Tell your representative and senators to oppose bills that bring us closer to war with Iran, and to support diplomacy.
“If you like Iraq and Afghanistan, you’ll love Iran.”
That’s what General Anthony Zinni says about bombing Iran. So why is Congress pushing us closer to military confrontation?
As the U.S. prepares to restart negotiations with Iran, Congress is threatening to undermine these sensitive talks. Hundreds of representatives and senators are supporting a bill to lower the threshold for military action against Iran. How many disastrous wars do we need before Congress learns its lesson?
If we want to keep that number from growing, Congress needs to hear from us now.
The “get tough on Iran” crowd is in Congress’s inboxes, on their phone lines, and in their offices. There are lawmakers who are pushing for positive congressional action, but the pressure on them is intense.
Your voice is needed now to drown out the saber-rattlers. Take action today.
Congress must not back the administration into a corner, with no option left but another war that would be devastating for Iranians and Americans. Φ
