Stop The Iraq Escalation!
In January of 2007, over 29,000 Americans emailed President Bush, demanding that he end the "surge" of troops in Iraq.
Following is the text from that online advocacy campaign:
The Iraq war is hanging like a dark cloud over our nation and the world. I will not be silenced, and I know you won't either. Let's work as hard as we can to change course and start bringing our brave men and women home so the Iraqis can take responsibility for their own country.
Please email President Bush today -- urge him to stop the Iraq escalation!
Text of the Letter to President Bush
I urge you to stop the Iraq escalation.
It is time for America to start bringing out troops home so the Iraqis know that Iraq is their country, we are not occupiers, and they must defend themselves. It is time for a political and diplomatic solution to this travesty -- to bring together all of the countries in the region in order to meet and hammer out the details for bringing about a peaceful Iraq.
Instead, your proposed military escalation means more and more killing, leaving our sons and daughters in the middle of a full-blown civil war.
Please listen to the voices of reason -- Democrats, Republicans, your own top generals, and the vast majority of the American people -- and stop this unwise escalation in Iraq.
