scale war as it was before the Vietnam War.
