National Day of Action US Troops Out of Iraq

Rally in Times Square on Saturday, January 4th, in support to the massive protests in Iraq following the latest U.S. aerial assault that killed scores of Iraqis, the Trump administration launched airstrikes on the Iraqi militia group that killed 25 members. The strikes violated U.S. law since they were carried out without any congressional approval. To make matters worse, the Trump administration announced it is sending 750 more troops to the Middle East and possibly another 4,000. This is in addition to the 5,200 U.S. troops already stationed in Iraq.

In the past 28 years, more than a million Iraqis have died as a consequence of U.S. occupation, bombings, and sanctions and tens of thousands of U.S. troops have either been killed or suffered life-changing wounds. The U.S. government has spent more than $3 trillion in the on-going occupation and bombing of this oil-rich country. Instead of taking the United States out of this endless war, Trump is building up U.S. forces in the region and threatening war with Iran.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

We must act and dare the appropiateness and not whatever comes to our mind not floating in the likelihood but grasp the reality as brave as we can be freedom lies in action not in the absence of mind obedience knows the essence of good and satisfies it, freedom dares to act and returns God the ultimate judgment of what is right and what is wrong, Obedience performs blindly but Freedom is wide awake Freedom wants to know why, Obedience has its hands tied, Freedom is inventive obedient man respects God’s commands and by virtu of his Freedom, he creats new commands. Both Obedience and Freedom come true in responsability (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)
