Petition: Senate: No Backdoor to Iran War!
President Obama has said that the tide of war is receding.
But some people in Washington don't want the tide of war to recede.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has introduced a bill that would try to "pre-approve" U.S. military support for an Israeli military attack on Iran. If Senator Graham's bill is passed, the Senate will be on record saying that if Israel attacks Iran, the U.S. should join in. The decision to go to war is very grave. It should be carefully made by the U.S. government, not outsourced to a foreign government.
Please urge your Senators to oppose Senator Graham's bill.
Senator Lindsey Graham and AIPAC are pushing a Senate bill (S.Res.65) that would endorse an Israeli attack on Iran and say that the U.S. should support such an attack militarily and diplomatically. This policy would allow the Israeli government to decide by itself to drag the U.S. into a new war.
The bill also attacks President Obama's policy of saying that the U.S. goal is to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, claiming falsely that the U.S. goal is to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon "capability," a vague "red line" that could be used to justify war anytime. President Obama is pursuing diplomacy with Iran, and should be encouraged to intensify diplomatic efforts. He should not be pressed to intensify military threats.
Senators should not support Graham and AIPAC's attack on President Obama.
