Bush must not lead us to war with Iran
President Bush is starting to do his pep rally speeches again. This time it is not weapons of mass destruction, but Iran's nuclear program. The new U.S. intelligence report on Monday Dec. 3, concluded that Iran's nuclear weapons development program has been halted since the fall of 2003 because of international pressure.
Our own government's report, NIE, states that Iran has not done anything wrong, but Bush says "I don't trust them."
Many countries have nuclear power and have the potential to enrich uranium, but because Bush doesn't like Iran's government, he wants to put pressure on them.
How far will Bush go?
Do we just keep our fingers crossed and pray?
We need to let our Congress, Republicans and Democrats, know that we don't want to start another messy and unending war.
Write letters, make phone calls, or go to a Web site like moveon.org that makes it easy for you to do.
President Bush takes executive power seriously. He vetoes good bills. We need to let our politicians know what we want. It takes a lot of their votes to override the president's vetoes.
The American people need to speak up -- we are a democracy, not a dictatorship.
