AUSTIN, TX (PRWEB) March 18, 2006 –
On the third anniversary of the start of the current war in Iraq, Texans for Peace reminds the President that he has been wrong from the beginning and “We have been consistent in our position about the events in Iraq, based on first-hand knowledge of the situation there,” said Charlie Jackson who has traveled to Iraq three times during this war.
As evidence of their position, versus that of the Administration, Texans for Peace provided the following excerpts from earlier reports:
Texans for Peace is demanding an change in the direction of the war in Iraq, including replacement of those who have been in charge with admittedly wrong strategies and tactics. “The only thing that doesn’t make sense is keeping those in charge who made such great mistakes in the past,” says Mr. Jackson.
Texans for Peace has active in the issue of the war in Iraq since Mr. Jackson’s first visit in 2002. They are currently planning a statewide “End the War in Iraq” petition drive in addition to a host of other activities to bring an end to the occupation and return Texas soldiers to their families.
