Notes on Genocide in Iraq
By Dr. Ian Douglas
— The United States has committed and sponsored the crime of genocide in Iraq.
— Responsibility for genocide rests on specific intent and given or probable consequences of actions. The 2003 US invasion of Iraq was the culmination and intensification of a consistent US policy, spanning over 17 years, of destroying Iraq as a national and state entity.
— The United States attempted and succeeded to destroy the state of Iraq, but has failed and cannot succeed in its attempt to destroy the nation of Iraq.
— The Iraqi people have the legal right to resist occupation, colonialism and genocide by all available means, including armed struggle.
— The national popular resistance in Iraq is combating genocide directly where international law as a preventative and protective mechanism has failed.
— In defence of civilisation, people the world over should rise up in support of the national liberation struggle of the Iraqi people.
— In defence of international law, jurists and law associations should work to bring the charge of genocide against the United States, its leaders and its allies.
— The world must criminalise all forms of war. Defensive wars would not be necessary in the absence of wars of aggression.
