Letter to elected officials

Please vote "no" on any new authorization for war in Iraq or Syria.

After 13 years of U.S. war in Iraq, I do not believe that we should try this failed approach again. Bombing will continue the bloodshed and enable violent, anti-government groups like the Islamic State to recruit supporters.

And we need to STOP arming and funding and training killers around the world. The very worst place to do this "training" of so-called anti-ISIS forces is Saudi Arabia. It would be a good idea to call out Saudi Arabia for their funding and support for ISIS, as well as their many human rights abuses.
