You made a difference!

Dear liberty activist,

Thank you to the thousands of you who quickly responded to our December 10th
alert, "US military is NOT the UN's military."  You made a difference!

H.J. Res. 75 was scheduled for markup by the U.S. House Committee on
International Relations on Tuesday, December 11th.  The fourth resolve
clause of H.J. Res. 75 stated: "the refusal by Iraq to admit United Nations
weapons inspectors into any facility covered by the provisions of Security
Council Resolution 687 should be considered an act of aggression against the
United States and its allies."

Congressman Ron Paul, who is a member of the House Committee on
International Relations, quickly realized that resolve clause 4 would
accelerate the transformation of the United States military into the
standing army of the United Nations, and therefore, we should vigorously
oppose it.

Our alert "US military is NOT the UN's military" was sent to you early
afternoon, Monday, December 10th which included a hard-hitting commentary
by Henry Lamb http://www.sierratimes.com/archive/files/dec/10/henrylamb.htm

Just hours after our alert was issued, several thousands of you had already
sent a message or made a telephone call urging your U.S. representative to oppose H.J. Res. 75.  The International Relations Committee postponed their meeting for one day to change the legislation -- and that's what they did!

WorldNetDaily published three articles by Jon Dougherty chronicling what
happened:

Tuesday, Dec. 11th -- "Lawmaker decries potential Iraq attack"
http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=25629

Thursday, Dec. 13th -- "Committee softens language on Iraq"
http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=25660

Saturday, Dec. 15th -- "Iraq next U.S. target?"
http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=25692

Thanks again to the thousands of you who took action so quickly and to
Henry Lamb for writing his commentary on such short notice!  You made
a difference.  Just ask the members and staff of the International Relations
Committee.
