The Red Line on Iran
Now is not the time for launching a war against Iran, and we know the American public agrees. A recent survey by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs indicated that a full 70% of Americans are opposed to unilateral military action against Iran. Our politicians need to hear this opposition directly from you, their constituents. Some in Congress - who are being lobbied hard every day by familiar war hawks - continue to push the nation towards war, calling for an end to diplomacy and a return to the disastrous policies that led our nation into the swamps of Iraq. Our politicians should be pursuing diplomacy to end Iran's pursuit of a nuclear weapon, not saber-rattling for political purposes.
A recent report endorsed by more than 30 former military officers, diplomats and others explained that for a military operation to achieve more than a temporary setback to Iran's nuclear program, a ground war with Iran would be more costly than the Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined. Send a message to your member of Congress telling them you want diplomacy, not costly war with Iran.
