Bring our troops home from Afghanistan

( – promoted by buhdydharma )

President Obama will soon decide whether to send as many as 60,000 additional U.S. soldiers to the war in Afghanistan. [1]

Let's urge Obama to live up to his 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. Tell him to withdraw troops from Afghanistan — not send more.

The U.S. military has been in Afghanistan for more than 8 years. Enough is enough.

It's no surprise that 59% of Americans now oppose sending more troops to Afghanistan. [2]

We need to remind Obama that Lyndon Johnson's choice to escalate the Vietnam War doomed his domestic agenda to failure.

Tell President Obama today to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan.

    24/7 indefinitely.

    $133 million dollars a DAY.

    For what?

    It’s almost like someone in charge wants to bankrupt American on purpose.

  1. If 59% of Americans oppose the war, maybe that`s where the public option should be also.

    Or at least opt out of it.

    This is not a war of necessity, but a war of obscenities.
