  2. When will the U.S. destruction of Iraq end? This month, as we're speaking to students who were in middle school, or younger, when the Bush regime invaded Iraq 11 years ago, we're launching a crowd-sourced effort to tell the story of more than 20 years of U.S. aggression against the Iraqi people.
  3.  
  4. Crowd-sourced means we're calling on you to help ask the right questions, and search for the answers. Why did the US invade Iraq? Will the U.S. destruction of Iraq ever end? How did the occupation affect Iraqis?

  12. Send your suggestions for the best articles; films, books, posters, and analysis, going back to the Persian Gulf War of 1990, through the sanctions and Clinton's bombing of Iraq; the Bush regime's invasion & occupation, and the Obama era's "dirty wars."
  13.  
  14. We're also calling for content and designers for a series of posters on the theme: From the U.S. government to Iraqi people: Bombing, sanctions, occupation, destruction of a whole society.
