awkwardly

Tuesday

Stan Goff has posted a petition online that you might want to sign or think about. "A pledge to abstain from voting for anyone who continues to approve funds for the war. If you agree with this, please give the url the widest circulation possible. The text is below, but I want to re-emphasize that signing requires going to the url itself."

Goff outlines why this tactic will be effective in a great post where he defines terms like Strategy, Tactics & Intelligence from a military perspective, then how to apply these ideas in a mission to stop the war.

To: U.S. Congress

Whereas: the U.S. military occupation of Iraq is a cruel and illegal occupation that has cost nearly 700,000 lives, shattered a viable society, and displaced more than a million people, and

Whereas: the occupation itself is the single greatest causative agent of inter-Iraqi violence, and

Whereas: the majority of Iraqis want an immediate end to the occupation, and

Whereas: the majority of Americans now want the U.S. out of Iraq, and

Whereas: the Executive Branch of the U.S. government has declared its intention to remain in Iraq, and

Whereas: the war will end when the Legislative Branch refuses to fund it,

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED:

We, the undersigned, pledge that we will abstain from voting in 2008 for any elected official or candidate who votes or declares her/his intention to vote to continue funding of the war, no matter the electoral consequences. The scale of this crime that is the war in Iraq and its urgency is such that it has become an issue that overrides all other issues, and we are pledging to become single-minded, single-issue voters on this matter.

Sincerely,

SIGN HERE
