Active Duty Troops Call For Immediate Iraq Withdrawal
Good, the more voices heard the better!
U.S. troops on active duty call for Iraq withdrawal
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More than 200 active duty U.S. armed service members, fed up with the war in
Iraq, have joined an unusual protest calling for withdrawal of U.S. troops from the country, organizers said on Wednesday.
The campaign, called the Appeal for Redress from the War in Iraq, is the first of its kind in the Iraq war and takes advantage of Defense Department rules allowing active duty troops to express personal opinions to members of Congress without fear of retaliation, organizers said.
"As a patriotic American proud to serve the nation in uniform, I respectfully urge my political leaders in Congress to support the prompt withdrawal of all American military forces and bases from Iraq," states the appeal posted on the campaign's Web site at www.appealforredress.org.
"Staying in Iraq will not work and is not worth the price. It is time for U.S. troops to come home," it adds.

They just see something that the US has no business being involved in. Watch and see, that DOD rule that tacitly allows this will soon be withdrawn.
