When it comes to Iran, it's not just Bush we need to worry about.
220 House Democrats and Republicans have co-sponsored a bill that approves an act of war against Iran.
As early as this month, the House may vote on H.Con.Res. 362. This non-binding resolution demands that Bush initiate an international effort to prohibit petroleum exports to Iran and impose stringent inspections on everything entering or departing Iran. This could be construed as a provocative measure to impose a land, sea and air blockade on Iran.
Without United Nations authority, such a blockade would be an act of war. The Iranian response is likely to be the use of force to break the blockade, which could spark a chain of events leading to a broader war. The drumbeats for war continue to get louder – even from members who oppose the Iraq war and should know better than to approve a blank check for Gerge W. Bush.
Urge your Representative to vote AGAINST H.Con.Res. 362. The United States has tried war in Iraq – it didn’t work like the hawks thought it would. Threats of force against Iran are not working. It's time to try strong, tough-minded diplomacy with Iran. War with Iran will undoubtedly bring disastrous consequences. Do your part to help prevent it today. Contact your Representative now!
Without United Nations authority, such a blockade would be widely seen an act of war. The Iranian response is likely to be the use of force to break the blockade, which could spark a chain of events leading to a broader war.
The U.S. and Iran share common interests in a stable Iraq, Middle East, and Afghanistan. Threats of force against the country are not working, and any act of war against the country would undoubtedly bring disastrous consequences to the United States, Iran and the entire region.
Please vote against H.Con.Res. 362, and work for direct and comprehensive talks, without preconditions, between the U.S. and Iran.
