Ralph Nader Warns Against War With Iran

Ralph Nader writes at Nader.org:

The same neocons who persuaded George W. Bush and crew to, in Ron Paul’s inimitable words, “lie their way into invading Iraq” in 2003, are beating the drums of war more loudly these days to attack Iran. It is remarkable how many of these war-mongers are former draft dodgers who wanted other Americans to fight the war in Vietnam.

With the exception of Ron Paul, who actually knows the history of U.S.-Iranian relations, the Republican presidential contenders have declared their belligerency toward Iranian officials who they accuse of moving toward nuclear weapons.

The Iranian regime disputes that charge, claiming they are developing the technology for nuclear power and nuclear medicine.

Nader goes on to examine the historical and geopolitical basis for the developing conflict, and concludes that Congress and the American people should stand up to stop the war before it starts. Read the whole thing.

Nader was an independent presidential candidate in 2008 and 2004, and was the 2000 and 1996 presidential candidate of the Green Party, although he never joined that party himself.
