Four years after the invasion of Iraq. Hizb ut-Tahrir report released a report entitled "Iraq: A New Way Forward", which was widely circulated amongst thinkers, academics, journalists, columnists, politicians and think tanks.
The report comprehensively refutes the false justifications for the continued foreign intervention in Iraq - including the need for foreign forces to referee Iraq's sectarian conflict, the idea that more chaos would arise if troops left and the notion that Western governments have the moral authority for nation building. The report also argues that "any discussion of withdrawal from only Iraq will not serve to end the legacy of Western colonialism in the Middle East" because "for the long term stability of the region it is essential that foreign troops withdraw from the entire region, for their meddling has led to almost a century of tyrannical rule, brutal occupation and instability."
The report advocates the withdrawal of all foreign military personnel in Iraq and the wider region, an end to the West's support of dictatorial leaders in the region, allowing the Muslim world to decide its own political destiny without interference, freeing the region's vast energy reserves from the control of monarchies and multinationals, recognition of the illegality of the occupation of Palestine and an end to double standards over nuclear power in the region.
