"The Whole World is Watching"

Green presidential candidate David Cobb today challenged the Democrats on the eve of their national convention to join the Green Party in calling for an end to the U.S. occupation of Iraq.

"John Kerry claims that he was deceived by the Bush administration and the U.S. intelligence community into supporting the unprovoked invasion of Iraq. Yet Senator Kerry chose to ignore reports from United Nations weapons inspectors, international outrage over the planned U.S. invasion and the millions of Americans who took to the streets opposed to the invasion.

"It is time to bring the U.S. troops home now. Their presence is opposed by a majority of Iraqis and is fueling political instability and widespread and continuing resistance. U.S. troops don't belong in Iraq any more than Dick Cheney's Halliburton does. Every day, more U.S. soldiers and more innocent Iraqi civilians are dying.

"The whole world is watching to see what the Democrats will do in Boston. They can either distinguish themselves as a true opposition party or can continue as accomplices to the agenda of the radical right-wing Republicans.

"The Green Party has consistently opposed this deadly and disastrous invasion. The Cobb-LaMarche campaign offers the voters of this country a genuine alternative and we are proud to present a foreign policy based on international cooperation, diplomacy and the protection of human rights," said Cobb.

Cobb will be making campaign appearances in Boston on July 25, 26 and 27 for forums, rallies and protests timed to coincide with the Democratic National Convention. Cobb's running mate, Pat LaMarche, will be in Boston from July 26- July 28. LaMarche will be speaking at a rally to protest the placement of a Bio-Terror Lab in the heart of Boston on Wednesday, July 28.
