Kerry should be clear: We are not defending our country by our war in Iraq, and we should get out.

Noted historian, and author of A People's History of United States, Howard Zinn has said that Kerry must have the courage to call for an end to the occupation of Iraq.

If John Kerry wants to win, he must recognize that our military intervention in Iraq is a disaster -- for Americans, for Iraqis, for the world. He must stop boasting about his courage in Vietnam and instead start talking about his moral courage in opposing that war.

He was not defending this country when he fought in Vietnam. He was defending this country when he said that we were wrong to be in Vietnam and we should get out.

He should not be saying that he will wage the Iraq War better, that he will replace U.S. troops with soldiers from other countries. If it is immoral for our soldiers to be occupying Iraq and killing Iraqis every day, then it is immoral for foreign soldiers to do the same.

He should be clear: We are not defending our country by our war in Iraq, and we should get out.

But Kerry, same as Bush - will not listen, that is obvious from the way he has run away from the peace movement.

This November, vote for peace, vote against the war, vote against occupations, Vote for Ralph Nader and Peter Camejo. Read their call for withdrawl from Iraq. End the occupation!
