Support The Levin-Reed Amendment: Tell Your Senate Representatives To Dump Bush!
President Bush to start reduction of the number of US troops in Iraq within four months. That means getting many troops out of Iraq by April 30, 2008. It also means transitioning the mission of the remainder of American military forces there. Change the strategy so the mission becomes enforcement and protection, further prepararation of Iraqi Security Forces, and counter-terrorism missions.
We believe all U.S. Senators should allow the Levin-Reed amendment to come to a full, in the Senate. The vote is scheduled for today, July 17, 2007. Our troops are caught in the midst of a contentious and counter-productive civil war. We need a new strategy in Iraq. Senators your continued refusal to allow the Senate to vote on this issue is extremely damaging to our troops and our entire country.
The Levin-Reed legislation is a real alternative to the president's failed Iraq policy, and represents a critical first step in ending the occupation of Iraq.
We also believe as do many Americans, the President's "stay the course" strategy is wrong in Iraq. Clearly these policies have failed. We can not understand anyone who is compelled to continue supporting such unsuccesful policies.
The Iraqi Prime Minister has recently stated Iraqi forces could take control of their security at "any time" American troops want to leave. The Iraqis say they don't need American troops. A majority of American citizens wants to see our troops begin coming home.
Even the president has said our troops have accomplished their military mission, albeit rather premaaturely. They toppled a dictator, secured the country for multiple elections, and have given the Iraqi factions ample time to come together and work out their differences. The continued presence of American troops in Iraq significantly arouses anti-U.S. sentiment. American occupation severly prevents the Iraqi security forces from "standing up" as they need to do. American troops need to receive the ord to "stand down".
We ask Republican senators and Senator Joe Lieberman, and those Democrats would consider participating, to refrain from joining a filibuster of the Levin-Reed amendment. We ask you to help the people and to allow the vote to go forth.
Abandon this misguided loyalty to the President. Replace any biased view of the reality of what is happening on the ground in Iraq. Obstinace, you utter resistance to facing reality will cost both our armed forces and our country. It is a price we, the American people recognize we are no longer willing to pay.
BRING OUR TROOPS HOME!
