GET OUT of Iraq… Again!

Congress is in recess. But staffers are the ones who read your letters. And they're still at work.

Your “government” is AGAIN dropping bombs in Iraq. It seems like the Pennsylvania Ave Gang (named after the street that connects the White House to Capitol Hill) never learns.

 

I wrote demanding that the U.S. get out of Iraq using DownsizeDC.org's Stop Policing the World campaign.

 

Please join me and do the same. You may copy or edit my letter…

 

Historically, we know that every foreign intervention leads to disastrous outcomes. Iraq is the best recent example.

 

But instead of learning from these past lessons, the Pennsylvania Ave Gang (Congress and the White House) is making the Iraq mistake all over again!

 

Are you incapable of learning obvious lessons?

 

The Iraq War supposedly ended in 2011. But the authorization behind it was never repealed. This was a failure on your part. And…

 

THIS MUST CHANGE, because…

 

President Obama has started a new Iraq war, by bombing ISIS.

 

This is INSANE!

 

Taking sides in an ethnic, RELIGIOUS war will stir up anti-American anger, AGAIN!, as we will AGAIN be perceived as backing the corrupt and sectarian al-Malaki government.

 

Our intervention is also likely to prolong the war, making us partially responsible for the murdered and maimed innocents who will be the “collateral damage” inflicted by our bombs.

 

I DENY CONSENT FOR YOU TO COMMIT THESE MURDERS IN MY NAME!

 

STOP IT! Pressure Obama to get out of Iraq by…

 

* Reconvening immediately…

* denying funds for combat in Iraq, and…

* passing S. 1919, which repeals the 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq

 

I'll be watching what you do.

 

–END OF LETTER–

 

Send your letter using DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System.

 

Then, there's one more powerful thing you can do to prevent the renewal of the Iraq War.

 

After you've sent your letter to Congress we’ll send you a copy of that letter by email. Share it with your friends…

 

  • Encourage them to join you in writing Congress

  • Tell them it's free

  • Tell them how simple it is, especially after they've registered the first time

 

Thank you for being a DC Downsizer,

 

Jim Babka

President
