An Urgent Message from Daniel Ellsberg
The danger of a U.S. or Israeli attack on Iran -- either before the election or later -- is real and horrifying. It is crucial that we voice our opposition before it is too late.
I urge you to add your name to my own and to ask your friends to do the same.
We've been helping to prevent this attack for years, and we must not give up now.
-- Daniel Ellsberg

Any such attack would have disastrous consequences. And the dangers of such a catastrophe have never been higher.
A decade ago, government lies and media spin brought the disaster of the Iraq war. Don't let the same thing happen again.
RootsAction will deliver a petition to leaders of the U.S. and Israeli governments, insisting that all diplomatic avenues be pursued and opposing any military attack on Iran.
You can add your voice to this urgent appeal.
Military action against Iran would cause untold suffering and plunge the region into a new frenzy of massive killing.
We must categorically reject the threats of missile strikes against Iran coming from the United States and Israel.
When Senator John Kerry spoke on the last night of the Democratic National Convention, he declared that President Obama has promised "to tighten sanctions on Iran and take nothing off the table" -- a dangerous buzz phrase for threatening military attack. Mitt Romney's threats against Iran have been even more extreme.
We reject such threats from either party.
