"The reality on the ground is that the longer we stay in Afghanistan, the more damage we create … It’s time for us to get out. - Graham Clumpner, former Army Ranger who served in Afghanistan from 2005 to 2006.
Members of the Afghanistan Veterans Against the War committee of IVAW are speaking out about the recent massacre of at least 16 Afghan civilians by a U.S. Army staff sergeant in a Kandahar village. They see the incident as just the latest example of the U.S./NATO failed military strategy in Afghanistan and are calling on elected officials to stop funding the war, which now costs taxpayers between $1 and $2 billion per week.
Take action with Afghanistan Veterans Against the War and other veterans by:
Send a letter to the editor of your local paper condemning the massacre and calling for an end to our occupation in Afghanistan.
See if your member of Congress is a co-sponsor of H.R. 780 sponsored by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), which calls for an end to funding of our troops in Afghanistan except for the sole purposes of their withdrawal. If your rep has already co-sponsored, thank them. If not, urge them to co-sponsor using our easy online tool. This is the first step in getting this bill re-introduced in Congress."
