It's the week before Labor Day weekend and all of America is eyeing the weekend, ready to enjoy the last gasp of summer. All, that is, except MoveOn.org and the anti-war crowd. They targeted today - Tuesday, August 28 specifically - to once again try and pull the plug on Iraq.
Using smoke and mirrors, and with help from a complicit media and hundreds of paid political operatives, various anti-war groups will try and create the perception that all Americans are against this war, and that we are "losing" in Iraq.
When in fact, the news from Iraq-from the guys involved in the fight-is that we are defeating Al Qaeda, dampening the violence, and making great progress. General Petraeus and his new counterinsurgency strategy are working, and must be given time to succeed.
So, in addition to attending town hall meetings in your area and rallying your fellow veterans to attend "Vets on the Hill" on September 17 & 18, below are two more ways-this week-that you can help amplify your voice and overcome the voices of defeat.
What You Can Do This Week!
See the petition that we will be presenting members of Congress on the 17th and 18th of September. If you believe that General Petraeus deserves the time he needs to succeed, if you believe that Iraq is now the central front on the war on terrorism, if you believe that premature withdrawal from Iraq would be catastrophic - then we need your signature on this petition.
Please take the time to forward this email to your friends and family as well - and ask them to sign the petition. And for non-veterans, this is a great way to support our event on September 17 & 18.
Our strength is in our numbers!
EAGLES UP, EVERYONE !!!!
