On June 28, 2005, President George W. Bush addressed the military
and the nation from Fort Bragg, North Carolina: "Some contend that
we should set a deadline for withdrawing U.S. forces Setting an
artificial timetable would send the wrong message to the Iraqis, who
need to know that America will not leave before the job is done ...
Our mission in Iraq is clear."
What is `The Mission' in Iraq?
Are U.S. troops in Iraq protecting Iraqis or Americans?
Can 'the terrorists' be defeated in Iraq?
Is the world a safer place because of U.S. forces in Iraq?
Is the tide turning, in Congress and among the general public,
against the continuing U.S. military presence in Iraq?
What about the 'coalition of the willing'?
What can you do?
Learn how you can make a difference in bringing an end to the U.S.
military occupation of Iraq, and help bring U.S. troops home.
This program will be both informational and organizational, drawing
activists, organizers, and the average citizen into the crucial
campaign to engender support for Congressional Resolutions calling
for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.
The program will include a multi-media presentation with speakers
and the Bloomington premiere of the new film --
"Falluja: April 2004"
This revealing documentary by Japanese documentary filmmaker
Toshikuni Doi, released in May 2005, investigates the human toll of
the U.S. military's bombardment, invasion, and seige of Falluja,
Iraq in April 2004.
