Iraq Veterans Send Obama a Message

Posted by libhom Friday, January 23, 2009

There Iraq War isn't magically going to stop merely because we have a different politician in the White House. We will have to take action to stop it. The corporate media would very much like us all to forget about the following:

- The Iraq War has killed over 4000 US troops and an unknown number of mercenaries.

- Tens of thousands of US troops have been wounded in this war.

- The Iraq War is severely damaging our economy.

- The war on Iraq has killed over 1.3 million Iraqis.

- The war on Iraq has devastated that country's economy.

- The war on Iraq has forced at least 2 million Iraqis to become refuges.

There are plenty of veterans who are even more opposed to the war than the rest of us are. Some of them are taking decisive action against it.

Iraq Veterans Against the War has "Over 1,300 Members, 56 Chapters, in 48 States." They have managed to do this despite the fact that they limit their membership to veterans and despite the corporate media's near total censorship of their actions.



From the YouTube page description:

Iraq Veterans Against the War's "End the War Now" ad, aired once coast to coast on NBC during the inauguration of President Barack Obama on January 20, 2009 at 8:57am PST/11:57am EST.
