Building a New Movement Against Militarism

by Stephen Miles

The Nation, Apr-12-2017 |

Donald Trump bombed a Syrian government air base just a couple of weeks after releasing his budget plan for next year. The budget—with its call for a massive escalation in Pentagon spending, to be paid for with funds stolen from programs that fulfill urgent human needs—was met with outrage. 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

winwithoutwar.org, 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 »

Clinton Should Say More About Syria

by Michelle Dixon, Stephen Miles

U.S.NEWS, 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 Lies of John McCain

by Stephen Miles

Huffington Post, Jun-20-2016 |

In a disgusting moment of ‘straight talk’ from Senator John McCain (R-AZ) this week, the former Republican Presidential nominee claimed that President Obama was “directly responsible” for the violent and deadly carnage at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. The senior Senator from Arizona quickly backtracked, offering a Washington-style apology in which he clarified that he “misspoke” and didn’t mean to imply that President Obama was “personally” responsible, simply that it was his policies that led to the death of 49 people and the wounding of another 53...

Alternatives to Endless War: A Sustainable, Effective Response to ISIS

by Win Without War

Apr-05-2016 | Press Release

There is no military solution to the ISIS crisis. The U.S. has spent over $8.8 billion conducting 10,000 military strikes in Syria and Iraq over the past 20 months, but the threat from ISIS in the region remains formidable. Instead of pursuing the illusion of military solutions, the U.S. and its allies should prioritize political solutions. Below are examples of the many alternatives available... Read More »

We Can't Bomb Our Way to Peace

by Stephen Miles

USA Today, Jun-11-2015 | Article

It is painfully clear that there is no U.S. military solution to the deepening crisis in Iraq. Deploying 450 more American servicemembers — in addition to the 3,000 already there — will not bring peace to Iraq nor heal the bitter sectarian divide fueling the conflict... Read More »
