NO US Military Intervention in Iraq!

nowarwomanThe St. Louis Instead of War Coalition adamantly opposes any further military intervention in Iraq.  The involvement of the US government and military have done nothing but contribute to the destabilization of the region.  From the years of sanctions to the full scale invasion to the years long occupation, ENOUGH is ENOUGH!  We stand against any further military involvement, including US ground troops, military air strikes, drone strikes or aid in the form of weapons or military equipment.

Please consider signing the recent petition that Peace Action is circulating to Tell President Obama: “Don’t Try to Put Out the Fire in Iraq with Gasoline!”
