The peace and justice and anti-war movements are stepping up the campaign for ZERO Troops in Afghanistan! According to news reports the U.S. government is practically begging the Afghanistan government to let the U.S. military remain in Afghanistan until at least 2024! We say NO! Bring the troops home! Bring the war dollars home!
Afghanistan President, Karzai, has said no U.S. troops in Afghanistan beyond 2014. But there is an upcoming election selecting a new Afghanistan President on April 5, 2014. All candidates have said they will allow troops to remain. The decision allowing American troops to remain in Afghanistan should not belong to either the new Afghanistan President nor President Obama, it belongs to the American people who, in overwhelming numbers, want our troops home now. We must call on President Obama to bring all troops home in 2014.
