What the United States did to Iraq must not be done to Iran!
The danger has been dramatically escalated that the United States will launch yet another catastrophic war -- this time against Iran.
Such a war could come by a deliberate decision, or through a series of provocations, reprisals, and misunderstandings. The latter scenario has been made more likely through threats and the positioning of weapons and troops.
President Trump has called attacking Iraq "one of the worst decisions in the history of the country." Click here to sign a petition telling him not to make a decision that could be even worse.
Congress has the power to prevent this looming crime against humanity. Click here to email your Representative and Senators (for U.S. residents only) telling them to cosponsor the bills that would block this war and to take other necessary steps to move us in the direction of peace.
A war on Iran would be a war on a large and well-armed nation. It would be a war very likely to bring in other nations on both sides. That sort of catastrophe would dwarf other recent disastrous wars.
If such a war happens and we survive it, apologies won't do us much good. Years after the 2003 attack on Iraq, some (but not most) of the members of Congress and the media who voted for and promoted it apologized.
Some of the same officials and outlets have supported new and ongoing wars on Yemen, Libya, Somalia, Afghanistan, Syria, and elsewhere. The disaster of a war on Iran could compel apologies, but what we need is instead not to do it.
