We created a petition demanding that the US stop sending weapons to the Iraqi government. Since December 22, the Maliki government has been carrying out an operation in Iraq's al Anbar province under the banner of fighting terrorist groups that are hiding there, but it soon became clear that it was a widespread, armed attack directed at the residential areas in Rumadi and Fallujah, with random bombing of buildings using heavy artillery, tanks, and air strikes.
While the Iraqi government has claimed that Fallujah is overrun by ISIS, ISIL, or Al Qaeda, this has been proven untrue. In fact, there is is a popular uprising in Fallujah.
The US recently shipped helicopters for the Maliki government's use an dis discussing sending an additional shipment of hellfire missiles. The US should not be selling, gifting, or loaning weapons to a government that is using them to kill its own people.
