Not one more drop

Dear Mr. President and Congress:

Don't go back to Iraq. We've already lost over 4,000 young men and women, wonderful young lives, and for what?

Try explaining a return to Iraq to the affected mothers and fathers, wives and husbands and sisters and brothers. The 4,000-plus lost lives could have been our leaders — doctors, humanitarians and teachers. We will never know.

We spent a fortune training those in the Iraqi army, only to see them run and throw their uniforms away. They don't deserve our help anymore, and not one drop of American blood should be spilled there.

Listen to the voice of your people.
