Iraq War wrong, unfair
President Bush wants a no-limit credit card to spend lives and money in Iraq. We should not let him have it. Americans have turned against this war. The war was not based on the truth. There were no weapons of mass destruction. Saddam was not behind 9/11.
The occupation is not working. Iraqi society has degenerated into a violent nightmare. Iraq today is as far from a democracy as you can get.
This war is unfair. The burden of fighting, dying, and suffering is borne by a tiny sliver of Americans, allowing the majority to 'tune out' the war if it so chooses. Please urge your Congressman David Wu and Sens. Smith and Wyden to stand up to the President and vote for a fully-funded withdrawal from Iraq by the end of this year, as Sens. Reid and Feingold have proposed.
