End the War in Iraq Act

      A resolution to the problem in Iraq is going to be solved one way and one way only if it is to be done before George W. Bush is out of office.   Something similar to this is what finally stopped the needless killing in Vietnam.   Something like this is what it will take for the killing to stop in Iraq.

When they realise that we are out of their country, they will not be so easily induced to kill their fellow muslim.   They can only expect what would come of any country torn in two pieces with the majority aligned with Iran.   The kurds have their own problems with Turkey.   The Sunni's are between a rock and a hard place.

The only sensible thing for us to do is get our people out of there.   The sooner, the better for all concerned.   - fc


Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) has introduced H.R. 4232, the "End the War in Iraq Act of 2005". I implore you to co-sponsor it.

The bill would allow Defense Dept. funds to be used only to provide for:

1) the safe and orderly withdrawal of all troops;
2) consultations with other governments, NATO and the UN regarding international forces;
3) financial assistance and equipment to either Iraqi security forces and/or international forces.

In addition, the bill would not prohibit or restrict non-defense funding to carry out reconstruction in Iraq.

It is time for Congress to embrace its responsibilty and put an end to this madness. To date there are 2600 dead U.S. troops, over 19,000 U.S. injured, over $300 billion in war costs, escalating acts of worldwide terrorism, an impending civil war in Iraq, and an emboldened Iran. It is clear that there exists no path to victory.

Since President Bush is refusing to take steps to end the quagmire in Iraq, Congress must. I want my Representative to be part of the solution by co-sponsoring the McGovern resolution, H.R. 4232.
