The press has reported that President Bush gave a "prepare to deploy" order to the nuclear-equipped aircraft carrier USS Eisenhower and its accompanying strike force. They are now headed for the Persian Gulf, just off the coast of Iran. This deployment could be the first step of planned military action against Iran.
As a suggested first step in opposing this, there is a new petition, hosted by Just Foreign Policy and Peace Action, calling on our government not to attack Iran: http://www.justforeignpolicy.org/involv
At a time when our troops are still in Iraq, where the violence is really spinning out of control, it does not make any sense to attack Iran. However, it seems that our government may actually do it unless the American people restrain them. That is why signing this petition right now is so urgent. Of course, this is only the first step, but it is an important step.
