Physicians for Social Responsibility asks:
Have we learned nothing from Iraq?
Sadly, they write, many of our political leaders have ratcheted up the rhetoric regarding Iran and are openly discussing the possibility of war. We have seen this play out before and it doesn’t end well.
In March 2003, the U.S. began the invasion and occupation of Iraq. After nine years, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and thousands of Americans have lost their lives. As Iraq attempts to struggle to recover from a catastrophic sectarian conflict and devastated infrastructure — the hawks in our nation are eying their next prize.
It’s time for Congress to hear from you.
As citizens in this democracy, it is our responsibility to ensure our government does not attack another country in our name. While we should work with the international community to convince Iran to stop pursuing a dual-use nuclear program, we know that a war would lead to devastating health consequences. Write your Representative now to let them know that, as a constituent, you want them to urge diplomatic engagement with Iran. Take Action »
