After an overview of the U S warfare situation, we will conduct panels. Questions at the root of removing United States armed forces will be discussed. Primary U S armed forces removal locations: Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other locations beginning by the end of 2011, if not sooner.
What is the cost in human beings of the wars on U S citizens and on Philadelphian women and children? Specifically, what is the human cost of United States JROTC and ROTC programs on women and children in loss of education, social services and medical care? How are wars using JROTC and ROTC personnel and affecting women and children in in the U S military? How do depleted nuclear energy weapons, drones, and other military hardware fit into the increased human costs on women and children trapped in the wars in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan? Is the U S government in human, health, sustainable, alternative energy relationships with oil-rich areas of the world? What can we do as U S citizens to get better information from U S media about JROTC and ROTC programs? or call: 267-259-7196 or 215-382-1531 for further information.
