I just sent this to my senator - please read it and let me know what you think - feel free to use it if you want to
As a voting member of your constituency I plead for you to vote for the immediate withdrawal of our troops from Iraq. Our fighting men and women are
losing life and limb in a war brought to us based on half truths and outright falsehoods. I will not go into detail in this email with the evidence
that supports these facts other than to say Iraq was not an imminent threat to the USA, did not have ties to Al Queda in any significant way, did not
and does not possess any WMD and does not have nor has had in its possession the means to delivery such weapons contrary to the numerous speeches and
pleas from the White House in the days and weeks leading up to the USA going to war.
The fact of the matter is that as an afterthought to the 9/11 tragedy, the collective will of a nation " on defense " was manipulated to forward an
agenda that literally would have our forefathers rolling over in ther respective graves. Never has the United States attacked a soveriegn nation
that posed no immeditae threat to us, nor have we wielded our militarily might so carelessly with barely a forethought to an exit strategy.
It is not my place, nor my intention to vent my considerable anger at the current state of affairs that this nation finds itself in, however I will
send this Email in hopes that it finds your valuable attention and with that confirms what you undoubtedly must by now also realize. We should never
have invaded Iraq in the first place , but that bridge is crossed. Just because we are there now losing our loved ones , does not mean that we need
to continue to do so.
I appeal to your wisdom to do the right thing.
Respectfully Yours ,
