The time for diplomatic solutions has come...
...at least 50,000 Iraqis
are dead, over 3,100 US soldiers have been killed, civil war is
engulfing the country. The original goals of the invasion have
long since shifted and new realities are evident. It is time for
reflection on where this conflict has taken us and where we might
go in the future.
American Dominican Coordinating Committee on Iraq has
done some of that reflection and we believe that the time has come
for genuine diplomatic and political solutions in Iraq. It is more

a responsible withdrawal of military troops, but we believe that
withdrawal alone will not adequately assure peace in Iraq. Attached
is our full statement. READ MORE
