With their hopes for forcing and end to the Iraq war through congressional action dashed, a coalition of (the unwilling) anti-war groups in the U.S. has given up and significantly lowered their goals and expectations.


After a series of legislative defeats in 2007 that saw the year end with more U.S. troops in Iraq than when it began, a coalition of anti-war groups is backing away from its multimillion-dollar drive to cut funding for the war and force Congress to pass timelines for bringing U.S. troops home.

“There was a consensus that last year was not productive,” John Isaacs, executive director of Council for a Livable World, said of a meeting attended by a coalition of anti-war groups last week. “Our expectations were dashed.”

These actions quite naturally follow the defection of leading democrats such as Clinton, Biden and Murtha from the anti-war cause, which is no longer on the political radar for the current presidential campaign.
