Winter Soldiers

If you are a Veteran of the War on Iraq, an active duty soldier, or someone at risk of being sent back by stop-loss or national guard service you need to know about Iraq Vets Against the War.

The Iraq war is based on lies and deception, violates the U.S. Constitution, and violates international law. Corporate profiteering is driving the war in Iraq. Unnecessary civilian casualties are a daily occurrence in Iraq. Service members are facing serious health consequences due to our Government's negligence. Soldiers have the right to refuse illegal war.

The war dehumanizes Iraqis and denies them their right to self-determination. The Iraq war is robbing us of funding sorely needed here at home. Our military is being exhausted by repeated deployments, involuntary extensions, and activations of the Reserve and National Guard. This combination of racism and war profiteering is causing critical morale problems as soldiers question why they are fighting. This combined with the psychological and moral crisis many soldiers experience due to combination of war stress and justifying their actions to them selves, is damaging to our military and this reduces national security.

Listen to the Winter Soldier transcripts online, then make up your own mind. What is the right thing to do?

The reasons and rationale given for the invasion were fraudulent. The occupation is now a primary motivation for the insurgency and global religious extremism. We can no longer afford to fight this war of choice because national security is compromised. Due to the war in Iraq we have a broken military, we have lost our 'moral' authority, and now live in a more dangerous world.
