Women Don’t Let Women Drive War: Feminists Say Fire Nuland

On this International Women’s Day, stand in solidarity with feminists at CODEPINK and beyond. Sign our petition urging President Biden to fire Victoria Nuland and hire a diplomat with a people-centered approach to security and peace. 

Sign your name to the petition below!

President Biden,

Do women a favor on International Women’s Day. Fire Victoria Nuland as Undersecretary of State. 

Instead of promoting diplomacy, Nuland lights matches wherever she meddles, agitating for endless war in Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Ukraine. 

If we, champions of a people-centered feminist foreign policy, remain silent or support this Bush-era neocon simply because she is a woman, Victoria Nuland might just burn down the world in a nuclear fire.

Instead of promoting a ceasefire and peace negotiations in Ukraine, Victoria Nuland chooses to escalate the war by promising the US will arm Ukraine to seize Crimea, the site of Russia’s naval fleet on the Black Sea, part of Russia for nearly 200 years and home to ethnic Russians who voted to join the Russian Federation.

This is a prescription for World War III.

We need a peacemaker, not a warmonger at the State Department, an institution which is supposed to prevent war, not sow the seeds of devastation. 

Who is Victoria Nuland anyway?

Nuland’s resume reads like a war criminal’s rap sheet. 

Nuland served as Vice President Dick Cheney’s deputy national security adviser from 2003-2005, during the US war and occupation of Iraq, a painful chapter in US history that left over a million Iraqis dead and thousands of US soldiers in body bags.

In 2005, Nuland became ambassador to NATO, where she lobbied Europe to participate in the disastrous U.S. occupation of Afghanistan. In persuading other governments the US could win that war, she sold a lie across Europe to prolong a near 20 year occupation that left Afghanistan broke, with six million children and adults at risk of starvation.

In May 2013, Nuland was nominated to act as assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs where she was supposed to employ diplomacy in relations with Russia, Ukraine and other former Soviet states. 

Instead, Nuland and the White House hurled $5 billion taxpayer dollars at Ukraine to overthrow its democratically elected President and engineer a transition government to privatize Ukraine and prepare for  war with Russia.

Now as Policy & Planning chief, #3 in the US Department of State in the Biden administration, Nuland has repeatedly stated that she wants to destabilize other regions in Russia’s nuclear neighborhood: Belarus and Kazakhstan, because they are too friendly with Russia. What she really wants is regime change in Russia, a country of 143-million people, 190 different ethnic minorities and 6,000 nuclear weapons. 

What could go wrong?

Let’s make this right. On International Women’s Day feminists say to President Biden,
Fire Nuland. Be a diplomat. End this war in Ukraine now.”
