End the War in Iraq Act of 2005


By Sue Udry, UFPJ

Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) today introduced H.R. 4232, the "End the War in Iraq Act of 2005"

Rep. McGovern's long-awaited bill cutting off funding for the war was introduced today!

The bill would allow Defense Dept. funds to be used only to provide for:

  • The safe and orderly withdrawal of all troops;
  • Consultations with other governments, NATO and the UN regarding international forces;
  • Financial assistance and equipment to either Iraqi security forces and/or international forces.

In addition, the bill would not prohibit or restrict non-defense funding to carry out reconstruction in Iraq

The following members (all Democrats) are original co-sponsors:
Frank, Schakowsky, Serrano, Velezquez, Woolsey, J. Lewis, D. Payne, Waters, Stark, C. Kilpatrick, Kucinich, B. Lee

In a conference call today with Peace Action, Rep.McGovern commended the work of all peace activists, saying that Iraq is only being debated because of our work. He noted "courage and intelligence is not a prerequisite for serving in Congress" and called on us to keep up the great work.

It may have no greater chance of immediate success than any of those Resolution of Inquiry attempts, but at least this effort, along with McCain's anti-torture proposal, is aimed directly at stopping some of the ongoing carnage and criminal activity.

I simply have to state George Bush is dumb. if continuing on with this war it will do nothing but stall even more, like it has been doing. Troops will continue to die and continue to kill nothing progressive will happen anytime soon or later. We should have never went to war. John Kerry should have became president! (:
