Tell Congress & President Bush: Stop War on
Take Action Today - Tell Congress:
No War on Iran!
we write, Congress is on the verge of voting on Congressional Resolution
362. (read text here <http://stopwaronirancampaign.blogspot.com/2008/07/congress-to-vote-on-war-resolution.html>
This resolution, which has 220 co-sponsors <http://www.thomas.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d110:HC00362:@@@P>

military force against the people of Iran, with 'weapons of mass destruction' as
a justification. The resolution makes no mention of the U.S. National

the brutal invasion and occupation of Iraq, which has cost the lives of 1
million Iraqis and more than 4100 U.S. soldiers.
Resolution, which is paralleled by a similar Senate bill (S. RES 580), could
come to a vote at any time. Congressional leadership has assumed that there
will be little opposition to the resolution - a staffer in House
Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office said that it is expected to "pass like a hot knife
through butter." They need to hear from you today <http://stopwaroniran.org/petition.shtml>
to let them know that we will not be silent as they initiate another illegal war
