This evening, President Obama will deliver his second State of the Union speech. Here at Peace Action, we'll be watching.

In the meantime, we don't have to wait until tonight to know the "state of the union." We already know it all too well:
- We have entered our tenth year occupying Afghanistan, making it the longest war in US history. According to a recent poll, a majority of Americans now oppose the ongoing war.
- Similarly, the tide is turning against military spending. Last week, a New York Times poll showed that a majority of Americans would favor cuts in the military budget over cuts to Social Security or Medicare.
Let's see what the President has to say.
Humbly for Peace,
Kevin M. Martin
