> Dear Friends,
>
> (December 9, 2009) Congressman Dennis Kucinich is circulating two  
> "privileged resolutions" to trigger votes to end the wars in  
> Afghanistan and Pakistan.
>
> Congressman Kucinich, in a written release, earlier today stated:
>
> "Today, I will begin circulating two privileged resolutions which  
> will trigger debate and votes on a timely withdrawal of U.S. troops  
> from Afghanistan and Pakistan."
>
> "Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution of the United States  
> makes it Congress' responsibility to determine whether or not we go  
> to war or stay at war. Consistent with Article I, Section 8, the  
> privileged resolutions will invoke the War Powers Resolution of  
> 1973. I ask for your support of these resolutions, which will be  
> introduced in the House in January."
>
> "Yesterday, with the U.S. Secretary of Defense at his side, the  
> President of Afghanistan declared that his country's security  
> forces will need financial and training assistance from the United  
> States for the next 15-20 years."
>
> "We cannot afford these wars. We cannot afford the loss of lives.  
> We cannot afford the cost to taxpayers. We cannot afford to fail to  
> exercise our constitutional right to end the wars."
>
> "Please sign onto the privileged resolutions to end the wars and to  
> bring our troops home."
>
> "Stand up for our troops. Stand up for the truth. Stand up for the  
> Constitution and Congress' responsibility."
>
>
> Please Contribute – Together we can help end the war.
>
> Thank you,
> The Re-Elect Congressman Kucinich Committee
