Iraq Veterans Against the War

 Posted by

I came across this video on youtube. I had heard about Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) but this video made me intensely aware of the passion and commitment of the people involved. While a diverse group, common themes seems to be universally felt. The idea that invaders to our own country would be met with armed resistance, they viewed the Iraqi people as defenders of their country and the occupying forces (themselves) as the terrorists. The sense of being used by our government was also common with the apparent goal of maximizing profits for select corporations. 

You can go to the IVAW website for more information about the organization’s activities. Membership is limited to Active Duty, National Guard and Reservists who have served since 09/11/2001.
