Call Congress: Stop the New US Invasion of Iraq

President Obama’s announcement that the US is sending 300 "advisors" back to Iraq to stave off the rising Sunni insurgency was couched in assurances that "American forces will not be returning to combat in Iraq" – but who really believes that?

This President has absolutely no qualms about engaging in systematic deception if it serves his purposes. Indeed, his version of the numbers is in itself a blatant lie: in reality, we are sending 625 military personnel into Iraq, including the 325 Marines sent to guard the now-imperiled US Embassy — and that’s just what they’re announcing publicly. God knows what the real numbers are.

Furthermore, the President told us "we will be prepared to take targeted and precise military action if and when we determine that the situation on the ground requires it." This will presumably come in the form of air strikes, but the vague wording gives Obama lots of leeway.

Americans have had it up to here with Iraq, and want no part of another war in the Middle East. We did it when Obama announced he was going to bomb Syria: the War Party was taken aback by the sheer spontaneous power of the protest. Many thousands called their congressional representatives and made it crystal clear that they opposed any new war in the region, whether it be on "humanitarian" or "strategic" grounds.

The American people said "Enough!"– "Basta!" – and it’s time for them to do so again, in no uncertain terms. We here at Antiwar.com are asking our readers and supporters to call Congress and tell them under no circumstances should we send even a single soldier to Iraq. Not one penny, not one GI! And please don’t tell me it’s useless because they won’t listen – they did last time, as politician after politician, inundated with calls from angry constituents, backed away from supporting the supposedly imminent bombing of Syria.

We can win – it just requires action on your part. Go here to find the contact information for your representative in the House: go here to find out

  4. Great commentary from Justin – and call to action.
    It seems that Antiwar.com is not only the most reliable, principled and dedicated source of information.
    It is also probably in the best position to be an organizing and activist force.
    That deserves some thought and consideration.

  5. Many think that Putin's intervention had more to do with Obama's stand down on Syria than did the voice of the American people. Obama has never forgiven Putin for rubbing his nose in it and showing what an amateur he is. I think that Syrian event had a lot to do with US aggression in the Ukrainian fiasco. Plus our worthless congress did not even vote on it as did the British parliament, so there is no congressional vote holding Obama back.

  6. Called and spoke with Rep. Speier's aide Colleen, who took message but didn't give me her position on military action in Iraq.

  7. Thank you for for sharing so great thing to us. I definitely enjoying every little bit of it I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff you post nice post, thanks for sharing.

  8. Communication is lacking, parents aren't know-how savvy and never used to the communication styles of their kids, and this has elevated the technology gap. However logically thinking, technology has bettered the communication course of and has accomplished negligible harm. http://www.globalphoneworks.com/
