Resolution calling for ending the Iraq War

Resolution calling for ending the Iraq War

Whereas the midterm election is widely viewed as a rejection of the Bush Administration’s Iraq war.

Whereas the vast majority of the American people and the citizens of Michigan support a swift conclusion to the US military engagement in Iraq War.

Whereas the people of Michigan and the 15th Congressional District look to the Democrats elected to Congress to lead the fight to end the war in Iraq.

Whereas the President of the United States, George W. Bush is supporting an escalation in the war in Iraq and the increase in the US troop presence in Iraq.

Whereas the war will continue and soldiers and civilians will needlessly perish unless the Democrats in Congress move now to end this war.

THEREFORE HEREBY WE AGREE AND DECIDE

The City of Ann Arbor Democratic Party (AADP) hereby calls and petitions our elected Senators and Representatives to the Congress of the United States of America, to approve and authorize ending the Iraq war, in particular the funding and financing of the Iraq war, in a manner that safely brings our troops home immediately.

The AADP additionally asks the Chair of the Party on their behalf to send the following letter Senator Carl Levin, Senator Debbie Stabenow, and Congressman John Dingell:

Dear <name of elected official>

It is now time for the Iraq War to end. Despite the election results in November 2006, the Bush Administration seems hellbent on implementing the McCain Doctrine–a serious escalation in the number of US troops deployed in Iraq. The American people, the people of the State of Michigan and the people of the 15th district in Michigan support an end to this conflict forthwith.

The Bush administration will not end this war. No good can come from the additional loss of life an escalation in the war is likely to cause. Due to the malfeasance of the Bush administration, the US has no viable option other than to as swiftly as possible end US military involvement in this most misguided engagement.

We strongly encourage you to use all tools at your disposal to compel the US government to end our nation’s involvement in the Iraq war.

sincerely,

<Chair>, Ann Arbor City Democratic Party

Resolution submitted by Dana Barton, Tim Colenback and Kathy Linderman as amended and passed at the January 13, 2007 meeting, according to my notes (official meeting minutes not published or accepted as of this writing).
