Want the war to end?

Marie E. RobertsFrisco

What options do we have to end the Iraq War? A majority of our elected representatives in the U.S. Congress have bills to continue funding this war in Iraq with the stipulation that we begin withdrawing and complete our withdrawal by next year. So far this is the only option on the table. Our Senator, Ken Salazar, has announced he will not vote for restricting the war funding as long as we have troops over there. This stance gives the President the option to continue his planned surge and the ill-advised botched-up war could go on indefinitely. When you consider that more than 50 percent of Iraqis approve of the attacks on our troops, it seems madness to me to keep our troops there in the middle of a Civil War. Let’s face it, they hate us more than ever. Our troops were never greeted with flowers and cheers for liberating Iraq, only resistance to our invasion. Support our troops by bringing them home. If you believe we need to initiate our withdrawal from Iraq soon, please call or write Senator Salazar and ask him to reconsider his stance. Contact info: local office: (303) 455-7600; fax 202 228 5036. Washington office: The Honorable Ken Salazar, U.S. Senate, 702 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington D.C., (202) 224-5852. You might consider contacting our other senator as well, but I think he is pretty hopeless.
