Chelsea Manning will be celebrating her 6th birthday in prison on Dec 17. She was given a 35 year sentence for disclosing information through WikiLeaks that the US government considered “classified.” They haven’t contested one piece of information in the trove of documents and videos released by Manning, but they simply didn’t want the public to know what was happening in the “War on Terror.”

War is not the answer. We should:
- Welcome and fund refugees forced to flee their countries to avoid war and death inflicted by others.
- Isolate ISIS by beginning to demilitarize the region. Immediately end all arms shipments to the Middle East. Weapons shipped to U.S. allies and “opposition forces” have fueled the Syrian War and often fall into ISIS’ hands. Suspend US bombing and military actions and withdraw US/NATO troops now.
- End material and financial support to ISIS and Al Qaeda and their clones. End the U.S. -Saudi Alliance, that has been so critical to the emergence and funding of these forces.
- Support self-determination for Syria. Only Syrians can decide the fate of their country.
- Negotiate an agreement in which Russia, the U.S., Iran and European countries stop fighting to achieve their own strategic goals under the guise of “fighting ISIS” and instead together put their full weight behind diplomatic efforts to end the bloodshed in Syria and Iraq.

Drawing on stories, voices and ideas from a rousing band of military-related antiwar activists, the book gives an uncensored, grunt's-eye view of the occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan, while conveying the dramatic struggles many soldiers face returning home.
