Veterans For Peace (VFP) had planned a sit-in at Rep. Conyers office before he agreed to a meeting. VFP presented 22,000 signatures to Rep. Conyers, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee. Coincidentally, Congress referred the 35 articles of impeachment that Rep. Kucinich introduced on Monday to the House Judiciary Committee. Rep. Conyers has not stated any plans to move forward with impeachment.

Press Conferance This is a cut of the full

On June 11, 2008, members of the Veterans for Peace (VFP) organization held a press conference, at 1 PM, on Capitol Hill, demanding the impeachment of President George W. Bush. The event took place in room 1629 of the Longworth House Office building. Later in the day, the activists planned to meet with House Judiciary Chairman, Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), to personally deliver to him their “Petition for Impeachment” which, according to VFP’s President, Elliott Adams, contains “over 22,000 signatures.” Please check the VFP’s web site, for the result of that session and for future updates. The VFP was founded in 1985. It now has 7,000 members and 120 chapters around the country. This video contains excerpts from the press conference. A longer version of it will appear on Google later tonight.

some 50plus minutes long

Around the 14min mark is when Dennis comes in to speak to the Vets and one of the statements he makes is that if nothing is done he will bring his resolutions back into the House in a month, with 60 articles!

    But these guys once again show their absolute valor and heroic attributes for making sure everyone knows what they think is right for the Commander In Chief of the worst military debacle in US history.

    Sure, many less dead than in Vietnam, yet a war of profit for a few is even worse than a war of idiocy over a Cold War.

    IMO.

    was fought the wrong way.

    Still believe the U.S. could have fought North Viet Nam to a standstill, by cutting the Ho Chi Minh Trail and using South Vietnamese troops to secure the interior.

    The war in Viet Nam ultimately was fought at 5:00 p.m. in American living rooms in front of TVs.  The NVA knew this.

    Iraq is a much different deal.  Many folks in South Viet Nam liked Americans.  Few, if any, in Iraq like Americans.

  1. There`s no right way to fight a wrong war.
