Stop Bombing Iraqi Kurdistan!

Since 2007, the government of Turkey has been bombing the Pishdar region of Iraqi Kurdistan. Innocent Iraqi Kurds are victims of these bombings — twenty people have been killed and more than a hundred civilian homes destroyed. The people of this area have been displaced, which has taken a mental toll. They struggle with the loss of their livelihoods (livestock, beekeeping, agriculture). The constant bombardment has resulted in a lack of schools since teachers are afraid to travel to the area. The U.S. government can take immediate steps to pressure the Turkish government to stop the bombing.


To President Trump:

We ask you to urge President Erdogan to stop the Turkish air war in northern Iraq. The U.S. government could take immediate steps to pressure the Turkish government to stop the bombing. On Friday, July 28, 2017, as part of their cross-border bombing campaign, the Turkish Army shelled areas around Zakho district of Iraqi Kurdistan. As a result, four civilians have been injured. The Turkish officials claimed that they shelled the area due to the presence of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), however, the civilians have rejected the Turkish government's claim. Let's listen to the innocent civilians!

Sincerely,

    Since JFK was murdered (11/22/1963), the militarism he was starting to oppose has GROWN and GROWN. The US now has military forces in 70% of the world’s countries. There is almost no transparency and control. In a “democracy”.


    President Kennedy died for this country, the USA, trying to bring it and the world to peace. Our Establishment killed him and blamed it on Oswald. We have still not faced this truth in our history.


    He could not have been murdered by a single shooter; shots came in more than one direction, as MANY eyewitnesses testified. Parkland Hospital doctors in Dallas, who tried to save the President, unanimously testified to an entry wound in the throat and a baseball sized exit wound in the back of the head. Parkland Hospital doctors wanted to perform an autopsy, but the Secret Service forcefully took President Kennedy’s body at gunpoint to Bethesda Naval Hospital, where (after secret operations) military doctors (Naval) released autopsies that said all the gunshot wounds came from the back.


    President Kennedy was murdered by the Establishment – including probably the Pentagon, the CIA, the FBI, Oil Interests, LBJ, George Herbert Walker Bush, and others. The murder by multiple shooters was blamed on Oswald. A BAD scene, our media and politicians won’t even let us know who took away our democracy by killing our president. And our media and politicians won’t even honestly discuss this.


    America should know, face, and learn from its history.
