And call your Democratic representatives to object to the Democrats'

Congress exercise their Constitutional right to demand a vote on the
funding of any new US military action. See AP article below

WASHINGTON -- Democratic leaders are stripping from a military spending
bill for Iraq a requirement that President Bush gain approval from
Congress before moving against Iran.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi... D-Calif., and other leaders agreed to
remove the requirement concerning Iran after conservative Democrats as
well as other lawmakers worried about its possible impact on Israel,
officials said Monday.
The overall bill -- which requires that the withdrawal of U.S. combat
troops from Iraq by Sept. 1, 2008, if not earlier -- remained on
schedule for an initial test vote Thursday in the House Appropriations
The measure provides nearly $100 billion to pay for two wars and
includes more money than Bush had requested for Afghanistan and what
Democrats called training and equipment shortages. [ETC.]

About the Protest
March 19, 2007 will be the fourth anniversary of the Iraq War.
This conflict has already:
* Lasted longer than U.S. participation in World War II
* Claimed more American lives than 9/11
* Injured over 23,000 American service men and women
* Killed at least 50,000 Iraqis - and perhaps as many as 650,000
* Cost over $400 billion, which is over $1000 for every man,
woman and child in America
* Damaged America's reputation and inflamed anti-Americanism in
the Muslim world
While the Bush Administration refuses to change its mistaken Iraq
policies, we don't have to wait until a new President takes office to
end this insanity. The Democratic controlled House of Representatives
has the power to stop or reduce war funding in 2007.
