From the Gay Liberation Network
Just when negotiations between Iran, and U.S and other countries appear to be making progress towards easing tensions-and stopping a new war- some in Congress, like Illinois’s Sen. Mark Kirk, Sen. Richard Blumenthal and 57 other Senate co-sponsors, are intent on wrecking the peace negotiations. Most others haven’t summoned the courage to stand up to the war makers by publicly denouncing their bill and pledging to vote against it.
The new bill S. 1881, would effectively torpedo peace talks with Iran by imposing harsh new sanctions on that nation. Worse, it would commit the United States in advance to militarily supporting Israel if that country decided to unilaterally attack Iran. Put simply, it is a blank check for war.
From Iraq to Afghanistan to Libya, over the lat few years we’ve learned something of the horrors and the uselessness of war, and we refuse to repeat them. Support a peace agreement with Iran.
