Talking Points
  • As [a veteran/a military servicemember/someone in a military family], I understand all too well the costs of war.

  • That's why I'm joining other veterans, military leaders, their families, and a groundswell of everyday Americans from all walks of life to strongly oppose U.S. military intervention in Iraq.

  • After a decade of war, enough is enough. We've already paid a huge price in American lives and treasure. It is time to stop paying.

  • More than 800 American military personnel have already been deployed to Iraq. Especially with violence raging in the Middle East and around the world, we can't risk further U.S. military entanglement in Iraq that will only add gasoline to the fire.

  • There is no military solution to the chaos in Iraq. American bombings will make the deep and complex challenges facing Iraq worse, not better.

  • The president was right to end the Iraq war, and it would be a tremendous mistake to start another one.
