CREDO Urges Obama to Oppose Military Intervention in Iraq


CREDO
, a progressive group and Win Without War coalition member with 3.5 million members nationwide, released a statement today opposing military action in Iraq:

“For the last 12 years, Iraq has been Bush and Cheney’s war. But if the president decides to double down on George W. Bush’s disastrous decision to invade Iraq by launching a new round of bombing strikes, Iraq will be come Barack Obama’s war.

“In terms of American treasury and blood, the invasion of Iraq was one of the most foolish and costly decisions by a president in recent decades. That’s why CREDO opposed the war before it began back in 2002 and while we’re still fighting to revoke the blank check for war — the Authorization for Use of Military Force — that gives the president the ability to wage war without Congressional approval.

“It was clear then as it is now — that Americans can’t stop Iraq from sliding into civil war and religious sectarianism without occupying the country indefinitely. Americans elected Barack Obama in 2008 in no small part because of his principled and common sense opposition to the occupation of Iraq. Unless President Obama wants to go down in history as doubling down on George W. Bush’s disastrous invasion, he must oppose further U.S. military intervention, including the bombing of Iraq.”
