Flag pins and lipstick, the stuff of American politics these days, have pushed an honest debate about the war in Iraq off the front pages of the traditional media.
It's been a while since the Mission Accomplished banner was unfurled. Now, one trillion dollars and tens of thousands of dead and wounded later, the price of oil has tripled and our economy has been run into the ditch. And if the surge is "working," it has worked particularly well for Iran's Ahmadinejad, who recently enjoyed a comfortable night's sleep in one of Saddam Huseein's palaces in downtown Baghdad.
Next weekend, with the same type of grassroots effort we used to fire up the debate two years ago, we can help turn the focus away from lipstick - and back to Iraq.
On Saturday, September 20, Million Doors for Peace will launch a door knocking campaign in all fifty states, reminding voters of the cost of the Iraq War and the importance of bringing our troops home. Neighbor to neighbor, door to door, together we will make sure the politicians and the media don't forget how we got into this war - and how we are going to end it.
Let's change the debate on September 20th by taking the message directly to our neighbors.
