Real change made by the
A recent government report announced that the U.S.
wars on Iraq and Afghanistan could cost .4 trillion over the next decade. The
Bush budget allots more money for war than ever before--almost 0 billion. The
real cost of the war is much higher in dollars and human lives. Nearly 4,000
U.S. troops and over 1 million Iraqis have died since the March 2003 invasion. All
of the money directed toward killing people should instead fund jobs, education,
health care, Social Security and housing for everyone. Not one more person
should die in this war based on lies.
A huge demonstration in LA on March 15 will send a strong message to the
warmakers--the people demand an immediate end to the war. It will also continue
to galvanize people to play an increasingly active role in the anti-war
movement. We don't want another five years of war and occupation. Join
the anti-war movement today. Only a powerful, independent people's movement can
stop the war!
