Will your Senator support war with Iran?

And Barb Schade forwards this:

Family and Friends,

Please read the below message and call your senators about your feelings about bombing Iran. If (WHEN) we bomb Iran, your young adult children will be drafted - reinstating the draft has already been discussed in Washington behind closed doors. Search the Internet if you doubt me, President Bush will, unless we stop him, bomb Iran and then put America under military control. That means no presidential election; America will have Bush for an indefinite period. Go to the white house web site and search "signing statements" and you will see that Bush signed a law back in 2003 that gives him the right to institute marshal law if we go to war with another country.

I am not kidding. I am not paranoid. Please read the message below and take whatever actions you think you must.

Thanks for your careful attention.

Dear Barb,

Don't Bomb Iran

Send a message to your Senator:
Don't Bomb Iran

Take Action

The Jerusalem Post broke the news this morning: George Bush intends to attack Iran in his final months in office. 

"The official claimed that a senior member of the president's entourage, which concluded a trip to Israel last week, said during a closed meeting that Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney were of the opinion that military action was called for."1
Congress has the power to stop him. There is a resolution already in the Senate called S. Res. 356. It's a straightforward and simple resolution that says, "A resolution affirming that any offensive military action taken against Iran must be explicitly approved by Congress before such action may be initiated."

Tell your Senator to support and fight for S. Res 356:

Today's story is just the latest to discuss the increasingly belligerent rhetoric of the Bush administration towards Iran. Just last week, President Bush compared anyone who seeks to negotiate with Iran to those who appeased the Nazis prior to World War II.

We only have a few months until our long national nightmare of the Bush Administration comes to an end.  But, it is abundantly clear that they intend on going out with a bang. It's time for the Congress to embrace its role as a co-equal branch of government and stop them before it is too late.

        Send a message to your Senator right now:

Thanks for taking action to stop another war,
