Stop war with Iran

Dear Senators and Representatives:

President Trump's assassination of Qassem Soleimani, a senior Iranian military leader, is just the latest unilateral action by this administration that has brought us to the brink of war with Iran.

War with Iran would fail to achieve any of its aims, launch an entire region headlong into deadly conflict, and unleash untold civilian suffering. The blood will be on our hands — unless we, as a country, and you, as our political leaders, have the strength to stop it now.

Congress is the only branch of government that has the constitutional power to decide where and whether to send U.S. forces into harm's way. We urge you to act immediately to stop a catastrophic war with Iran.

Why is this important?

The Trump administration is leading the United States into an unnecessary and illegal war with Iran.

Since day one of his presidency, Donald Trump has pushed our country towards a war with Iran. He filled his cabinet with warmongers like Mike Pompeo; pulled out of the historic and successful Iran nuclear deal; embarked on a “maximum pressure” campaign that sent thousands more U.S. troops to the Middle East; and imposed crippling economic sanctions on Iran. The assassination of Qassem Soleimani, a senior Iranian military leader, is just the latest unilateral action by this administration that has brought us to the brink of war.

There is no greater urgency than right now, and we need you to get loud. Add your name and tell Congress to act immediately to stop a catastrophic war with Iran.

Reasons for signing

  • Trump is an orange narcissist who has to give someone a nickname just to remember who they are. Warren would bring the change that we so desperately need here.
  • no more wars
  • We do need to be in another war with a country that will lead to destabilization of the country and more likely to end up like Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya. We need diplomacy and peace, not wars and military confrontation!
