NO WAR with IRAN !

Even as the drumbeat for war with Iran grows louder, there has been scant attention paid to the costs of another war.

No war with Iran
Click below for a sample script and the number to call:
Before we start another unnecessary and costly war, policymakers should understand what it will do to our military, to our economy and to our national security.
Take action now!
Don't let Congress ignore the consequences of attacking Iran .

That is why progressive anti-war champion Rep. Barbara Lee has asked her colleagues in Congress to co-sign a letter to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and the Office of Management and Budget Acting Director Jeffery Zients, asking them to provide a report detailing the projected costs of a potential war with Iran.
The deadline for co-signing the letter is tomorrow.
Making the call today is vital for two reasons.
First, we have heard from our friends on Capitol Hill that members of Congress are not hearing from constituents who want to avoid an unnecessary and costly war with Iran. So we should use every opportunity to demonstrate that constituents will be shocked and angry if we casually start another costly and unnecessary war.
Second, if we bomb Iran, it will set the entire Middle East on fire, send oil prices through the roof and our economy off a cliff — something our nation simply cannot afford.
But the current clamor for war entirely ignores this reality. So we should support efforts like this to highlight the very serious consequences of attacking Iran.
The more members of Congress who co-sign Rep. Lee's letter, the more likely it is that the request for a report will carry weight with the officials who receive the letter.
Please take a minute to pick up the phone today and make a call asking Rep. Fincher to co-sign Rep. Lee's letter. Click the link below for a sample script and the number to call:
Thank you for all you do,
Underdog = Don Jones.
