Suport the Troops

Currently Virginia's senior senator, John Warner, is working on a non binding resolution to oppose the president's troops surge.

No matter what happens, the troops surge will take place. Warner's non binding resolution will simply tell the soldiers who are a part of the surge, we don't support you.

On the concept of a troop surge, Lindsey Grahm accurately said the following.

“I believe General Petraeus’s new strategy of sending more troops and more economic aid, and improving the political climate in Iraq is our best chance for success, and I support his new effort. To my colleagues who believe Iraq is a lost cause, I urge you to have the courage of your convictions and vote to stop sending more troops into Iraq by cutting off funding."

“A resolution declaring the new strategy a failure before it is implemented is the worst of all worlds. It is a vote of no confidence in General Petraeus, will empower our enemies, and be demoralizing to our own troops.”

If you also want to see the U.S. Senate support our troops in combat, please go to sign up, and call your senators. No matter who you are, how old you are, or what your age, your voice and activism will help.
