The Bush Administration is using all the influence and levers of power available to it to push the world into a military invasion of Iraq. The new national strategic doctrine of preemptive war that the Administration articulates is a dangerous escalation. Demanding that the US military police the world unilaterally–determining which regime’s transgressions shall be punished and which shall be overlooked–makes the world and the American people less safe.
The case for immediate military action in Iraq flies against reason. By the estimate of the CIA and British intelligence, Iraq is years away from acquiring nuclear weapons. There is also no evidence that the Iraqi government has any ties to the Al Qaeda network. Therefore, DSA opposes military intervention in Iraq and will work with like-minded organizations to organize effective political opposition to this war and the new strategic and military doctrines. DSA calls upon its members to join in political action in opposition to military action against Iraq.
