Comprised of veterans like Generals Wesley Clarke and John Batiste, as well as soldiers who have fought in Iraq, the website offers their perspectives on the current war and why they oppose it. One can find a spate of videos here. You can also see their latest ad directed at John McCain here.

Speaking of McCain, some of his own thoughts:

January 2003: “But the point is that, one, we will win this conflict. We will win it easily.” [MSNBC, 1/22/03]

March 2003: “I believe that this conflict is still going to be relatively short.” [NBC, Meet the Press, 3/30/03]

June 2004: “The terrorists know that this is a very critical time.” [CNN, 6/23/04]

December 2005: "Overall, I think a year from now, we will have a fair amount of progress [in Iraq] if we stay the course.” [The Hill, 12/8/05]

November 2006: “We’re either going to lose this thing or win this thing within the next several months." [NBC, Meet the Press, 11/12/06]

February 2008: "My friends, the war will be over soon..." [Ohio Town Hall Meeting, 2/25/08]
