“Americans Against Passage of HR 2956”
The Gathering of Eagles has a Petition, “Americans Against Passage of HR 2956” that should be of interest to anyone who supports the troops and the War in Iraq. Here is what the petition is about:
On July 12, 2007 Democratic leaders engineered a 223-201 passage of legislation requiring the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops to begin within 120 days, and to be completed by April 1, 2008. The measure envisions a limited residual force to train Iraqis, protect U.S. assets and fight Al Qaeda and other terrorists.
The vote generally followed party lines: 219 Democrats and four Republicans in favor, and 191 Republicans and 10 Democrats opposed.
FINAL VOTE RESULTS FOR ROLL CALL 624

QUESTION: On Passage
BILL TITLE: Responsible Redeployment from Iraq Act
What I find disturbing is that only “392” people have signed so far. I signed it when I got the email telling me about it. Then I sent out over 25 emails to others and told them about the petition. I asked for their support by way of signing the petition and then ask them to email as many people as they could about the petition seeking their support. I did not spam or ask someone else to spam.
This is a very important petition. Please sign it and ask your friends to support the petition by talking to their friends too.
