Urge President Obama to cancel the combined, massive joint US-ROK war game v. North Korea, which will start on Feburary 25, 2014 and continue until April 18, 2014.
The US Military Commander will be in charge of this provocative, threatening war drill, which will bring in more than 5,000 U.S. troops from outside of Korea, as well as mobilizing some 200,000 South Korean troops for field exercise. This will again raise dangerous military tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
Please support this urgent effort for peace by signing the petition and forwarding to others.
