Join Groups Opposing Planned US Attack on Iran
May 30, 2006
George W. Bush and the neocons have begun preparations for a miitary attack on Iran. Such an attack Iran could occur soon or it could be timed to take place closer to the November elections, to sway votes toward toward the Republicans. If you or your group is not yet working on this issue, hopefully you will be soon! Here are some contacts.
ORGANIZATIONS ALREADY TAKING ACTION ON IRAN
Bush and the neocons could attack Iran very soon; or they may wait until closer to the elections, to try to rally voters to keep the Republicans in power in congress. If your group is not working on this issue, hopefully you will be soon!
Even a conventional attack on Iran, if resisted by Iran, could spiral into regional or even world nuclear war.
This poses the most serious crisis since Russian leaders repeatedly threatened the United States with possible nuclear war during the 1999 US/NATO attacks on Serbia.
