I predicted, 4 years ago when the President commanded the invasion of Iraq, that this was simply the first step in the eventual pacification of the entire Middle East. Never have I wished I was more wrong than I am today, hearing the rumors that this loose cannon that we call President is planning on starting a war over Iran's purported development of nuclear weapons.
Starting a war with Iran is the last thing we need to be doing right now. We need to be engaging Iran in direct talks, not alienating the entire population by attempting a revisit of the 1953 coup that we instigated.
The warmongering and empire building needs to be stopped now. You must act to stop it, or our children and grandchildren will grow up knowing of the failure of representatives to act when the need was greatest; failed to stop a President who clearly has no understanding of the constitutional limits placed on his office.
