There were no terrorists in Iraq to go to war AGAINST, except ones the Bush and Cheney themselves elevated by their reckless occupation. And continuing the occupation there will just breed two more local insurgents for every one they pick off in a photo-op bombing.

It's time for Congress to fufill the promise of the November elections to stop the war in Iraq, and the only assurance we have that they will actually do that is if we CONTINUE to call and write them, again and again, until they finally realize we in fact expect them to do it.

Here are three toll-free numbers you can use to call your own members of Congress right now, 800-828-0498, 800-459-1887 or 800-614-2803, and tell them NO ESCALATION.

Or you can get their direct dial numbers and fax numbers right down to the district level by clicking on "Lookup Phones" in the instant lookup form to the right. All new members of Congress have been fully updated.

Tell Congress To Confront Bush With A Resolution Opposing Escalation In Iraq
George Bush decided to send more troops to Iraq months ago and not a thing has changed his mind since. For all his babble about conditions on the ground, and listening to the generals on the GROUND, he has just canned or reassigned all who opposed his proposed new military escalation in Iraq, and is instead importing a guy from on the WATER from the other side of the globe. He literally had to look that far to find an ambitious sycophant craven enough to sign onto his increasingly desperate folly. What a swell choice for desert guerilla warfare, a naval commander.

There are resolutions possibly pending to demand redeployment of the troops or to cut off funding for the war. We would support any of them. But of course Bush will ignore Congress. The problem is that if Congress attempts to restrict the way funds are spent, Bush will dash off another diametrically perverse signing statement and assert authority to do the opposite anyway. And as for troop deployments, he will laugh off any attempt by Congress to tell him how to run HIS war.

Therefore we propose strategically that there FIRST be a resolution opposing an increase in troops in Iraq, to draw a line in the sand, hopefully to preempt, but at least to respond directly to the announcement we all know is coming. While other resolutions may garner large support, this is a resolution that could potentially result in an enormously lopsided vote. Even Oliver North and George Will are speaking out against Bush's surge insanity. Then WHEN Bush defies the unanimous will of Congress, which he WILL, we will have set the stage for immediate consideration of impeachment, which is the only ultimate cure. Once the battle lines are clearly drawn, George Bush AGAINST us all, everything else will follow from there.
