Is MoveOn Manipulating Members To Vote For More War?
We realised from the off what was happening with Pelosi and her Democratic Party pals -- even though we're thousands of miles away across the Atlantic.
So as soon as we saw this in our inbox, and since it makes so much sense to us, we decided we'd help spread it.

MoveOn is polling its members in a biased fashion about the Iraq supplemental -- they are doing their best to manipulate their members into supporting the slow bleed in Iraq that will result if the Pelosi-Obey supplemental is approved.
More than 200 members of the U.S. military have died since the Democrats had the power to end this war. How many more? How many Iraqis?
If you are a member of MoveOn vote to oppose the supplemental and tell MoveOn to join the rest of the peace movement in pressuring the Democrats to end the war -- not to continue it.
What's wrong with the supplemental?
The deadline for removal is not until August 31, 2008.
And, even then loopholes will allow as many troops as President Bush wants to stay in Iraq to "capture or kill" Al Qaeda or other terrorists and to train Iraqi soldiers.
These are loopholes big enough to drive a war through!
The requirements for sending combat ready troops can be waived by the president so exhausted troops that are inadequately trained can be
sent into this quagmire.
And, the supplemental does not restrict the president regarding using the funds to attack Iran. In other words the supplemental is business as usual.
The Democrats are voting to stay the course in the guise of a withdrawal plan.
In fact, the Democrats have cleared the path for war with Iran.
Tell MoveOn -- join the peace movement and tell the Democrats to end the war.
