Enough is enough! Stop the lies! Stop the war!

listen to glenn greenwald and sign the petition...

Tell the DC Establishment: Enough!

In 2006, the Americans elected a new Congress to end the occupation of Iraq. Despite this mandate, the political leadership in both parties have refused to heed the public will. Worse still, these leaders, as well as various reporters and think tank 'experts' have been rolled by a PR campaign to justify the military surge by General David Petraeus, a man who has consistently touted progress in Iraq since 2003.

By signing this peitition, you are demanding that reporters acknowledge Petraeus's long record of errant judgment in Iraq. You are also demanding that politicians to heed the public will and vote against this occupation, by refusing to vote for any bill that funds the war that does not contain binding timelines for withdrawal that compel Bush to remove troops. Anything else enables the occupation of Iraq until at least the end of Bush's Presidency. Enough is enough. The noxious stew of DC 'experts', journalists, and political leaders of both parties that keep troops in Iraq needs to hear our anger.

We will deliver this petition to the Democratic leadership in Congress.

tell them that they are there to represent the people who voted them in to office, not those with power and money and entrenched interests who are dedicated to a state of permanent war...
