Did someone tell you that U.S. military intervention in Iraq was over? Not true: we're at it again. This time the pretext to drop bombs is "curbing ISIS" (which was created by the U.S. in the first place, to overturn al-Malaki in Iraq and then Assad in Syria, and is now out of hand.

Write your senators and tell them: "Enough! U.S. out!! Iraq has shown it can curb ISIS by itself!"
