The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. @BruceKGagnon

U. S. MAYORS PASS WAR $$ HOME RESOLUTION IN BALTIMORE MEETING

Bring Our War $$$ Home Rally from William Hughes on Vimeo.


Maine's Lisa Savage leads off the Baltimore rally to Bring Our War $$ Home during the U.S. Conference of Mayors annual meeting. About 15 mayors have brought a Bring Our War $$ Home resolution to the meeting and as I type this they are preparing to have a floor debate over the resolution.

The campaign began here in Maine two years ago and has spread across the country since then. Bring Our War $$ Home resolutions passed in the Maine communities of Deer Isle, Portland, and School Administrative District #74 (Solon), followed by Northampton and Amherst, Massachusetts and, most recently, by Hartford, Connecticut.

See a news report here and here and here

Update: At 11:52 am today the U.S. Conference of Mayors overwhelmingly passed the Bring Our War $$ Home resolution. Now we need to get folks to take them to their local cities and towns for passage at those entities. It was the lead story on the CBS evening news tonight.
