1. The US announces it will end the occupation, close military bases, and withdraw, helping to dampen the insurgency and setting the stage for negotiations. 2. Announce that the US will use existing funds to cover the troops in the field over the next few months, and to pay to bring them home, while preparations are made for a transition to an international security and peacekeeping force. 3. Order a simultaneous return of all US contractors to the United States and turn over all contracting work to the Iraqi government. The massive corruption as it relates to US contractors, should be investigated 4. Convene a regional conference for the purpose of developing a security and stabilization force for Iraq. 5. Prepare an international security and peacekeeping force to move in, replacing US troops who then return home. 6. Develop and fund a process of national reconciliation, to begin with a national conference, an airing of all grievances and the creation of pathways toward open, transparent talks producing truth and resolution of grievances. 7. Rebuild roads, bridges, schools, hospitals, and other public facilities, houses, and factories with jobs and job training going to local Iraqis. 8. The US and Great Britain have a moral obligation to begin a program of significant reparations to the people of Iraq for the loss of lives, injuries, and damage to property. Implement programs to rescue the tens of thousands of Iraqi orphans from lives of destitution. This is essential to enable reconciliation. 9. Political Sovereignty. Put an end to suspicions that the US invasion and occupation was influenced by a desire to gain control of Iraq's oil assets by setting aside initiatives to privatize Iraqi oil interests or other national assets, and by abandoning efforts to change Iraqi national law to facilitate privatization. Excerpted from Kucinich’s 12 point plan for Iraq. The complete Plan and more about Dennis and where he stands on the issues facing us today can be found at
