CAWAII is dedicated to educating the voter about the danger of Senator McCain expanding the Iraq War into Iran
Berwyn, IL (PRWEB) October 21, 2008
A new political action committee, Citizens Against War In Iran (CAWII) has been formally launched online by Dr. Robert Marshall, MD. The committee has been registered with the FEC as a 527 group and is dedicated to avoiding war with Iran and bringing all US troops home from both Iraq and Afghanistan within 12 months. Just in time for the coming election, Dr. Marshall hopes to persuade voters to vote for Barack Obama in November.
"CAWAII is dedicated to educating the voter about the danger of Senator McCain expanding the Iraq War into Iran," according to founder Dr. Robert Marshall. "Unlike other anti Iraq war sites, CAWII chooses to educate voters and citizens with humor."
A variety of humorous videos supporting Marshall's stance can be found on his website. "Political information laced with humor -- that's how we hope to reach the undecided voter," says Marshall. "Because of John McCain's views on the Iraq War, we hope undecided voters will choose Barack Obama for president."
Founder Robert Marshall, MD, is an Illinois physician specializing in Radiology. A Vietnam veteran, he sees many parallels between the war in Iraq and the Vietnam War. His concern is that war with Iran is a natural progression for many politicians, including John McCain. After noticing that his specific views were not being addressed by existing anti Iraq war sites, he decided to found CAWII. In fact, Marshall's views are somewhat unique as Robert Marshall has been an active Republican and was even the Republican nominee in the 1998 race for an Illinois seat in the House of Representatives.
Although there are many anti Iraq war sites, few have the focus of Citizens Against War In Iran. The mix of humor and information is designed to appeal not only to independents but also supporters of 3rd party candidates and even dissatisfied Republicans. Videos feature Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney, Reverend Wright and others and will be released periodically between now and the election on November 4th
