About Win Without War

Win Without War is a national leader in the fight to promote a more progressive national security strategy. Our campaign-style operation aggressively attacks right-wing distortion while pushing our elected leaders to stand up against the politicization of our national security.  Formed in 2002 to lead the first national campaign against the war in Iraq and the disastrous policies of the Bush/Cheney Administration, our coalition reflects the diversity of the progressive movement.

Today, we continue to go on the offensive, challenging those on the right who use fear to build support for their failed policies while holding our leaders accountable. We are currently working to bring our troops home from Afghanistan, rein in wasteful spending at the Pentagon, prevent a disastrous war with Iran, and protect and defend the rule of law in national security and foreign policy.

We are patriotic Americans committed to a US foreign policy that embodies our nation’s highest ideals. We oppose the over militarization of our foreign policy and its effects at home and abroad. We share the commitment to countering terrorism and weapons proliferation, but oppose the doctrine of unilateral military preemption. We believe that international cooperation and enforceable international law provide the greatest security for the United States and the world, and the greatest opportunity for people to live in free, healthy, and just societies.

Clinton Should Say More About Syria

By Stephen Miles, Michelle Dixon

Oct-19-2016 |

One of the biggest foreign policy challenges the next president will face is what the United States should do about Syria. By now, we all know the carnage a devastating war has brought to all sides of the conflict and the civilian population there. In addition to the security threat from the so-called Islamic State group, more than 400,000 people have been killed, 9 million have been displaced because of the war, and nearly 5 million of those have fled Syria all together – going mostly to nearby Turkey, Jordan or Lebanon...

    The truth is that Yemen's government lacks popular support. Its military has largely sided with the insurgents. Iran probably plays very little role. And the terrorists in Yemen are, at best, a side show to the main fighting...Read More »
