This article in The Guardian states that the Joint Chiefs of Staff has approved their first Nuclear Operations document in 14 years, and it includes trying to fight and win a nuclear war!
This is a profound contradiction to what President Ronald Reagan asserted in his 1984 State of the Union: A nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought.
Donald Trump has demonstrated that he is anti-diplomacy, having withdrawn from the INF Treaty, the first nuclear reduction agreement in history; and the Iran Nuclear Agreement.
Now the Trump Administration is advocating a policy that greatly increases the risk of getting the US into nuclear war!
In response to Iran shooting down a US surveillance drone, Trump said the US "would not stand for it."
These kinds of reckless rhetoric and policies can lead to war with Iran, and even nuclear war. We need your urgent help in taking action against these policies!
First, click here to email your Senators and Representative in the US Congress and urge them to co-sponsor and support a bill that would prohibit funds from being used for kinetic military operations against Iran unless Congress authorizes such an action.
Second, in addition to emailing your Congresspersons, please also call them via the Capitol Switchboard 202-224-3121! Phone calls have more impact, so you significantly amplify your effectiveness by also calling!
