Don't Iraq Iran!

Trump is at the United Nations right now building a case for the U.S. and others to go to war with Iran. Sign our letter to the New York Times and Washington Post asking them not to be complicit in laying the groundwork for war with Iran, like they were in the case of Iraq. Tell them to debunk Trump’s lies and distortions, and to promote diplomacy.

Dear Editorial Board,

President Trump gave an inflammatory speech this morning at the United Nations General Assembly calling for member states to isolate and punish Iran, after accusing Iran of sponsoring terrorists and exacerbating tensions in the region. We urge you as respected journalists to hold the Trump administration accountable for this rhetoric, for pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal, for violating the diplomatic efforts of our European allies, and for making life miserable for ordinary Iranians through draconian sanctions.

We do not want another war in the Middle East. The media must not be complicit in selling a war with Iran the way it did with Iraq 15 years ago. You have the power to tell Americans the truth by providing them with facts. We ask that you do not give credibility to the distorted lies coming from the Trump administration, and instead hold them accountable for their dangerous imperialistic policies. We urge you not to help the government sell another devastating war to the American people, but instead bring to light the administration’s hawkish policies towards Iran.

We don’t want another Iraq.

Sincerely,

Who's signing

    Frederic Lassiter Jr. The criminal insane warmongering by Trunp, Bolton etc against Russia, China, Iran, and Syria, (to include many other nations) is rapidly spinning out of control and must me countered if humanity is to survive.

    It’s time to invest more energy and resources in preventing war, rather than letting rich old white men enrich themselves further by sending our young soldiers to die and kill civilians. This only creates more enemies who want revenge on the US.

    War with Iran would be the end of life as we know it-in America. As the rest of the country is lead by the nose by the complicit media and their partners in the security state, I am amazed at the total lack of awareness of what is about to befall us if we follow this ship of fools down the path of our own destruction. Let there be no doubt- this is www3, and we will not survive ‘intact’. Since most people have been ‘conditioned’ to see Iran as the ultimate ‘boogy man’, they don’t care what happens to them. If you think we can take on Iran and their allies Russia and China and remain unscathed, you are delusional. These countries don’t have to be our adversaries, but trillion dollar defense budgets require enemies. Wake up to our insane militarism America, before it’s too late.

    Stop amplifying the messages of arms manufacturers and their political allies, and the already powerful and wealthy who profit from war, and show us all that you CAN do a public service to humanity by GIVING PEACE A CHANCE.
