After three years and the death of
more than 2,300 American soldiers in Iraq, Congress
has yet to consider, debate and vote on alternatives to the
President's disastrous course. Alternatives to the Bush stay-the-course
policy - including those favored by most of our soldiers stationed
in Iraq - have been ignored, and Congressional leaders continue
to refuse to allow a full and open debate where all options
to the open-ended occupation of Iraq are considered and voted
Americans, including our soldiers stationed in Iraq, want
the U.S. to change course and home cleanings. Iraqi citizens agree:
* 72% of U.S. soldiers in Iraq
believe that they have done all they can militarily and that
our troops should leave Iraq within a year, and more than
one in four say troops should leave immediately.
* Two out of three Americans
think that the administration is mismanaging the war in Iraq.
* A majority of Americans believe
it is time to start bringing our troops home.
* Two-thirds of Iraqis oppose
the presence of U.S. troops in Iraq.
Now, a bi-partisan group of Members of Congress and thousands
of Americans across the country are demanding that the House
of Representatives immediately begin a debate where ALL alternatives
to the failed Bush policy in Iraq are considered and voted
How? With 218 signatures on a petition
House Resolution 543, regular
business in the House of Representatives must stop and a 17
hour debate on the Iraq war must immediately begin. The debate
will require that Congress consider and vote on all amendments
offered as alternatives to the Bush administration's policies
Currently, 112 Members of
Congress have signed the petition. With you help, we can
reach 218 and force Congressional leaders
to allow an open and honest debate and votes on the Iraq war.
