About Copyrighted Information
Web pages, message boards, forums, profiles, and email messages sometimes contain material in which users share material they have copied electronically from other sources. Because there are thousands of possible sources spread out across the Internet (e.g., home pages, blogs, and bulletin boards), it is difficult for ITV to determine if anything posted within or transmitted through ITV content infringes on the copyright of another party. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please notify the ITV Webmaster immediately so the situation can be promptly addressed.
ITV and its users may post links to other web sites or resources.

|The petition combines three simple propositions that together have the potential to end the Iraq War:
George W. Bush recognized Iraq as sovereign long ago and pledged that the U.S. would withdraw if asked (#1-2 above). Consequently, the petition calls for a referendum to let Iraqi citizens vote whether to make such a request.
In 2005 Iraq successfully held a referendum on its constitution, thereby laying the groundwork for this follow-up referendum. Moreover:
Iraq has elections scheduled in 2010, so adding a referendum is feasible.
The United Nations is already authorized to assist Iraq with referendums.
A referendum is nonpartisan, nonsectarian, and democratic.
Indeed, if the U.S. is serious about building democracy in Iraq, there is no better way than to let Iraqi citizens determine their own future. For more information on the petition, please see Frequently Asked Questions.
