National Security Advisor John Bolton has threatened war with Iran. He’s sending warships to their doorsteps to “warn” the Iranian government that any out-of-line step will be met with “unrelenting force.”
Click here to email your Senators and Representative in the US Congress and urge them to co-sponsor and support a bill that would prohibit funds from being used for kinetic military operations against Iran unless Congress authorizes such an action.
By itself, deploying aircraft carriers and bombers to a region where the U.S. has been in a near constant state of war for decades might not seem like a big deal.
But alongside Bolton and Pompeo’s consistent moves to destroy any chance at diplomatic solutions — from the U.S. just designating part of the Iranian military a “terrorist organization,” to killing the Iran Deal last year — it's clear where we're headed and it’s not looking good.
The Trump administration, led by Bolton, is stoking the flames of war with Iran. And we must do everything we can to stop it.
John Bolton has been obsessed with waging war on Iran for decades. And his latest escalation towards military confrontation relies on the U.S. public being distracted with putting out domestic fires — allowing these huge strides towards war to go unnoticed.
If this sounds familiar, that’s because we’ve seen Bolton do this before. The Trump administration is, almost verbatim, using the same playbook used by Cheney and Bolton in the Bush administration to stoke a devastating war with Iraq in 2002.
We all remember how well that turned out, and we can’t let it happen again.
As of 5/8/19, there are no New Jersey or Pennsylvania Senators or Representatives co-sponsoring the bill.
