Marking the Death of 2500 US Soldiers in St. Paul Around 100 persons protested the continuation of the occupation of Iraq the day after it was announced that 2500 US troops have died in the Iraq war and its subsequent occupation. The protest took place in front of Republican Senator Norm Coleman's office in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Did someone tell you that U.S. military intervention in Iraq was over? Not true: we're at it again. This time the pretext to drop bombs is "curbing ISIS" (which was created by the U.S. in the first place, to overturn al-Malaki in Iraq and then Assad in Syria, and is now out of hand.
Like what happened to "our" creature al Qaeda in Afghanistan). And the death toll continues to rise...
Write your senators and tell them: "Enough! U.S. out!! Iraq has shown it can curb ISIS by itself!"
