Bush Hits New Record Low in the Polls A number of polls released last week show there is no stopping Bush's downward spiral. In a poll from the PEW Research Center, his approval rating has fallen to 38% and only 29% are satisfied with the way things are going in the U.S. The Wall Street Journal and NBC News also released a new poll with a 39% approval rating and only 28% stating they feel the nation is on the right track. And perhaps hardest hitting of all is the latest poll by Fox News, where Bush gets a 40% approval rating.

Citizens Hold Leaders Accountable Members of the group Military Families Against War are holding a Peace Camp on Downing Street protesting the decision to deny them legal aid in their campaign to hold Prime Minister Tony Blair accountable for the Iraq war.

Meanwhile in the U.S., a poll commissioned by After Downing Street has found that 50% of those surveyed agree that if Bush lied about reasons for going to war, then Congress should consider holding him accountable by impeaching him. Contact your representatives and urge them to move for impeachment.

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.
Like what happened to "our" creature al Qaeda in Afghanistan). And the death toll continues to rise...
Write your senators and tell them: "Enough! U.S. out!! Iraq has shown it can curb ISIS by itself!"
