Public support for the war is down, as are the president’s ratings. Antiwar Democrats are coming back. Military recruiting is hitting a wall. The strategy of “Iraqization” is failing. The coalition of the willing is disintegrating. America’s reputation is tattered.


The peace movement needs to advocate a peace plan, demand hearings and debate from Congress, and hold do-nothing politicians accountable...

A PROVISIONAL EXIT PLAN IS NOW CIRCULATING AS A PETITION TO CONGRESS ON SEVERAL PEACE GROUP WEBSITES:

THE CORE GUIDELINES ARE AS FOLLOWS:

A demand that the United States disavow any plans for permanent military bases or control of Iraqi oil...

A declaration of intent to end the occupation in months, not years, followed by an initial limited troop withdrawal by December....

A request that the United Nations take responsibility for military monitoring and the task of economic reconstruction...

The appointment of an independent peace envoy to undertake the shift from the military model to one of conflict resolution...

Immediate peace talks with the Iraqi opposition, including insurgents, to begin a political settlement...
