Petitioning NDAA 2013 Authorizes War Against Iran and 2 others

Legislation from congress moving us closer to yet another war!

This is an authorization for the use of military force against Iran. It ignores the warnings of both current and former U.S. top military brass who have spoken in opposition to the use of military force against Iran, including former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, and current Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta. A February 2012 poll demonstrated that less than 20% of the Israeli public supports an Israeli strike on Iran if approved by the United States. Congress must avoid the same mistakes it made in the Iraq war and reject any language that can be construed as authorizing war against Iran.

Urge congress to vote for diplomacy and NOT another war!

H.Res. 568
H.R. 4310, SEC. 1221. DECLARATION OF POLICY and SEC. 1222. UNITED STATES MILITARY PREPAREDNESS IN THE MIDDLE EAST

Congressmen and Representatives,

After looking over the sections titled 1221 and 1222, it is becoming clearer to the American public that legislation is being drafted to enable the swift attack and invasion of yet another middle eastern country. We oppose this aggressive stance for many reasons among which are the lack of financial resources, the lack of clarity in our foreign policy and the continued undermining of the constitutional procedure for entering war.

We do not believe that diplomacy has failed, and if it has, then our representation has failed us.

"This is an authorization for the use of military force against Iran.
