Victory for Peace

Congressional Democrats this week shelved the sinister House Concurrent Resolution 362. That resolution, a high priority for AIPAC, would have imposed “stringent inspection requirements on all persons, vehicles, ships, planes, trains and cargo entering or departing Iran” and barred any export of refined petroleum from the U.S. to Iran. In other words, it would be a de facto military blockade, an act of war that would surely turn bloody soon enough.

Those champing at the bit for war with Iran won’t be resting; Democrat Rep. Gary L. Ackerman of New York, who wrote the resolution, told the Washington Times, “We’ll resubmit it when Congress comes back, and we’ll have even more signatures.”

Antiwar.com readers shouldn’t rest either. Make sure your congressmen know that you don’t want a conflict in Iran to satisfy wild ambitions for eternal war for eternal democracy. We’ve been keeping you up to date on these backdoor to war maneuvers. Make sure that you stay in the know about how D.C. is working to manipulate us into more. They don’t rest, unfortunately. Neither do we, and neither should you.

  2. I consider AIPAC to be America’s number one enemy. I can’t think of one single thing America gains from its relationship with Israel.

  3. Anyone opposed to an attack, a blockade, or crippling sanctions against Iran can also get updates and action alerts from the Campaign for a New American Policy on Iran.

    It’s a broadly trans-partisan group that in June held an event on Capitol Hill that featured Barr, Paul and a bunch of “lefty” U.S. House members, calling for diplomacy, not an attack or sanctions against Iran.

  4. Whatever Israel wants, Israel gets. Israel wants war on Iran well, the U.S. will obediently wage that war. Bets anyone? Gary L. Ackerman. Ackerman, Ackerman hmmm. The Rep. from New York any relation to Spencer Ackerman of the “Attackerman” crap-o-la? You know, that Washington Independent champion of “dual-citizenship” by way of Israel. That Ackerman. Those Ackerman’s do love that championing for Israel stuff. Love ya Crackerman, love your work.
    respectfully,
