Tell the Candidates to bring the troops home and bring peace to Afghanistan

McCain and Obama are both calling for more troops in Afghanistan. But the Rand Corporation (the Pentagon’s largest think-tank) has published a study showing that a military response to terrorism is actually the least effective approach and police and political responses are more effective: http://www.rand.org/pubs/research_briefs/RB9351/index1.html

We urge you to call or email the campaign offices of both Senator McCain and Senator Obama and tell them you want a surge in diplomacy, not war.
