United States war in Iraq, not again, petition

This 3 September 2014 video from the USA says about itself:

Iraq and Syria: Escaping the War Trap (w/ Stephen Miles)

Stephen Miles, advocacy director for Win Without War, discusses the causes and potential solutions for the crisis in Iraq.

From Win Without War in the USA:

Email Congress: War Isn’t Working!

It’s not too late to stop our latest war in Iraq and Syria before it becomes even more of a quagmire. Please write to your elected officials, then forward their responses to ReportBack@winwithoutwar.org or fill out this form so we know where they stand.

Tell Congress: Vote against the authorization of war in Iraq and Syria!

Vote against a new AUMF for ISIS

I am writing today to express my opposition to America’s new war in Iraq and Syria against ISIS.

I understand that Congress is likely to vote on authorizing this war. While it is important that Congress fulfill its constitutional obligations by debating this war, I encourage you to oppose military intervention and to vote against any new authorization for the use of military force (AUMF). An expensive war will be ineffective at ending the bloodshed in the Middle East.

I also ask that, as Congress debates this war, you raise important limitations that any AUMF should contain. These include ensuring that an AUMF is not open ended, specifically names the enemy, contains geographic limits, and opposes the use of ground troops.

Please let me know if you will join me in opposing endless war in Iraq and Syria.

  1. Dear fellow progressive,

    On September 14, 2001, in the wake of 9/11 and the tremendous pressure to support war I stood up and cast the lone vote against endless war. Now, more than 13 years later, we’re still using that authorization to wage endless war in the Middle East.

    We’ve been working to stop it. We’ve gathered dozens of co-sponsors from across the partisan divide on legislation that will repeal the AUMF. And now, with your help, we’ve gathered 147,878 supporter signatures at StopEndlessWar.com to support our movement to stop endless war once and for all!

    Help us keep the momentum going – add your name to the petition at StopEndlessWar.com.

    Thanks to your support, we’re closer than ever before to finally stopping endless war and making sure that there is a full, open, and robust debate whenever the United States desires to use military force.

    Will you stand with us? Sign the petition.

    Thanks so much for your continued support. Together, we’re achieving progressive change.

    Standing Strong,

    — Rep. Barbara Lee
