We are at war. Again.

On September 22, the U.S. launched the first attacks of a new, long-term war in Iraq and Syria. We need to say “no”—loudly, strongly and persistently—to this new U.S. war in the Middle East. Please write to the President and to your Members of Congress today.

13 years of military intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq have shown us that U.S. military force is not an effective means of fighting terrorism. Recent analyses show that U.S. airstrikes in Iraq have not degraded ISIS, and may be increasing local support for the extremists. The Syrian people have suffered through three-years of civil war; the last thing they need is more bombing.

With military action underway, Members of Congress, the media and the public are under pressure to rally around our latest war. But now, more than ever, decision makers need to hear that war is not the answer. Tell them that we want the U.S. to halt military action and pursue alternatives to bring those responsible for these crimes to justice and to end the ongoing civil war in Syria.

Please take action today:

1. Contact your members of Congress and the President

2. Share this message—on Facebook, on Twitter, and by forwarding this email—to encourage others to act.

We need to stop the bombs. We also need to tell decision makers that there are alternative, better ways to address the threat of ISIS. You don’t put out a fire by pouring gasoline on it.

President Obama has already committed to military action, but Congress could stop this from becoming a long-term war. Congress already explicitly stated that their approval of U.S. aid to Syrian rebel groups does not authorize new military strikes. And Members of Congress are voicing concerns about proposed legislation that would authorize this new war. Right now, Congress and the President are considering what to do next, and they need to hear from you that bombs are not the answer.

We look forward to working with you in the next few weeks to urge President Obama to stop this bombing. At the same time, we’ll be on Capitol Hill pushing for Congress to reject the proposal for a new, endless war on terror.

One Year Later, The World is Safer

One year ago, diplomats were locked in a room hammering out the final details of the landmark Iran nuclear agreement. In Iran thousands of centrifuges were spinning, inspectors had limited access, and the threat of a war between Iran and the United States remained dangerously real. Today, every pote[...]
