*As the situation in Iraq deteriorates, the “Never Learn” caucus is  
demanding US military intervention in the form of ground troops, air strikes,  
Special Operations and weapons deliveries*. The unfolding tragedy in Iraq is  
a direct consequence of the illegal American invasion and occupation of that  
country. /The least helpful idea is for the United States to involve itself  
militarily in Iraq or Syria. /US military intervention, whether directly or  
by providing arms, will increase the suffering of people in those countries  
and enhance the risk of a wider regional conflict.

This coming week the House of Representatives is set to pass a $571 billion  
Defense Appropriations bill. /So long as our oversized military eclipses our  
domestic needs and the United States spends more money on warfare than the  
next eight countries combined, military action will continue to be the  
default response to international crisis/. Too many members of Congress claim  
to oppose war and then quietly pass outlandish military budgets./ /The  
proposed FY 2015 Defense Appropriations bill [2] far exceeds what is needed  
militarily to protect our country.

 *Please Call your Reps today and tell them:*

 * No to Military Intervention in Iraq or Syria !
 * No to $571 Billion FY 2015 Defense Appropriations bill !

*Some useful articles:*
