13 Years Ago…

On October 7, 2001, the first American bombs fell in what would become the longest war in America’s history. Today, while the headlines are focused on Iraq and Syria, it’s all too easy to forget that the U.S. war in Afghanistan continues to drag on with. As you read these words, 30,000 American men and women in uniform are still fighting – and, unfortunately, being wounded and dying – in Afghanistan. Earlier this year you signed our petition, now we need you to email the President directly.

Tell President Obama that it’s time to bring ALL our troops home from Afghanistan and finally end America’s longest war!

Last week, the U.S. signed the Bilateral Security Agreement with Afghanistan, ensuring that, tragically, the U.S. war in Afghanistan will drag on. For far too long, American men and women have bled and died in a fight that has no military solution. The fact that the future of Afghanistan requires an Afghan-led political solution means keeping U.S. troops in Afghanistan could be an obstacle to genuine progress.

After 13 years of war in Afghanistan, it’s time to say enough is enough! Bring all our troops home, now.

We have spent too much blood and treasure on this war already. Every hour, American taxpayers are paying $10.2 million for the war in Afghanistan. And while President Obama has announced a plan to draw down the number of troops in Afghanistan over the next two years, Congressional hawks like John McCain and Lindsey Graham are calling for tens of thousands of ground troops to remain in Afghanistan indefinitely. We can stop them and bring our troops home, but only if we stand up for peace.

Please take a minute to make your voice heard by emailing President Obama: It’s time to end our endless war in Afghanistan.
