Iraq War Blogswarm

The Iraq war must be stopped. To this end, I add my voice.
I discovered the blogswarm on Mary Ellen's Divine Democrat. I invite all to join here.
The Statement of Purpose

This blogswarm will promote blog postings opposing the war in Iraq and calling for a full withdrawal of foreign occupying forces in Iraq. Five years of an illegal and catastrophic war is five years too many. On the March 19 anniversary of the conquest of Iraq by the Bush Administration, there needs to be a loud volume of voices countering the pro-war propaganda from far too many politicians and corporate media outlets.

1) Post a comment with your blog's title and URL. If you join up by the fifth anniversary of mass actions against the war, February 15, 2008, you will be included in the listing of "Charter Blogs" in the right-hand menu. There will be updated listings of all participating blogs in future postings here.

2) Optional: add one of these graphics to your blog.

3) Please write a post on March 19 against the war.

4) Spread the word among other people who want an end to this illegal and obscene war.

Thanks two crows! you are a good one. I joined on Brother's site I think it was. I expect we will have a lot of company on the 19th.

hi, aap--
yeah -- the more the better.
I certainly won't say 'merrier' -- there's nothing merry about the fact that this is necessary.

so many dead. so many maimed. so many families with loved ones not coming back -- not ever.
and, so often people speak about 'the 4000 dead' as if only the American casualties matter.

certainly they matter -- but, I daresay, the 1 million and counting casualties in Iraq matter to their families, too.

and, if ANYTHING will ensure that the Iraqis follow us home, those dead children, parents, brothers, sisters, grand parents, soldiers and non-combatants will be the reasons why.

And it gets worse as you know because that is not to mention bush's created 2 million Iraqi immigrants and vastly more decrepit and unstable standard of living for those taking the risk of staying it Iraq!
