Anthony Arnove – end Iraq occupation now

This program, with ANTHONY ARNOVE, author of Iraq: The Logic of Withdrawal, was held at the University of Illinois at Chicago on January 20, 2007. (JEFF ENGLEHART of Iraq Veterans Against the War also spoke, and will appear in a separate video.)

The November elections showed the growing sentiment against the war and occupation of Iraq. But the release of the bipartisan Iraq Study Group report shows no sign of actually ending the occupation. Even if all its proposals are followed, the U.S. will only cause more death and suffering in Iraq.
