Help prevent a war on Iraq
- Blessings of Love dear friends,
In case you haven't sent a note to the White House through this moveon.org site, here is the link. Says they hand delivered on Aug. 28, but I'm sending another letter today. We are aware that an invasion on Iraq, is likely to elevate tension and conflict around the globe. Think of expressing this in your comment. War is not a solution, but a great travesty and aggrevation to Mother Earth and humanity all over the globe. Let's use love and intelligence in persuading people to be humane, and sent these words to the White House, as well.
The Bush White House is aggressively promoting war on Iraq, against
the advice of its diplomats, and without strong support from Congress,
the American public, or our allies.
Please join me in signing an online petition to oppose a war that would
likely undermine both national and world security. Let�s show our
representatives that they have strong public support to stop this war.
If you join me in signing today, your comments will be hand-delivered
to your Senators as part of a national day of action on August 28th.
Constituent meetings are being organized with Senate offices everywhere.

It's important that we speak out against a war in which many of our
young people, and likely many more innocent Iraqis, would die.
Even top Republican leaders are publicly questioning a war:
Brent Scowcroft, the former National Security Advisor, says a U.S.
invasion of Iraq "could turn the whole region into a cauldron and,
thus, destroy the war on terrorism." He also says "there is scant
evidence to tie Saddam to terrorist organizations, and even less to
the Sept. 11 attacks."
Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) says the CIA has "absolutely no evidence"
that Iraq possesses or will soon possess nuclear weapons.
Henry Kissinger says, "The notion of justified pre- emption runs
counter to modern international law, which sanctions the use of force
in self-defense only against actual -- not potential -- threats."
Kissinger also says, "American military intervention in Iraq would be
supported only grudgingly, if at all, by most European allies."
Dick Armey, the House Majority Leader (R-TX-26), says, "I don't believe
that America will justifiably make an unprovoked attack on another
nation. It would not be consistent with what we have been as a nation
or what we should be as a nation."
We've got to speak out too. Please join me and do your part, at:
