Stop Iran war preparations
The Times of London reports that President Bush has asked for emergency
funding to equip the B2 bomber to carry the 30,000 lb. Big Blu bunker
busting bomb. As weapons expert John Pike comments, "this request has Iran
written on it."
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article2753953.eceWe simply must take this danger seriously. "Oh, they won't really do
it" is wishful thinking, and it enables Bush and Cheney to bring us to the
brink, at which point, whatever they now intend, they may feel they must go
"forward" to preserve U.S. "credibility."
Please call our Senators and your Representative (Baron Hill if you are in
the 9th District) and ask them to withhold funds to equip the B2 with Big
Blu. Also, they should cosponsor legislation to bar the president for
attacking Iran without specific Congressional authorization (S. 759, H.R. 3119).http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?tab=summary&bill=h110-3119
