With the 2012 election season in high gear, Iran hawks in both parties and their Israeli counterparts, including Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Barak, are pressing for war.

War?!.. Why does this seem to be the first answer?.. I pray not, I lost one brother a month ago and two are still in afghanistan...I just want them and my brothers and sisters in arms home, and not in a coffin.
Thanks Nancy

I currently have a son-in-law in Afghanistan who is the father of two infant sons, one only 3 months old. I am wholeheartedly with Milkah on this one and do not want any of our families further affected by this unnecessary war. I would prefer to see all of these wars end now and certainly do not want to see another one started.
As for this petition, it is well written for signing by Jewish Americans but by its design excludes the many others that would sign a non-religion specific version.

Sent a personalized message. We have so many problems within our own country - so many people need food, homes, jobs, etc, that we should never even consider a war and the billions of dollars wasted on it, but focus on helping our citizens right now.

If the US is actually in a budget crisis, then perhaps it needs to consider cutting its funding to its rogue satellite state, Israel.

This is an other crime committed by Israel.It is the attack of Israel against USS Liberty in June 1976.The survivors of this attack are asking for an investigation in that crime.Here is a letter one of my friends has received.Will you please read the letter,sign the petition and spread the word among your friend,families and neighbors in order to press the American authorities to open an investigation according to the request of the survivors of that attack?Here is the letter and the link to the petition.It is open for all.

Thank you for signing INVESTIGATE THE ATTACK ON THE USS LIBERTY petition. With your help, we've reached 1396 signers. But if we are going to have an impact, it's critical that more people contact The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama.

Can you please forward this email to five of your friend right now? With your help we can reach our goal! Share this link:
http://signon.org/sign/investigate-the-attack?source=s.em.cr&r_by=131474&mailing_id=5494

DoD and Congress seem to be oblibious to the fact that their decision to participate in the cover-up of the War Crimes that were committe against us has consequences. It has destroyed USS Liberty lives. It has destroyed USS Liberty marriages. It has destroyed USS Liberty families.

But DoD and Congress simply don't care what the effect of their action has on US military lives.

You can also subscribe to our mailing list and get email alerts at http://www.usslibertyveterans.org/email_alerts.html
and read my latest letter to Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus at http://www.usslibertyveterans.org/files/Response%20to%20Ray%20Mabus%2008022012.pdf.



Thank you for taking a stand on this important issue.

Whether or not Obama can be "bullied" into going to war , Israel will do what it needs to do.This would be a war of air strikes which Israel is known to be brilliant . This would not involve land troops.

I signed but then the page went blank. Though I have signed a couple of petitions very much like this one. I have also written a letter and sent an email to the president with my own thoughts. Then called his office (well as close as one can get to doing that).

I will not get into a discussion about the superiority of one nation or the other, as I do believe the superior nation is the one that follows the path of peace. Iran may not like Israel, Israel may not like Iran - is this a school yard for bullies to fight, or actual war where people die for the goals of so-called leaders? The world is weary from war, the United States citizens are war weary. War is never an answer, only the path to blood and destruction.

"When you have a hammer (a US miliitary that spends more on armament than the whole war combinied) everything else is a nail". It's like having a super fast sports car idle in your garage. You feel the need to take it out for a spin every now and then. As long as the US spends so much of it's budget on arms, it feels a reflexive action to use the military when diplomacy would be better.

Thank you Nancy! I signed, added my thoughts and shared...

My comments.

NOTE: It's time to decide what America stands for! Does she advocate peaceful solutions are just act out a charade, put on a show with the latest "Talking Head?" Do "We" Americans know who "We" are in the scheme of things? Do "We" accept that children, ours included, are expendable? Acceptable Collateral Damage? Does this nation believe in a higher power? If so what is that higher power "We" claim "We" serve? As far as I can glean, Gr$$d has become our master..

Hate begets hate! When is an eye for an eye enough? Jesus said to cast off old ways..I think that those reading this know the score. America has fallen by the wayside. She has shown the world that she has no mercy, no honor, no integrity. I know that the native Americans learned this the hard way. The slaves brought here against their will! The Blacks and people of color being slaughtered every day here in America by those who at one time were peace makers. Now they've become judge, jury and executioner!

Our court system has become so skewed it will take ten life times to clean out the stench. And then there's Washington, DC. Words elude me since none have been written to describe that den of inequity. Both Party's have fouled the peoples house.

Both party's continue the good cop bad cop routine. What's happening to America reminds me of Rome when Nero Fiddled as Rome burned. That was the beginning of the end of almost 1000 years of power. Why did Rome fall? Because the Senate became so corrupt there was no one left to hold the other accountable. No checks and balances left. Only chaos. The citizens of Rome had no where to turn. Sounds familiar? Does it not?

I'm in one of those moods, today, where even I feel beat. I ask myself "Is it worth it" The it being the sacrifices some of US make, have made, to continue on with the good fight. I can honestly say that if more Americans had not picked up their cross these last years folks like me would have thrown in the towel.

Many who will read this know what I'm saying. Trying to find some semblance of justice for many of US has been an uphill battle with little to no light at the end of each journey. Don't get me wrong, I'm not feeling like the lone stranger. I know, and have met, many who have had crosses to bare that I could not carry. Like our returning soldiers and what their families are up against. Like the family and or lone parent who has to raise their children in a nation gone rogue.

Like grand ma, grand pa, the disabled, the working poor, fearful that SS, Medicare, Medicaid will go up in smoke. What must it be like to live everyday in a state of Limbo?

What is it that those in Washington don't get? Are you so comfortable in your space, your ivory towers, that you have no idea that more then half this nation ARE NOT EXPERIENCING even a remote feeling of well-being?

DO YOU EVEN CARE? Key word; Care. Empathy. Compassion. Thoughtfulness. Considerateness. LOVE!

Some of you may ask, "What has any of this to do with Iran, US & Israel?" If you must ask, then in my book, you're part of America's problem.

You who are paid great sums of money to lead what do you suppose the non-paid side of this debate is feeling?

Not one of America's high profile leaders in American today have shown themselves to have what it takes to instill, much less back up, work towards, make sound, the hope and aspirations of America's citizens. In the minds of many of you "We" have come food for the Jackals!

Thomas Jefferson, JFK, KING, IKE, spoke of such things...

I wonder? President Obama? "Are You Up To It?" Will "YOU" SPEAK OF SUCH THINGS?"

We can't be the policemen of the world, and, if other countries start to comprehend this, perhaps, they won't be so easily encouraged to go to war in the first place.

We need a satisfactory military to protect ourselves and assist other like-minded countries, if need be, but, it appears our enemies one day, become our friends, the next, and vise versa.

Signed & Noted. (Barbara W. I can't send you a green star yet...wish it could be millions of stars, though). It seems like the world is on a merry-go-round--countries oppressing other countries, people within them oppressing other people....and then, one day, the oppressed become the oppressors. Like the poor kid bullied at school who eventually becomes the bully. When will this madness end?
The "darkness" within each of us is also nurtured by the Media..."We are the big, bad, USA...don't mess with us." This topsy-turvy mentality has to be flipped right-wide up. What happened to us being the "peacekeepers?" Like many stated here, greed and power have overwhelmed too many souls. Fear, anger, and lust feed them. We must constantly push our Pres, elected officials and media to side with peace. Besides signing petitions, sending letters, making phone calls, giving financial support....the message of peace must continue to be spread....everywhere....and never give up.

Well Allan. That quite sums it up. Who cares if Israel kills a whole bunch of people because they need to have an enemy in order to avoid any honest discussion of peace? You sum your complete lack of humanity to call Israel "brilliant" at killing a whole bunch of people. Who cares though. They are Muslim, I gather they don't count.

Does Israel really need any more reassurances that the U.S. supports them? The last thing this country needs is to involve itself in another war.

My sincere sympathy is extended to Milkah and her family on the loss of her brother. I hope the two siblings who remain in Afghanistan return home safely and soon!

Many people invested in Obama thinking this man would change the world. I was pre warned that this man was a fraud and I knew he was just another puppet of the NWO. Really it is up to us the people if there ever going to be changes. We do have the power to peacefully resist but most people just don't know it or see it. Henriette's post on NSEARCH tells it all.

Obama had the Peace Priz with nothing ( nothing done for peace) and it seems he wants to be the War Hero and take the WAR PRIZE IF IT OCCURES. He already support the IDF and will continue as he needs the jews and zionests votes ... it is business not Insani matter.
For personal interest they want to kill and murder .....
