Dear 5849376,

Stop Trump's war with Iran

A crisis in the Middle East could happen in the blink of an eye – and things are escalating fast. On Monday, Iran said it may violate the 2015 nuclear deal that Trump already withdrew the United States from. Later that day, Trump ordered another 1,000 troops to the Middle East, bringing the total troop increase since early May to 8,500.1

A war with Iran would be devastating – likely on a larger scale than even the war in Iraq that Trump's war hawk adviser John Bolton helped engineer 15 years ago.2 We must stop Bolton from re-using his Iraq playbook to drag us into yet another catastrophic war in the region – and there's one critical time-sensitive way you can help.

Congress has the constitutional authority to make – and stop – war, but legislators are not feeling the pressure to act. Our friends at Win Without War and other peace activists are calling on us to change that. We have to turn up the heat before bombs start flying.

Last month, Bolton issued a threatening statement based on bogus intelligence and promoted a plan to send 120,000 troops to the region.3,4 Then, in an effort seemingly meant to create a sense of urgency, team Trump ordered all non-essential staff out of the U.S. embassy in Baghdad.5 After two commercial oil tankers were attacked in the Gulf of Omar last week, the Trump administration immediately blamed Iran without sharing evidence with Congress or anyone else.6

This is an intentional strategy to create the perception of a dramatic new threat that makes war seem inevitable. It isn't. A British general responsible for joint U.S./U.K. operations in the region said "there's no increased threat" from Iran.7 Germany's Defense Ministry says there's "no concrete threat."8 No other nation is preparing for military intervention.

Bolton is not going to let facts get in the way – he will take us to war if he can. But if we rise to this moment, we can stop a horrific, preventable disaster from unfolding for the Iranian and American people, the region and the world.
