Does Congress Want to Bomb Iran?

We are hearing from our Congressional allies that they are hearing more from those who want war in Iran than those who want peace. Please write now and ask your legislators to support diplomacy.

After over a decade of two costly wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that have exploded our national debt and stretched our Armed Forces to their limit, we don’t need another war in the Middle East.

But war hawks in Congress like Senators John McCain, Lindsay Graham and Joe Lieberman are already beating the drums of war, with Lieberman saying it “doesn’t make any sense” to wait until Iran possesses nuclear weapons to take military action.

There is also concern that, despite huge opposition in the country, the Israeli government will conduct rogue strikes on Iran.

And yet, Congress is being overwhelmed by messages calling for war with Iran, and our allies need us to show that there is a broad base of support for diplomacy, not war. Congress needs to hear from us, the voice of reason, that there is time for diplomacy and no country should use military force.

The costs of a war with Iran would be catastrophic. According to a report compiled by former government officials, national security experts and retired military officers released this week, “achieving more than a temporary setback in Iran’s nuclear program would require a military operation — including a land occupation — more taxing than the Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined.”

Experts agree that even if — and that is a big if — Iran decides to build a crude nuclear weapon, there is plenty of time to act before they could complete the task, much less make one a missile payload or build a long-range missile system.

Please write Congress today to support U.S. diplomacy and to do everything in their power to keep Israel from using military force on Iran.

    The new problem for Mitt Romney that’s tearing up the internet

    Ronald, despite strong profits, Bain Capital is moving all 170 jobs at the Sensata Technologies plant in Freeport, Illinois, to China. The workers there have been fighting for months to save their jobs by trying to get people, especially Mitt Romney, to pay attention to them.

    This weekend they broke through, and made their saga one of the most widely shared stories in the world.

    Support the workers at Sensata Technologies by reading their story and sharing it over Facebook, Twitter, or another social network. We need to remind everyone what Mitt Romney’s economy would look like.

    Keep fighting,

    Contact your Representatives – End the War in Afghanistan & Prevent War with Iran
    This Friday, Congress will be voting on the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The NDAA commits $642 billion of taxpayer money to the military budget, with $88 billion authorized to continue the war in Afghanistan.

    DIVEST FROM THE ISRAELI OCCUPATION, AND ATROCITIES.

    Republicans are committed for more WAR. They will ignore the needs of America—&—Americans to support the atrocities of Israel. They cover-up the facts of Israel’s acts of WAR against the USA.

    Romney’s advisors are the same Zionist group of the Bush administration.

    We can not afford any more WAR, Global Banking, or out-sourcing of our jobs. Mitt Romney has no accountability. We (middle class tax-payer) will pay for private no bid contracts for security of private corporations

    foreign investments, and off shore accounts. While he will support further out-sourcing, and tax cuts for the RICH, foreign or domestic.
