Tell Congress: No war on Iran

It looks like Democrats and Republicans in Congress would move towards war with Iran, even before President Bush does. House Resolution 362 demands that President Bush spearhead an international effort to create a land, air and sea blockade of Iran, both to prevent Iran from exporting oil and petroleum-based goods and to impose strict inspections on all of its imports.

Make no mistake about it, this resolution is only steps away from war with Iran. And it has serious momentum in Congress. However, some members of Congress have begun to back away from this resolution, giving us a window of opportunity to change it.

I just signed a petition calling on the House leadership to remove language from the bill calling for a military blockade, and to stress diplomatic engagement instead -- I hope you will too.

Please have a look and take action.
