Iraq Vets For Progress
Iraq Veterans for Progress is the first and only organization established by Iraq veterans that uses the political process to call for the troops to come home.
November of this year is important not only because it’s election time, but also because it will mark the point where the war in Iraq has exceeded the length of U.S involvement in World War 2. In this almost four years of occupation, more than 2,600 of our brave service members have been killed and 20,000 have been wounded in action (40,000 medically evacuated). In addition, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have lost their lives and the U.S. has spent over $300 billion. All this has occurred while the majority of Americans and Iraqis want the troops to come home.
Our leadership failed us when they took our country to war based on shabby evidence. They continue to fail us by not implementing a plan for progress in Iraq.(read the rest at their website)
