Brad Pitt stars in a new movie called War Machine that presents the ongoing U.S. war in Afghanistan as something only a fool would ever imagine could be won.
This new Hollywood film presents the U.S. military as hopelessly unconcerned with reality and destined never to choose to end a war that creates enemies in the name of "freedom."
There is, however, another institution capable of ending the war: Congress.
Congressman Walter Jones (Rep., N.C.) has just proposed a not-completely novel idea:
Congress should cut off the funding for any more U.S. war-making in Afghanistan.
Click here to sign a petition to Congress urging your Congress Member and Senators to cut off the funding, not just for any escalation, but also for any continuation of the madness long underway.
The time has come to say enough is enough.
Not only is much of the rest of the world condemning U.S. war-making, but even some in Hollywood have been unable to hold in their grim laughter at the fervent pretenses of the supposedly humanitarian war makers.
If you think spending $800 billion largely on killing people in Afghanistan, generating enemies and causing environmental destruction while eroding our civil liberties and rationalizing government secrecy is more than enough, click here. Let's cut off the flow of cash.
After signing the petition, please use the tools on the next webpage to share it with your friends.
