Project: How Did the U.S. Destroy Iraq?

March 3, 2014

iraq dead family2When will the U.S. destruction of Iraq end? This month, as we're speaking to students who were in middle school, or younger, when the Bush regime invaded Iraq 11 years ago, we're launching a crowd-sourced effort to tell the story of more than 20 years of U.S. aggression against the Iraqi people.

Crowd-sourced means we're calling on you to help ask the right questions, and search for the answers. Why did the US invade Iraq? Will the U.S. destruction of Iraq ever end? How did the occupation affect Iraqis?

You can contribute to this project via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , Facebook or Twitter. Use the hashtag #IraqWarProject.

Send your suggestions for the best articles; films, books, posters, and analysis, going back to the Persian Gulf War of 1990, through the sanctions and Clinton's bombing of Iraq; the Bush regime's invasion & occupation, and the Obama era's "dirty wars."

We're also calling for content and designers for a series of posters on the theme: From the U.S. government to Iraqi people: Bombing, sanctions, occupation, destruction of a whole society.

Resources are starting to be collected on this pastebin. Please join in now with your initial ideas.

Main Iraq Project: How Did the U.S. Destroy Iraq?


World Can't Wait mobilizes people living in the United States to stand up and stop war on the world, repression and torture carried out by the US government. We take action, regardless of which political party holds power, to expose the crimes of our government, from war crimes to systematic mass incarceration, and to put humanity and the planet first.
