Military members opposed to the US involvement in Iraq gathered Monday to demand the withdrawal of American troops and prepared to present their appeal to Congress. More than 20 active-duty service members and about 100 supporters appeared at an event for Appeal for Redress, which calls for Congress to end the war. More than 1,000 military members have added their names to the appeal's list, which will be given to Congress on Tuesday. A speech by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., in which he asked his followers to speak out against the Vietnam War, was read Monday in what organizers called an attempt to illustrate parallels between that conflict and the Iraq war. Under the military whistle-blower protection act, military members can send appeals to members of Congress without reprisal.
