This past weekend, World Can’t Wait held a national meeting in Berkeley CA. Here is how I began the meeting:
About six weeks ago, Bush got approval and funding from the Congress for a secret directive authorizing a range of operations, including assassinations, against the Iranian government. According to Andrew Cockburn on May 2, the area "covers actions across a huge geographic area – from Lebanon to Afghanistan – but is also far more sweeping in the type of actions permitted under its guidelines – up to and including the assassination of targeted officials… A Marine amphibious force, originally due to leave San Diego for the Persian Gulf in mid June, has had its sailing date abruptly moved up to May 4." That’s tomorrow. It’ll take them about a month to get there.
This preparation is real, the threat of a new attack must be taken extremely seriously – and there is NO opposition to this coming from within the halls of power or from the democratic presidential contenders. Hillary Clinton threatened to "totally obliterate" Iran and Obama’s only objection was that "using words like obliterate doesn’t actually produce good results… I think the Iranians can be confident that I [too] will respond forcefully." Vanity Fair wrote a month ago that the only thing standing between the US and an attack on Iran was General Fallon – and just days later he was forced to resign.
The Bush program is still shaping the world – and everything they have put in place for the last seven years is what is setting the stage and the terms for all of official politics today.
As we said in January, "George Bush is unrelenting in his determination to drive the savageness of his agenda into the next administration". Politics as usual will not meet the enormity of the damage that has been done. Can the world wait? Hell, no! And do we still need to bring to a halt this whole program and direction? Hell, YES!
This is a time for moral clarity and fearless determination. The horrors that we came together to stop are not over – and we can’t be over either. Read more.
World Can’t Wait made these plans to raise the alarm on US plans v Iran:
Hold meetings and forums everywhere schools are still in session.
Get Emergency response networks organized in case of an attack.
Encourage showings of the new film: Iran Is Not the Problem
Stay tuned for a one page handout you can use….and more plans from World Can’t Wait on this and other key issues.
