      [CLW] What Does Cheney Want: War with Iran!
      Dear james m,

      Take Action! Urge your Senators to kill legislation that could lead
      to a war with Iran!

      The Senate has just voted 76 - 22 for a controversial and dangerous
      amendment that could provoke war with Iran.

      Sens John Kyl (R-AZ) and Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) offered an amendment
      that could unleash President Bush to use military force against
      Iranians in Iraq - and could easily set off a wider Middle East war.

      Just what Vice President Cheney wants.

      While Kyl and Lieberman eliminated the most provocative sections of
      the amendment that would have authorized force against Iran - thanks
      in part to pressure generated by Council for a Livable World - the
      amendment still is like throwing more gasoline into a highly
      flammable forest.

      Please write your Senators to thank those 22 Senators who voted
      against the amendment and criticize the 76 who voted "aye."

      While the Kyl-Lieberman amendment was toned down, it still could
      easily lead to a tit-for-tat escalation resulting in military
      confrontation between the U.S. and Iran.

      Council for a Livable World opposes Iran's nuclear weapons
      acquisition and objects to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's
      terrible rhetoric.

      Rather than escalating tensions, the U.S. should pursue smart, tough-
      minded dialogue and diplomacy.

      It is important that you write your Senators today and tell them to
      push diplomacy rather than provocation.

      Sincerely,

      John Isaacs and Guy Stevens
