I'm participating in an Internet campaign to stop the war in
Yugoslavia before ground troops are deployed, and I'd like to
invite you to join me.

Please forward this message to any friends, family, co-workers,
neighbors, or other people you know personally who may be

Then go to and sign the petition.
It will be submitted directly to your representative in the U.S.
House and to both your U.S. Senators.

Every day that this undeclared war continues, it becomes more
likely that ground troops will be deployed, and that we will
find ourselves in another Vietnam-style quagmire. As the war
escalates, it will become increasingly difficult for politicians
to admit that they made a mistake, end the war, and bring our

escalate, ground troops will be eventually be deployed, and
American casualties will rise. If we don't want that to happen,
we must persuade our representatives in Congress to stop the war

Please forward this e-mail to everyone you know who might be
interested in helping, but please don't send it indiscriminately
-- spam will only hurt our campaign.

Then go to and sign the petition. 

Thank you.
