have been speaking out against the war in Iraq since before
it even began. We are no longer a voice in the wilderness--more
and more people are raising their voices against the war,
including top Republicans such as Senators Pete Domenici of
New Mexico, Richard Lugar of Indiana and George Voinovich
of Ohio, who have publicly stated they can no longer support
Bush's strategy in Iraq. The anti-war movement is gaining
strength and footing every day. We need to use this traction
to work even harder now for peace.
New York Times recently published a stunning editorial, The
Road Home, which outlines a clear, open-eyed
strategy for getting us out of Iraq. It ends with these words:
country faces a choice. We can go on allowing Mr. Bush to
drag out this war without end or purpose. Or we can insist
that American troops are withdrawn as quickly and safely as
we can manage -- with as much effort as possible to stop the
chaos from spreading."
must insist upon a withdrawal with all our breath, all our
heart. Send The Road Home to your Senators and ask
them to heed its advice. If the New York Times can come up
with a solid exit strategy, why can't our lawmakers? Click

timing is especially right since our Senators will be voting
on the defense authorization bill possibly as early as this
week. We need to remind them the chorus for withdrawal is
getting louder by the minute. The war in Iraq is currently
costing $10 billion dollars a week -- money that could be
used for healthcare, for education, for real security. The
cost is too great -- to our troops and our country. If we
keep raising our voices, our leaders will be bound to hear,
and bound to change.
