If you disagree with somebody, the proper way to resolve the conflict is to TALK and use DIPLOMACY and perhaps use a MEDIATOR.
The U.S. government sometimes — and especially Trump nowadays — chooses military violence instead.
That only backfires.
The U.S. keeps bogging itself down in unwinnable wars in many places.
These wars waste our tax dollars, which we should be spending for useful purposes.
These wars kill and injure many people in other countries.
These wars turn world opinion against us.
These wars subvert human rights and constitutional rights.
Trump has been trying to start a war against Iran.
It is TOTALLY UNNECESSARY — and would be a DISASTER.
It would be MORALLY WRONG in many ways.
Many articles have been written explaining why we must PREVENT Trump’s war against Iran.
The Trump regime’s reasons for war against Iran are baloney. See this article from April 11, 2019: https://lobelog.com/team-trumps-iran-war-rationales-are-nonsense/
Here is one from February 2019: https://www.peoplesworld.org/article/edging-toward-war-with-iran-dispatches-from-the-edge/
In February-March 2019 conversations occurred between a peace delegation and Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. See information here: https://popularresistance.org/Iranian-foreign-minister-javad-zarif-speaks-to-us-peace-delegation/
Senator Tom Udall and Senators from both political parties introduced legislation to PREVENT Trump from starting a war against Iran. PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AT THIS LINK to urge your U.S. Senators to support S. 1039 for NO WAR: https://act.winwithoutwar.org/act/tell-senate-no-war-iran?source=em20190423_1&t=5&akid=3453%2E372126%2ELvIJho
I sent this message to my U.S. Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell:
The Trump regime is trying to start a war against Iran.
Recently, Trump listed Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps as a foreign terrorist organization–the first time a government entity has been classified as such.
Iran was smart to respond by designating the U.S. Central Command as a terrorist organization and claimed that it will treat U.S. military forces in the Middle East as ISIS.
But THIS IS HOW WARS START.
I am greatly concerned that Trump is provoking a war against Iran. THAT WAR COULD ONLY END BADLY FOR EVERYONE, including the U.S.
ONLY CONGRESS has the constitutional authority to declare war.
As your constituent, I urge you to co-sponsor S. 1039 to PREVENT AN UNCONSTITUTIONAL WAR against Iran and to reassert congressional war powers.
