It’s not just the liberals or Democrats folks! All “sane” people are calling for the same thing. Get our troops out from harms way now! Don’t wait do it now! It is simply not possible for us to win in Iraq. Our presence will make the coming civil war there much worse than it would be if we left now.
It would be beyond foolish for us to even consider going into Iran as the President and his administration are currently setting us up for. Their play book is same one they used to trick the public into supporting a war in Iraq, but we can put a stop to this one before it even gets started. Say no more to the lies, half truths, and distortions! Oppose further conflicts which are intended to enrich the military industrial corporate complex at the cost of American soldier’s lives. The drum beat to war is sounding again and we havn’t been able to win any of the other wars President Bush has foolishly gotten our nation into yet.
