United States war in Iraq, not again

This 21 March 2013 video from the USA is called Dying Iraq War Veteran Tomas Young Reacts to George W. Bush Joke About Missing WMDs.

This blog post is copied from an email from Democrats.com in the USA.

With turmoil in Iraq, the United States contemplates military action. But the American people have already made up our mind – we’re not going back to Iraq.

Please join Rep. Alan Grayson in telling Congress: We’re Not Going Back to Iraq.

Thanks for all you do!

Cost of wars

Dear Activist,

I have some big news. The U.S. House of Representatives recently voted on funding U.S. combat forces in Iraq, and the warmongers won. Yes, I’ve checked the date, and yes, it’s 2014.


We need to say NO. American combat forces didn’t help last time and they won’t help this time. What is happening in Iraq is tragic and awful, but we should use the Hippocratic oath for foreign policy — first do no harm. Please join us.

Maybe Congress will get it right this time, after getting it so, so wrong last time. At the very least, since I’m in Congress this time, you can count on me to support peace. We also have a President not named Bush, and he actually listens to reason.

But tens of thousands of us pushing is essential!


The war in Iraq cost us $4,000,000,000,000.00, or 8% of our entire national net worth. Thanks to IEDs, head injuries and PTSD, it left 250,000 U.S. soldiers with permanent brain abnormalities that you can see on an MRI scan. But now we’re finally out of Iraq – and the military-industrial complex wants us to dive back in!

This is an emergency. Send this to your friends. Send this to your family. Post this on Facebook, on Twitter, on whatever newfangled services are out there.

If you know any reporters or bloggers, send this to them. It’s time to speak up. Just this once, let’s make the news, not be made by it.

We may win any given vote, or we may not. But if we don’t advocate peace, we won’t get peace. So let’s do this. Together.



Alan Grayson

    I am reminded of a poster that was very popular during Vietnam. It said or is not healthy for children and other living things. Please share this far and wide.
