Anti-War Demonstration Set for Sixth Anniversary of Iraq War

by scrosby on March 18, 2009

Some Louisville peace activists are planning a demonstration in downtown Louisville tomorrow, which is the 6th anniversary of the war in Iraq.

Louisville Peace Action Community co-facilitator Judy Munro-Leighton says it’s important to remember the date March 19, 2003.

“This date is a date we cannot forget because we can never, ever let that happen again,” she says.

Munro-Leighton says the demonstrators will meet on the Metro Hall steps Thursday afternoon and hold signs marking each year of the war in Iraq.  She says the group is calling on the U.S. government to end all military involvement there. 

The demonstration is set for three to six Thursday afternoon.

There was no doubt that 9-11, like Pearl Harbor, needed to be avenged,
but Bush had another agenda.

Bush, Cheney, and appointees lied about WMD, aluminum tubes, and Niger Uranium to con Congress into approving an invasion of Iraq, a country that did not have anything to do with 9-11.

In WW-II, in 4 years, FDR put 13,000,000 men in the fight, beat 3 dictatorships, their leaders dead at the end.

After 7 years of War On Terror, neither Bush nor Cheney could find Osama Bin Laden, our US reputation is in the gutter, we’re still at war, over 4,200 US Soldiers are dead, over 30,000 maimed for the Bush-Cheney arrogance and lies. They ordered Torture, a violation of Federal Law.

If we as a people hope to force our public officials to obey our laws and our Constitution,
the time is Now
and the way to do it is
to prosecute members of the Bush administration
who violated Federal Laws,
including the law against Torturing prisoners.

The reason that we continue to have unnecessary wars of choice is
that our Congress makes excuses for lawbreaking officials instead of impeaching or prosecuting them.

Unless Obama’s statement that “no one is above the law” is a lie,
Obama must appoint a Special Prosecutor for Bush, Cheney and the appointee lawyers that advocated Torture, violated many Federal Laws, our Constitution & the Geneva Convention on Torture.
