    From CREDO

    The next few days are critically important for those of us who want to avoid an unnecessary and costly war with Iran.

    Iran has come to the table for negotiations about the future of its nuclear program, with the next round of multilateral negotiations scheduled to take place in Moscow on Monday and Tuesday.

    But the Obama administration is under tremendous pressure to abandon diplomacy with Iran, and follow a path that would make war inevitable. And much of the pressure is coming from warmongers like John Bolton (an ambassador to the United Nations under George W. Bush), who want the talks to fail.

    We need to speak out now to ensure that President Obama knows the American people support diplomacy, not war.
    Many in power seem to have learned nothing from the catastrophic mistake and tremendous moral failure that was the war in Iraq.

    There is already dangerous momentum to begin a war of choice with Iran. And should the Moscow negotiations break down or bear no fruit, the drumbeat for war will only grow more intense.

    Those who would welcome a war with Iran are trying to suggest that the window for a diplomatic solution is rapidly closing.

    But both American and Israeli intelligence services agree that Iran neither has made a decision to build a nuclear bomb nor currently has the capacity to do so. So there is no short-term imperative to wage war.
    To his credit, President Obama is clearly not rushing to start another war. But many members of Congress, including many Democrats, are pushing him to offer nothing meaningful to Iran until Iran gives the United States and its allies everything we want.

    Fundamentally, this kind of negotiating strategy would set us up for failure.

    While there is no easy solution to the challenges we face with Iran, it is imperative that we pursue diplomacy in good faith and give diplomatic solutions the time they need to bear fruit.

    And that means being open to a slow but steady move away from the brink of war through mutual concessions.

    In an election year, when many of President Obama's traditional allies are either opposed or highly skeptical of his strategy, President Obama must know that there is full-throated support for diplomacy that can prevent an unnecessary war.

    Tell President Obama: We support diplomacy with Iran, not an unnecessary and costly war. Click the link below to automatically sign the petition:

    If your against more war, please consider looking this up and signing the petition. Lets hope we don't go to war again like the Israeli's want us too, because I for one don't want to see anymore young lives lost or young peoples futures ruined for anymore godamned Neo Cons wars that serve no more purpose than did the failed Iraq war.

    HMMMMM !!! your "Calm down" is kind of a shot to the right, coming from someone who still is an apoligist for the obviously failed Iraq war, Please tell this to the families of 5000 dead US soldiers, tell this to the 25 thousand to 30 thousand maimed soldiers and their families

    Then top it off with your continued support and apologies for Bolten, Wolforwitz and Krystols failed war that you and your ilk didn't learn a damn thing from, your a caloused and ignorant voter that needs to do a lot of reading and listening to other than far right media like FOX.

    Get informed !!!
