Since the war started, thousands of Iraqi civilians have been caught in the crossfire. Hundreds more have died as a result of a massive U.S. bombing campaign.
According to the United Nations, the war has put over one million Iraqi children at risk of death from malnutrition.
As the danger grows for Iraq’s civilian population under siege, I am writing to ask you to join me in signing a Citizens’ Humanitarian Pledge.
Please join me and tens of thousands of other concerned Americans in sending President Bush a clear message: Americans will hold him accountable for the consequences of this war.
Join us in calling for a swift end to the war, for the protection of civilians, and for increased funding and access for emergency humanitarian assistance. Help ensure that humanitarian aid and reconstruction are administered by UN-led civilian authorities - not the U.S. military.
As we face what could be a protracted war, we must not only show support for our troops who have been put into harm’s way, we must also show our compassion and support for the victims of war.
