Stop Funding the Iraq War

To the Editor:

Re “Harry Reid Stands Small on Iraq” [Sept. 10]:

To say that the Democrats don’t have the support to stop the war isn’t true. Bush is going to come to Congress wanting billions more in war funding. Democrats have the votes to cut off war spending. To fund the war is to support it. I’m tired of funding the politicians who are funding the war, so I refuse to give money to politicians of either party who keep voting for the war.

This week they are going to lie to us again and tell us that we’re winning. We are not winning, because to win we have to defeat the people we are trying to liberate.

After five years we have been told over and over that we are almost there, when the reality is that it keeps getting worse and worse. The time has come to shut it down and get out of there. If you really want to stop the war, then cut off the money.
