NO WAR, NO SANCTIONS ON IRAN! From the Houston Peace Council -

Posted by paz on 2/08/12

Clear the Middle East of All Nuclear Weapons!

As the drums of a military strike against Iran are getting louder and louder, the leaders of the United States and Israel, in a good-cop/bad-cop style of approach, are trying to present the U.S. and Israeli public opinion with an apparently “inevitable” — but certainly false — choice. While the “bad-cop” Israel is threatening Iran with an immanent Bush-style “preemptive strike,” the Obama Administration, trying to look like a “good-cop,” is pretending to be “opposed” to such a unilateral military action on the part of Israel, while forcing other governments into taking part in the imposition of devastating economic sanctions on Iran and its people.

All this is done in the name of forcing Iran to stop developing its nuclear program. Yet, it is apparent to anyone who knows even the slightest about the U.S.-Israeli policy in the Middle East that the objective of both approaches is none other than imposing a pro-West “regime change” in Iran and establishing an imperialist “pax-Americana” on the whole of the region.
In doing so, both the U.S. Administration and the Israeli government are distracting the public eye from several very significant facts:

The US Peace Council calls for the full implementation of the Non-Nuclear Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and its immediate application to the Middle East. Middle East should be declared as a Nuclear-Weapons Free Zone, and all nuclear weapons should be removed, or otherwise eliminated, from the region. This is the only way to peace in the Middle East and an urgent measure to avoid the impending war and devastation, not only for the people of Iran and the Middle East, but of the people of the United States as well.
