In the past six weeks, America has flown nearly 3,000 missions, deployed more than 1,500 troops, and launched more than 150 airstrikes in Iraq.
Last week, the President announced that our latest war in the Middle East will be ramping up, with increased airstrikes in Iraq and soon also in Syria.
And–as early as today, Congress is going to vote on a controversial plan to send arms to Syrian rebels, pouring fuel on the fire of the Syrian civil war.
The pro-war extremists are working hard. Now is the time for peace-minded people to speak out and make OUR voices heard! Here are 4 ways:
1. Our representatives in Congress need to hear from you before they support another endless war in the Middle East! Today is a National Call-In Day, so your calls will add up with others!
Senator Patty Murray: 624-9515 (thank her for her past record on war on Iraq)
Senator Maria Cantwell: 353-2507
Representative Cathy McMorris-Rodgers: 353-2374 (thank hler for her vote to require Congressional approval of war on Iraq)
Message: “I’m calling to ask my legislator to vote against authorizing the use of military force against ISIS. Instead of rushing back to war, the U.S. should pursue alternative options, such as cutting off ISIS’s oil sales and stopping the flow of weapons to the region. Thank you!”
