The $275 million dollars spent daily on the War on Terrorism is a disgrace. War is child abuse, no matter which country or which home it invades.

President Obama announced in his acceptance speech in Texas, that he would end the war in 2009.

To date, $656.1 billion dollars have been allocated to the war in Iraq. The national, state, and local numbers provided are based on the full amount of funding approved to date for Fiscal Year 2009.

These numbers do not currently include President Obama's request for an additional $75.5 billion dollars for FY2009 war funding. When his administration releases the full budget in April 2009, these numbers will increase.

We, the undersigned, call upon the United Nation's Department of Peace/ President Obama, to end the Wars that are defacing our planet and diminishing our world's economy.

If change is to come for the United States, we must set aside all doubt and fear, taking to heart the words of one of our greatest leaders: "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter, and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."

~Abraham Lincoln~

In PEACE sons bury fathers, but WAR violates the order of nature, and fathers bury sons.

~Herodotus~

"Naturally, the common people don't want war......., but after all it is the
leaders of a country who determine the policy, and its always a simple
matter to drag the people along whether its a democracy, or a fascist
dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship...... voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.
That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked,
and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the
country to danger. It works the same in every country."

that the people they administer don't think."
