Stop Congress from fomenting another war

We need to flood our congressional representatives phone lines
with screams of ‘NO! NO! NO!’
Here’s a link to the actual bill

The House appears likely to vote on a bad resolution early next week. If you oppose starting a war with Iran then we must act now to oppose House Concurrent Resolution 362.

This resolution has 169 co-sponsors, including 77 Democrats and 92
Republicans. The resolution calls on President Bush to . . .

*Create an international blockade of Iran to prevent it from importing the
refined gasoline it needs to run its economy

*Subject all cargo entering or leaving Iran to stringent inspections

*Tighten economic sanctions against Iran

*Violate international treaties by prohibiting Iranian officials
not involved
in negotiating the suspension of Iran’s nuclear program from travelling
abroad.

If another country took such actions against us, we would consider
it an act of
war. In addition, passage of this resolution would end negotiations with Iran
in Baghdad that the administration has recently signaled it was prepared to
resume.

House Concurrent Resolution 362 is a major step toward war. It
would reduce the
opportunity for a negotiated settlement with Iran, and even worse, President
Bush could take this resolution as a sign that he has Congressional support to
attack Iran before he leaves office.
