Is it so hard to believe that Democrats and Republicans in Congress would move towards war with Iran, even before President Bush does?

 

House Resolution 362 is co-sponsored by Democrat Gary Ackerman of New York and Republican Mike Pence of Indiana — the chair of the ultra-conservative Republican Study Committee. Their resolution demands that President Bush spearhead an international effort to create a land, air and sea blockade of Iran, both to prevent Iran from exporting oil and petroleum-based goods and to impose strict inspections on all of its imports.

 

Make no mistake about it, this resolution is only steps away from war with Iran. And it has serious momentum in Congress.

 

However, some members of Congress have begun to back away from this resolution, including Reps. Wexler (D-FL) and Frank (D-MA), who are vocally opposing it, and Reps. Cohen (D-TN), Allen (D-ME), and Clay (D-MO), who have removed themselves as co-sponsors.

 

This moment is an important one: Congress is pausing on this legislation, and we can get the House leadership to remove the blockade language if we act now.

 

We recognize that Iran poses real threats in the Middle East, but Congress must not act prematurely and make a bad situation much, much worse. We can’t afford another rush to war.

 

Click here to sign the petition urging House leadership to remove all blockade language and call for diplomatic engagement instead.

 

After you sign the petition, please be sure to tell a few friends.
