Just prior to the opening of the Green Party national convention in 
June of 2004 David Cobb, the soon to be Green Party presidential 
candidate, stated on Democracy Now, "you can't cut and run" in response 
to a question from Amy Goodman on why he calls for continued occupation 
of Iraq by the United States on his campaign web site. Cobb repeated a 
phrase "you can't cut and run" made famous by both Bush and Kerry, to 
justify continued US occupation of Iraq.

How did it come to pass that the Green Party, pledged to support peace 
and to oppose the Democrats and Republicans occupation in Iraq, 
nominated a candidate who only days before the convention was defending 
imperialist occupation of Iraq on national radio? Cobb's position stood 
against 99% if not 100% of the view of Green Party members not to 
mention the overwhelming majority of the people on our planet.
