Help to stop an endless occupation in Iraq

 Help to stop an endless occupation in Iraq

Hi, Have you seen the news? President Bush is negotiating a deal with Iraq to keep our troops there indefinitely--it could include permanent bases and a massive military presence for years! Bush is trying to tie the hands of the next president and every president to come.

Congress can stop him from setting up permanent bases in Iraq and block an indefinite occupation--but they need to hear a groundswell of pressure from us immediately and loudly so they act on this quickly.

I just signed a petition demanding that Congress stop the president from committing to a massive military presence in Iraq for decades. Can you join me?



  1. I hadn't seent his yet.  It sounds rather ridiculous.

  2. I hadn't heard of this yet. I knew he was crazy...but sheesh!

  3. Bet your boots I can and did join you. Paula

  4. Oh yes!  I Think we can join you on this one!

  5. I know I'll be the voice of a minority, here - but I'd like to say that as a military spouse I've known for a long while that this was inevitable. After a war we never completely leave. We always establish a continuing military presence.

    Now, just because this war is unpopular and has gone on too long, doesn't mean we should just up and leave with our tails between our legs. Don't you realize how foolish and weak we'd look and that then maybe the fighting would be brought HERE?

    If nothing was done after 9/11 - there would be more terrorist attacks here. Sorry, but I don't want that for my child.

    My very own husband is fighting in this war right now - and I'd love nothing more than to have him home - but that doesn't mean that I agree with people who just "want the troops home" at all costs.

    We need to do what's right. Does anyone get in an uproar over the soldiers who do year-long hardship tours to Korea? Kosovo? Quatar? The same will be true in Iraq even after the war is over. It's just the way it should be.
