The Green Party's position on the US occupation of Iraq
















At the Green Party US web site...
http://www.gp.org/

the Green Party US is selling Green ribbon magnets that say "Green Party" and "Bring them home NOW"

At the Green Party US web site I found the following link contrasting positions of the Green Party with the Democrats and Republicans, entitled "the real difference: detailed issue comparison"

http://www.therealdifference.org/issues2.html

Issue: Invasion and occupation of Iraq

Oppose
Greens opposed the invasion of Iraq and oppose the continued occupation of the country. Greens favor an immediate withdrawal of US troops and US influence over Iraq as an occupying power. Greens favor giving the UN and a regional coalition a major role in dealing with security issues during Iraq's transition to a new government.

["Greens...oppose the continued occupation...favor an immediate withdrawal
of US troops..." That sounds like an unqualified "Out Now" position, something
like the unqualified "Out Now" position that Jay Pond advocated before he recently
"clarified" his position. -Comment by Doug Mann]

Here's Mike Cavlan's position, from his web site:
