SIGN THE PETITION: Tell the President and Congress to oppose military action in Iraq, including air strikes. The American people don’t want to restart the Iraq War.
President Obama will decide in the next few days whether the United States will use military force in Iraq.
American bombs are not the answer to a crisis in need of a diplomatic solution. Your voice is critical to urge the President to make the right decision.
No matter how much Senator John McCain wants to go back to war in Iraq, bombing a country in the midst of civil war and on the brink of collapse could make things even worse.
Thankfully there are progressive champions, like Iraq War Veteran, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard standing up to McCain and other war hawks — “It makes no sense for us to consider going back there and getting involved in what truly is a religious civil war. What real difference would (air strikes) make on the ground? And secondly, is it in the best interests of the United States to do that? I would say that those questions are not being answered in a compelling way that would cause me to support that.”
Help us send a message that the American people don’t want to restart the Iraq War.
