Stop The Webb Amendment

This idiot tried this once before and he fell flat on his face. Now that we have even more momentum, let’s trounce this ignoramus troll once again.

Dear Vets for Freedom member,

Yesterday, 250 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans took to Capitol Hill and delivered a strong message: support General Petraeus and don’t tie his hands with burdensome legislation. It was an extremely successful event and we will send a wrap-up email tomorrow.

However – this afternoon – we need our members to reinforce the great work that our vets did yesterday. Today Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) is introducing an amendment that-on the surface-looks good because the amendment would require a fixed amount of rest time for troops between deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.

But in actuality, the amendment is a backdoor attempt to legislate an end to the war in Iraq. The Pentagon, General David Petraeus, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and leading military officials all agree that this legislation is nothing more than a “slow bleed” on our current strategy which would actually tie the hands of the Generals on the ground and make it nearly impossible to continue to defeat Al Qaeda in Iraq.

This is just another sneaky tactic to force America into surrender.

We need your help! Please call 1-888-362-2813 today and an operator will connect you with your Senators. Tell them:

  • The Webb Amendment is wrong and hurts America‚Äôs military.
  • Now is not a time for politics and posturing in the U.S. Senate.
  • Don’t legislate strategy in the U.S. Senate – leave that up to the Generals on the ground.
In addition to your Senators, take a moment to call the following 6 Senators. They are considered “on the fence” in this debate-and need to hear from veterans who understand how important it is to complete the mission in Iraq.

Senator George Voinovich (R-OH) (202) 224-3353
Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) (202) 224-6665
Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) (202) 224-4254
Senator John Sununu (R-NH) (202) 224-2841
Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) (202) 224-2523
Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) (202) 224-4944

Today, The Politico reported that one of the leading anti-war activists said this about Senators who support the war in Iraq, “We’re going to smash their heads against their base and flush them down the toilet.”

Friends, the radical anti-war groups have never been more serious and today they are getting help in Congress from Senator Jim Webb.

The question is: who do you trust to fight the war in Iraq: General Petraeus or Congress?

Please join me in calling today…your actions will back up the 250 veterans who took the Hill yesterday!

Move out and Draw Fire!

MoveOn should do just that. Move on to another country that already has communism as its dogma.
