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 the U.S. Senate right now, 800-828-0498, 800-459-1887 or 800-614-2803, and tell them BRING THE TROOPS HOME NOW.

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.

Turn Up The Heat On Congress To OPPOSE The Surge
After the embarassing spectacle of Republican Senate sponsors voting against their own resolution, the heat is really on the House this week to stop a further escalation in Iraq. We all know that a non-binding resolution is not nearly enough, it will take a courageous confrontation to actually derail the Bush/Cheney military disaster machine. But you can say exactly that when you call and write your House members this week. And it would not hurt to also berate those senators who acted with such cowardice when they had their chance.

We have all week to lean on them with our voices leading up to a vote at the end of the week, and there are already indications that the Republicans are finally caving in to the will and sanity of the American people. So let's rally our friends and neighbors to call the toll free numbers and submit the easy one click action pages so no member of the House can pretend they did not hear from us in sufficient numbers.

To put the car in reverse, first you have to put on the brakes and stop it. And after we do, we will press even harder to get them to start bringing our troops home.
