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.

But Trump’s illegal cruise-missile strike, ostensibly in response to a chemical-weapons attack on a Syrian town in Idlib Province, largely knocked the budget outrage off the agenda... Read More »

Donald Trump Hates America

By Win Without War

Jan-26-2017 |

Donald Trump is about to sign an Executive Order slamming shut America’s doors to those most in need and ending America’s commitment to religious freedom. These new orders — banning Muslims and halting all refugee resettlement — take the first step in the Trump Administration’s agenda to criminalize faith, nationality, and people of color. This agenda flies in the face of the American values that have defined us for more than two centuries... Read More »
