PETITION: Tell the President, “Bring ALL Troops Home From Afghanistan!”

On July 6, President Obama announced his intention to maintain 8,400 troops on the ground and in harms way in Afghanistan. United for Peace and Justice opposes this cobring troops home afghanistanntinuation of ENDLESS WAR that has neither reduced incidences of terrorism throughout the world, nor made life safer for the people of Afghanistan or here at home. Please add your name to UFPJ’s appeal to the President and demand that he immediately withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan and commit to regional diplomacy that begins to build a solid foundation for a nuclear and weapons-of-mass-destruction free Middle East.  
To: President Barack Obama From: [Your Name Will Appear Here] President Obama, With violence and death all around us, it is time for a change. The endless war that has followed the 9/11 attacks on the United States is not working. Why should 8,400 Americans continue to be placed in harm’s way for a war that has no military solution? Diplomacy that promotes racial and economic justice, and the dignity of all, not military action, is the only way to bring peace to our world. Further military action and vast supplies of weapons of war including assault weapons will only leave the U.S. and the world subject to more violence. The American people seek peace and demand a secure future. Bring all U.S. troops home from Afghanistan before you leave office. Sincerely, [Please sign using the form below.]

    We do not end war by military means. We end it by diplomacy. Bringing the forces home would be a good start in that direction.
