Another intervention is needed...

Americans must stop enabling this administration's addiction to gambling with America's human and financial resources.

We've lost 3,024 American lives while spending $360 Billion dollars (that's BILLION with a "B") on this poorly-planned and horribly-managed war. At some point, America must recognize this war as the money pit (and a body pit) that it is and call it a day. We may not have accomplished all that some wished, but there is nothing wrong with acknowledging that the goal of "winning" in Iraq is no longer in America's best interest.

America can no longer continue this gamble. We’ve experienced a horrific losing streak, our accounts are empty, and we’re borrowing from our grandchildren (including “borrowing” their parents… some which will never EVER be “paid back”). To continue gambling like this, to throw more of our Americans and our dollars into Iraq, is a desperation play.

Whether with chips or human lives, our country is headed for ruin if we don’t wake up and start recovery here at home.

Go here to help stop Bush's escalation in Iraq.
