Take to the streets!
Call our Representatives let them know we are paying attention to their votes. We want them to represent our views. It's time to end the War and Occupation!
At an AFSC event last fall, Col. Ann Wright made that statement, "When the Democrats win the majority in Congress, our work will just be beginning."
We can not afford to be complacent.
The lives and futures of too many Iraqis and Americans are ended or changed forever by every delay in ending our occupation of Iraq. At the current average rate of death of American military personnel, an August 2008 withdrawal would mean somewhere in the neighborhood of 1600 more senseless deaths and that does not begin to take into account the injuries so grave and profound that the lives of those injured will never be the same.
The Iraqi death figures are estimated to be roughly 200 to 1 for each of our military casualties. Think of that in terms our our own population. That would be another 320,000 Iraqi citizens - children, women, men....
The consequences of this war are staggering and devastating by any calculation.
