Brad Pitt and Walter Jones: Right on Afghanistan

Brad Pitt stars in a new movie called War Machine that presents the ongoing U.S. war in Afghanistan as something only a fool would ever imagine could be won. This new Hollywood film presents the U.S. military as hopelessly unconcerned with reality and destined never to choose to end a war that creates enemies in the name of "freedom."

There is, however, another institution capable of ending the war: Congress. Congressman Walter Jones (Rep., N.C.) has just proposed a not-completely novel idea: Congress should cut off the funding for any more U.S. war-making in Afghanistan.

We urge you to cut off the funding, not just for any escalation, but also for any continuation of U.S. war-making in Afghanistan. The time has come to say enough is enough. In fact, spending $800 billion largely on killing people in Afghanistan, generating enemies and causing environmental destruction while eroding our civil liberties and rationalizing government secrecy is more than enough. It is time to cut off the flow of cash.
