Appeal for Redress

I am once again in debt to my friend Carl at Which Way To The Future? for the heads up on this effort by service members to have a response from their elected officials.   This will be an important statement that will co-exist with official hearings into the NeoCon War Machine if Democrats win control of congress.

As I have expressed on my other blogs... Please help vote these people out of office and help pave the way for accountability and constructive alternatives to the ever worsening conditions in Iraq...

Appeal for Redress

An Appeal for Redress from the War in Iraq

Many active duty, reserve, and guard service members are concerned about the war in Iraq and support the withdrawal of U.S. troops. The Appeal for Redress provides a way in which individual service members can appeal to their Congressional Representative and US Senators to urge an end to the U.S. military occupation. The Appeal messages will be delivered to members of Congress at the time of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in January 2007.

The wording of the Appeal for Redress is short and simple. It is patriotic and respectful in tone.

As a patriotic American proud to serve the nation in uniform, I respectfully urge my political leaders in Congress to support the prompt withdrawal of all American military forces and bases from Iraq . Staying in Iraq will not work and is not worth the price. It is time for U.S. troops to come home.

If you agree with this message, click here.

The Appeal for Redress is sponsored by active duty service members based in the Norfolk area and by a sponsoring committee of veterans and military family members. The Sponsoring committee consists of Iraq Veterans Against the War, Veterans For Peace, and Military Families Speak Out.

Members of the military have a legal right to communicate with their member of Congress. To learn more about the rights and restrictions that apply to service members click here.

Attorneys and counselors experienced in military law are available to help service members who need assistance in countering any attempts to suppress this communication with members of Congress.

Several members of Congress have expressed interest in receiving the Appeal for Redress.

Great post, I commend all these active service members for having the courage to speak up about this mess, I haven't seen to much coverage on the so-called liberal press of this issue, only a brief mention here and there.

The main-stream media has more or less catering to the G.O.P corruption machine, while mostly ignoring which is most revel ant to us all.

It is past time we actually do some of that Support! for The Troops! in the most meaningful way we can-by pulling them out of a nightmare that serves no purpose other than weakening the country that they serve.
Dying in a war for nothing isn't what these patriots signed on for. How can we stand by and let it go on?

I don't support an immediate withdrawl, but an exit plan and timetable is needed.
My exit plan would have the troops out with in 12 months.
We tried to establish free elections and it seems for everything that we do, they Iraqi's set themselves back two steps.

Your wonderful campaign for peace doesn't seem to be going too well. Why not ask Al-Qaeda to join in too?

I want to alert those of you who are actively interested in peace to check out a free online game for raising consciousness called "Sacred Cow Tipping - 30 Days to Creating a Change in Direction."
We are already at day 18, however your participation would be a tremendous help in keeping the momentum going.

The troops serve one main purpose, to feed the War Machine, so that the old men that run war production can laugh all the way to the Bank, and the politicians that mouth off for them have a nice retirement package!
