Urgent Message to Congress: Put The Brakes On Bush's Iran Plans; Reject Nuking Iran

by Rob Kall


It is time for the US congress to speak, to pass a motion-- a message to the president that they do not authorize him, based on their authorization to go into Iraq, to attack Iran, to start another war.

It is time for the antiwar movement to get out in the streets with one message. Congressional representatives must make it clear to the Bush whitehouse that they have cut off their authorization of any further warmaking.

We know that there is now a risk that the chickenhawk neocons who wrote of grandiose visions of empire before Bush was President will take their fantasies, in spite of their massively incompetent failure in judgment and action to date, to the dangerous next step of nuclear aggression.

It is essential that the congress take away the excuse the whitehouse has used for repeated violations of laws and abuses of the constitution and the bill of rights. The only way to do that is to pass a resolution stating that Bush and his team have had their authorization to wage war revoked-- period.

There will be wrangling on the effect this has on the ability to protect the nation from terrorists. The right wing echo chamber will say that we are sabotaging the President's ability to protect the nation. The fact is, that the president and his advisors have lost the trust of Americans. We have every reason to distrust Bush and his team. They don't deserve to have access to the nuclear trigger.

I'd suggest that congress also make it clear that they don't permit Bush to spy on Americans, that he must follow the laws that he has been abusing. But I hesitate because the rubber stamp corrupt republicans might try to turn this into a license for Bush to violate the law.

So, for now, I suggest we get out in the streets and demand that our legislators tell Bush, with a formal motion, that he is NOT permitted to attack Iran, that his license to wage war has been rescinded.

    Hi Dissent,

    Do you think - assuming that they really are planning to strike my country- such things can stop them? Isn't western anti-war movement a minority?

    I am going to stop listening to news - it is really depressing - I need to concentrate on my study, instead of thinking of possible bloodshed in Iran ...

  2. Hello Anonym. I send you my prayers and good wishes from the West. These people are criminals and I don't know what it will take to stop them. But we must try everything we can. There are many, even in the US Military, who are opposed to a military attack. We must hope and pray that their view will prevail.

    Yes, it is a terribly depressing time. The world is going through a very dark time. All any of us can do is to think positively and get on with creative tasks.

    The anti-war movement is not a minority. Just as with Irak the majority of people in the west oppose another war. But we are being manipulated by evil warmongers who do not respect freedom or life. Ultimately, we all become their victims unless we stand up to them.

    My Best Wishes to You, trusting and praying that you and your country will be protected from the evil ones.
