Veterans For Peace firmly opposes U.S. attempts to increase tensions in the Persian Gulf and create the conditions for war against Iran.
The U.S. has created ongoing tensions with Iran by leaving the Iran Nuclear Deal, by imposing punishing economic sanctions, and by making questionable accusations against Iran. Veterans know first-hand how dangerous lies and exaggerations can lead the American public into war..
It is imperative that the U.S. immediately begins seeking diplomatic solutions to conflicts instead of creating pretexts for war. Veterans For Peace calls on the U.S. to:
• Draw down all its military forces from the Persian Gulf
• End its economic war against Iran, lifting sanctions immediately
• Re-join the six-country Iran Nuclear Deal
• End the 2001 Authorization of Use of Military Force (AUMF) that administration after administration has used to fund military expeditions around the globe under the guise of fighting the Islamophobic “War on Terror”
