Rethink Afghanistan: Experiences in the Afghanistan War


Rethink Afghanistan: Experiences in the Afghanistan War

Via BraveNewFoundation:
President Obama has decided to send more than 30,000 extra troops to Afghanistan, at a cost of more than $1 million per soldier/year. But America cannot afford a war that does not make us safer, and Congress has the power to stop the escalation.

This is why a group of Afghanistan veterans will deliver a petition to be read on the Congressional floor by Rep. Alan Grayson urging his fellow congessmembers to Vote NO on any spending bill that would send more troops to Afghanistan. From the front lines of battle to the halls of Congress, these courageous men and women know the perils of the conflict and are ready to demand a new course of action

We need to reach 100,000 signatures - a number that Congress, mainstream media and the American public must recognize.

Please sign the petition telling Congress we cannot afford a war that does not make us safer.
