Today, while the world was watching the inaugural celebrations, Iraq Veterans Against the War ran their first television ad to stop the war.  Right after President Obama was sworn in, it aired on NBC.

Seen by millions, it drove the point home that we need to end the occupation now, and it will take those who supported the new president during his campaign to get elected to bring the troops home.

This is a historic step for an anti-war organization created by war resisters, who are determined to reach all of the American people and let them know that occupying any country is wrong.  Keeping soldiers there will only cause them more peril. 

Watch the video, donate to IVAW to help them get this out again!  Spread the word about this so it makes front line in yahoo and google.
