The U.S. has already spent over $1.1 billion bombing Iraq and Syria over the last two months. As we predicted, airstrikes have not degraded ISIS, as the terrorist group continues to immerse itself among civilian populations, increase its recruitment and gain more territory.
It’s not too late to stop this war before it becomes even more of a quagmire. Please write to your elected officials, then forward their responses to ReportBack@winwithoutwar.org or fill out this short online form so we know how to follow up with them.
Congress may vote on our latest war in the Middle East in November or December, right after the election. This will be the most consequential vote in Congress on war in over 12 years. In fact, for many Members of Congress, this will be their first real vote on whether or not to authorize a war. That’s why we need you to help us get them on the record now, before they vote, so that we can help stop congressional hawks who want to rubber stamp another costly, open-ended war in the Middle East. We need to know who is on our side, who supports endless war, and who we still need to convince.
One year ago, progressives organized massive pressure on Congress to stop a war with Syria, and we won. We can do it again, but first we need to find out where Members of Congress stand. When it comes to sending our brave men and women in uniform back into war, there’s simply no excuse – election season or not – for Members of Congress to not tell you, their constituents, whether they support alternatives to bombing or endless war in the Middle East.
Demand your Members of Congress tell you where they stand on our latest war in the Middle East!
