Sadly, TODAY--March 20th---- is the 6th anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq War, and this is a six-year milestone with no known end in sight. President Obama has made a pledge to end the war, but his deadlines mean nearly two more years of conflict. The continued conflict has left its mark on and its citizens, and its reverberations will be felt for generations. Additionally, spending billions of US taxpayer's money to fund this war has negatively affected our economy.
But what will a complete withdrawal look like? How will we know if we're moving ahead — or falling behind? I urge you to call your senators and representative today and ask:
- What does the removal of "all" troops actually mean?
- What measures will we use to chart our progress?
- What will we leave behind?
