END THE OCCUPATION OF IRAQ.  Two years after “Mission Accomplished”, the U.S. has spent $300 billion to kill, wound, traumatize, and destroy the homes & livelihoods of hundreds of thousands.  This is not liberation.
 
THE WAR AGENDA HARMS US ALL Nearly half the 2006 federal budget of $2,130 billion is for the military. The U.S. has military bases in 130 countries while the Bush admin. plans for more war.  This does not support life .
