Consumers for Peace Charity Profile
The invasion and occupation of Iraq in and of themselves are violations of international law; that is, war crimes, criminal activity.
Military strategy and tactics being applied in Iraq involve war crimes that continue to be committed on a wholesale basis. Fundamental respect for Iraqi citizens, for their well-being, security, human and civil rights, is being denied on a daily basis by United States forces in the interest of achieving the United States’ primary goal in Iraq, the control of that nation’s oil. No amount of military “success” will cleanse this record.
The fact that millions of Americans, including politicians and journalists, have been duped into supporting this adventure does not change its illegal, criminal character.
The world’s leading privately-owned oil companies, ExxonMobil, Shell, BP, as well as some of their smaller colleagues are, on the basis of strong circumstantial evidence, co-conspirators. Their extraordinary profits since the invasion of Iraq are beyond war-profiteering; they are ill-gotten gains as a result of violations of international law and at the cost of over a million deaths.
And the relentless, illegal pursuit of oil in Iraq is a major factor in driving up world oil prices, a process that is undermining millions globally in their daily struggle to sustain life.
The purpose of Consumers for Peace is to help end the occupation of Iraq and to bring to account those who are responsible for it.
