March 19th marks 8 years of US war and occupation in Iraq, where despite President Obama’s claim that combat operations have ended, more than 50,000 troops remain, backed by tens of thousands of mercenary private contractors. This war has lasted longer than WW II and costs Americans about $3 billion each day. Let Washington know that you object to funding continued occupation in Iraq. Don’t leave this important job to somebody else!
