By Kevin A. Stoda in Kuwait On September 4, 2007, "The Declaration for Peace" presented to the world, and especially to U.S. citizens and congressmen a 9-Point plan[1] for getting out of Iraq and finally leaving the world and a region with a more peaceful and progressive future than the country Iraq or the region around it has experienced in a long time.

The 9-Point plan [2] focuses on stopping the funding for the war and creating a permanent peace plan for Iraq peoples, its regions and its neighbors.

The 9-Points are as follows:

(1) An end to all funding for U.S. military operations in Iraq.

(2) Safe and rapid withdrawal of all U.S. troops and coalition forces from Iraq, with no future deployments.

(3) No permanent U.S. military bases or installations in Iraq.

(4) Support for an Iraqi-led Peace process, including a Peace conference to shape a post-occupation transition.

(5) Return control of Iraqi oil to the people of Iraq, as well as complete sovereignty in their economic and political affairs.

(6) Support for reparations and reconstruction to address the destruction caused by the U.S. invasion, military occupation, and 13 years of economic sanctions.

(7) Establish a U.S. "peace dividend" for job creation, health care, education, housing, and other vital social needs at home.

(8) Increased support for U.S. veterans of the Iraq war.

(9) No war against Iran or any other nation. T

he only controversial part of the plan may be in finding out how to implement points #1, #2, and #3 above.

PULLOUTS & NO PERMANENT U.S. BASES IN IRAQ

Since currently, certain regions and peoples appear to need U.S military presence, the procedures involving the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd points of the plan need to be clarified. However, withdrawing troops from particular regions should start, immediately, even before each of the final application of the planned withdrawal are clearly identified.
