PLEASE HELP NOW!
I found this message on a message board in my yahoo group and thought
I would pass it along. I hope you will sign the petition and donate
$10 as I did. We need our children back home where they belong. My
nephew has been deployed twice now and will be going back just before
Christmas for the third time. I pray for his safety constantly as I
do for all our men and woman in harms way.
Please help me! We all need to do what we can to keep our children
alive and bring them back home safe and well, An Aunt who loves her
nephew and cares deeply about our future.
Please Sign This Petition Supporting a Resolution in Congress to End
Funding of the Iraq War Cindy Sheehan
We have endorsed a Resolution in Congress to cut the funds for the
Iraq War. We hope you will join us in signing the linked Petition
from Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) supporting HR 4232:
http://pdamerica. org/petition/ mcgovern- petition. php
We have been working with PDA organizing support for HR 4232 since
Rep. McGovern introduced this important bill in November of 2005.
Congress has appropriated more than $300 billion for U.S. military
operations in Iraq. Simply stated in monetary terms, we are spending
$8 billion per month in Iraq with no end in sight That's $2 billion
per week, or $267 million per day, or $11 million per hour.
Small wonder that 61% of the American people are opposed to current
U.S. policy in Iraq.
HR. 4232 would end all funding for the deployment of U.S. troops in
Iraq. Consider adding a link to your site,
http://pdamerica. org/tools/ issues/petition- webmaster. php
HR 4232 would in no way prohibit nor interrupt U.S. non-defense
funding in support of Iraq's social and economic reconstruction,
including support for democratic institution- building, elections, and
the restoration of Iraq's infrastructure.
HR 4232 provides for the safe, orderly, and honorable withdrawal of
the United States from military operations in Iraq. By continuing
U.S. support for the economic and social reconstruction of Iraqi
society and the financial and material needs of Iraqi security, it
maintains our moral and political obligations to the Iraqi people,
while concretely promoting, supporting, and providing for greater
multilateral engagement in these serious tasks
Thank you for your time and consideration. I hope you will sign the
petition and please share it with your friends! If you have any
questions about this Petition or the Resolution it supports, please
Bohlen, PDA Field Director (sherry@pdamerica. org).

donated to all for free donate Today!
