We're Still at War

I was thinking lately about whether or not Obama promised an end to the war. I know he said that he would stay in Afghanistan and try to weed out the Al Queda and Taliban. He used the same word, "win", when speaking about Afghanistan. But I remember different talk about Iraq. A withdrawal, and a quick one. Neither seems to be happening.

I did come across an article this last week that sounds interesting, and if true, might be a sign that this administration is thinking about taking a different approach in Afghanistan. You can read about this remarkable train of thought HERE.

The disappointment of so many that voted for Obama, as they saw him as an end to the war(s), is real. Personally, I'm waiting for someone to tell me what "winning" is in any war, let alone these wars we are involved with now. Do you win when all are killed? When all surrender? When their "side" puts down their arms?

Write to your elected officials in House and Senate today. Call their offices. Write and call the White House and tell them you want an end to being at war. Fax them with a letter. Do it every day.

Write the White House:

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Think on this: It might more important to be pro peace than anti war.

Peace to all.
