Today marks 19 years since the horrific 9/11 attack. Since then, the 
US has been engaged in endless conflicts ranging from the wars in 
Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen to brutal sanctions on Iran, Venezuela 
and North Korea. More than ever, we need a president for peace. Help 
us flood the Trump and Biden campaign inboxes with demands that they 
endorse a pro-peace platform!



Today marks 19 years since the horrific 9/11 attack that resulted in 
the ongoing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, wars that cost the US $6.4 
trillion dollars. And for what To kill thousands of US soldiers, 
millions of Iraqis and Afghans, and spread destruction throughout the 
Middle East and beyond.

Nineteen years later, polls have repeatedly shown that the American 
people are tired of these endless wars that both parties are 
responsible for. That's why Donald Trump is suddenly painting himself 
as the anti-war candidate. He recently accused Pentagon leaders of 
perpetuating pointless wars to benefit military contractors, and just 
days ago announced the withdrawal of thousands of troops from Iraq 
and Afghanistan.

us in telling Trump that he isn't fooling us. Over the past four 
years, he has only doubled down on the worst parts of the United 
States' destructive foreign policy: increasing the Pentagon budget, 
sidestepping Congress to sell more arms to the Saudis, vetoing the 
Yemen War Powers Resolution, bringing us to the brink of a war with 
Iran, imposing deadly sanctions on Iran and Venezuela. Right now he 
is working on a deal to sell arms to the UAE, and is creating a new 
Cold War with China.

Clearly, Trump is no dove and neither is Joe Biden, who just 
yesterday announced that he does not foresee cutting the Pentagon 
budget if elected. In fact, he says that military spending would 
likely increase under a Biden Administration.

We can't spend another four years with a militarist in the White 
House. Today, on the 19th anniversary of 9/11, with the 2020 election 
less than two months away, we are calling on both Donald Trump and 
Joe Biden to adopt a truly anti-war platform and run as a president 
for peace. 
the candidates now and demand they pledge to be a president for peace!

Neither major party candidate can be counted on to promote what the 
American people want: an end to US militarism that creates so much 
death and destruction and robs us of the resources we need to solve 
our real problems, such as the climate crisis and this pandemic. 
That's why we need your help to flood Trump and Biden with demands 
that they pledge an end to our militarist approach to foreign policy 
and endorse CODEPINK's 10 point President for Peace platform.


Trump and Biden: we need a president for peace. Adopt a truly 
anti-war foreign policy! We are not under any delusions. We know it 
is unlikely that Trump or Biden will radically shift their platform 
just weeks before the election. But they have to feel our pressure. 
And we have to build our power as an anti-war movement. That's why we 
have several great ideas for how you can promote nonviolence beyond 
the ballot box. Take the following actions:

    * How did your representative vote on historic legislation to cut 
the Pentagon budget by 10 percent 
out here and if they voted the wrong way, hold them accountable!
    * Add your name to the letter initiated by CODEPINK and signed by 
100 organizations urging the presidential candidates to 
the Monroe Doctrine and establish a Latin American foreign policy 
based on the principles of non-intervention, mutual respect, and 
working together as good neighbors.
    * Sign CODEPINK's 
to Biden: Disarm from nuclear weapons and create a vision for peace. 
    * Tired of Israel's war on the Palestinians and filled with dread 
as COVID is spreading in Gaza 
Congress to demand that Israel lift the siege!
    * Early on in the COVID-19 pandemic, USAID suspended its aid to 
war-torn Yemen. 
Congress that the aid must be restored and expanded immediately in 
order to save lives!
    * Sanctions kill! 
action for diplomacy with Iran.

Two decades since 9/11 and we have been engaged in endless wars. It's 
time to stop. Join us working toward peace.
