The Bush regime lied knowingly, openly and repeatedly in order to
justify waging aggressive war against Iraq and its subsequent occupation.
Hence, its current propaganda campaign attempting to demonize and justify
war with Iran has no credibility and is a source of great concern.
Past US governments are guilty of a long series of assaults on Iran.
In 1954, the democratically elected government of Iran was overthrown by a
CIA sponsored coup, introducing 26 years of brutal dictatorship under the
Shah - and lucrative concessions for American oil companies. From 1980 to
1988, the US government financed Saddam Hussein's Iraqi aggression against
Iran, resulting in a million Iranian casualties and costing them $350
billion. Today, having invaded and occupied its neighbors, the US
government has a quarter million combat soldiers and mercenaries stationed
on both Iran's eastern and western borders and three aircraft carrier led
naval battle groups lurking off Iran's coast. Daily the Bush regime
regales the public with accusations against Iranian leadership and sponsors
sanctions against them while refusing to talk to them. Reports of current
US military incursions into Iran and attempts to destabilize Iranian
society are consistent with past US government activities.
Oblivious to domestic and world opinion and to international law, the
war criminal Bush regime conspires to instigate a pretext to attack Iran
again. It is their clear intent. We have seen this before.
We, the undersigned, will not further acquiesce to military aggression
against other nations by the Bush regime. In the event of an attack by US
military forces against the nation of Iran, we pledge to oppose that
aggression by our active participation in a campaign of mass non-violent
resistance, including civil disobedience, with the express intent of
impeding further aggression.
