Why Are We Still Against War?
In 2003, millions of Americans joined the rest of the world in a determined, dignified, peaceful effort to prevent an unjust war. Those efforts were defeated by an oil-hungry, war-addicted, forgery-employing, out-and-out lying President Bush.
In 2006, American voters united again to elect a Democratic majority to both houses of Congress. Their mandate was clear: End the war in Iraq. Yet, the American occupation in Iraq continues today.
In 2008, Barack Obama won the Democratic presidential nomination because he had been against the Iraq War from the start, and won the general election because he promised hope and an end to the politics of fear. Yet, after the election, Obama supported keeping American soldiers in Iraq for years to come, and then engineered an escalation of the war in Afghanistan.
In 2011 came the Libya campaign. Three Wars? THREE WARS?
Things don't look good for the cause of peace. Some would expect America's anti-war activists to slink away, to go back quietly to their homes and give up. Others know better. Any President who pushes for war deserves citizen skepticism and resistance, and that includes President Barack Obama. Any Congress that squanders American wealth in battles that cannot be won merits our opposition.
The struggle to overcome the warmongers has not ended, and those who are wise are firm in their resolve against the effort to sell a new war against yet another evil enemy. We offer the following to you as symbols of readiness, as signs of continued resolve, as testament to your commitment to peace in these dark days of perpetual war.
