Peace Can’t Wait!

THIS FALL: is a crucial time for citizens to communicate with Congress, newspapers and magazines on all the issues of concern to us. We cannot lie dormant, waiting for this administration to leave office. We must demand action now:

END WAR: We must end the US occupation of Iraq and bring the troops home. General Petraeus will make his report, and Congress will decide whether to continue funding the Iraq debacle. They must hear from us: “Enough rosie projections and half-truths! Bring the troops home!” If Vietnam taught us anything, it is that Generals NEVER want to announce a reversal of policy or say, “It’s time to come home and have peace.” GWBush and war supporters claim the US could have won in Vietnam if it weren’t for cowards in Congress. They also want war with IRAN, and we must prevent THAT TOO.

IMPEACH: We must press for impeachment of Dick Cheney by urging support for Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s legislation H.R. 333, which now has 19 cosponsors. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Jucidiary Committee Chair John Conyers also need encouragement to impeach. The resolution’s three charges are that Vice President Cheney: 1). has purposely manipulated the intelligence process to deceive the citizens and Congress of the United States by fabricating a threat of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, as well as: 2). fabricating a threat about an alleged relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda, in order to justify the use of the U.S. Armed Forces against Iraq in a manner damaging to U.S. national security interests; and: 3). in violation of his constitutional oath and duty, has openly threatened aggression against Iran absent any real threat to the United States, and has done so with the proven U.S. capability to carry out such threats, thus undermining U.S. national security.

GLOBAL WARMING: Congress should quickly embrace a “Go-To-The-Moon” priority for reducing national production of Greenhouse Gases. America must embark on a journey into harmony with nature and our earth. The USA must fall in love with fuel-efficient vehicles; public transportation; proper design and insulation of buildings and homes; green roofing; railroad transportation; rooftop solar capture; preservation of wild spaces and protections of species diversity. Let’s love the earth and all that dwells therein: every leaf and creature is connected to humanity. Life and abundance lie in harmony with nature. Death and destruction lie in domination and exploitation.

These and other critical issues demand action now. So act! We’re the ones we’ve been waiting for!
