Peace Factory: Israel loves Iran

Outraged Americans condemn US actions in Iraq and Iran: 'Enough with this nonsense' | USA Today |

Demonstrators took to the streets across the U.S. on Saturday to protest the Trump administration's killing of a top Iranian general and decision to send about 3,000 more soldiers to the Middle East.

"No justice, no peace. U.S. out of the Middle East," about 200 protesters chanted near the Trump Tower in Chicago. Protesters held signs that read "Stop bombing Iraq" and "U.S. troops out of Iraq."

More than 70 planned protests were being spearheaded by Act Now to Stop War and End Racism, a U.S.-based anti-war coalition, in conjunction with other organizations. They seek withdrawal of U.S.troops from Iraq and end to what it says is a war on Iran, according to spokesperson Walter Smolarek.

In Philadelphia, he said about 500 protesters took part. Demonstrations also took place outside the White House and in New York City's Times Square.

Cincinnati protesters chanted, "Trump says more war. We say no war," and "No more U.S. attacks. Iraq, we got your back."
