As a socially conscious primate I'm committed to creating a better world than the one we have. We're now into year six of the Iraq war and year seven of the war in Afghanistan. Organizations and community members nationwide will be taking to the streets from Thursday, March 19 - Sunday, March 22 to insist that the occupations end and that no more service members or civilians be killed in this campaign.

Find an event in your city for the anniversary on March 19 and check your local Indymedia for a march this weekend.

While the Obama administration has announced the withdrawal of all combat troops by 2010, in reality it is following a preexisting Pentagon plan to shift some combat forces to Afghanistan (which is now rocking out of control) and renaming the existing combat brigades "training and assistance brigades". These troops would then continue to carry out missions in Iraq in much the same way that the "military advisers" did in Vietnam. The Pentagon has been authorized to have as many as 50,000 such troops in Iraq until long after the deadline. We're not out of this yet.
