The growing threat of military action against Iran was made very clear last week as President Bush used his prime time “surge” speech to issue threats against the people of Iran.  This speech was immediately followed by a U.S. attack on the Iranian consulate in northern Iraq and the arrest of Iranian consular personnel.

As this time, the U.S. has deployed two full carrier groups to the Persian Gulf.  Each carrier carries more than 80 combat aircraft including F/A-18 Hornets, F-14 Tomcats, SH-60 Seahawks, S-3B Vikings, E-2C Hawkeyes and EA-6B Prowlers, capable of flying more than 150 strikes a day.   In addition, each carrier group includes guided missile cruisers, fast frigates, guided missile destroyers, and submarines, all equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles.

We know from reports last year that the Pentagon’s Central Command and Strategic Command planners are already identifying targets, assessing weapon-loads and working on logistics for an attack and that the planned strikes could kill thousands of Iranian people.  We must mobilize now to against the threat of a new war.  Over the next few days and weeks, Stop War On Iran will be organizing meetings, rallies, and protests across the country to build a movement to stop another disastrous war. 

So far, we’ve gotten more than 20,000 signatures on the Stop War On Iran petition, and we’ve sent nearly half a million petitions to Bush, Cheney, Congress, and Halliburton.  But we must do more–the threat of an imminent attack is growing.  We need your help.  We cannot count on politicians (of either major party) to stop the war–we must build a grassroots movement to stop another brutal war.
