Six years after our troops went into Iraq, the occupation continues, and Americans and Iraqis are still dying in a war based on lies. We have been fighting to stop this war since before it started, and we will continue that fight until all our troops are home from Iraq. Your Voices and the voices of military families were instrumental in turning the public against this occupation, and brought us to the point where President Obama had to promise to end the war in order to be elected President. We are deeply angry and profoundly hurt that his plans stop far short of ending the occupation of Iraq now. But, if we changed the way a nation viewed this war in the darkest days of the Bush administration, we can rally the nation now to press Congress and the President to bring all our troops home
NOT IN 19 MONTHS! NOT IN THREE YEARS!
BRING OUR TROOPS HOME NOW!
