VoteVets.org has teamed up with Gen. Wesley Clark to promote a new campaign warning against a military strike on Iran. StopIranWar.com is calling on Americans to build political pressure on U.S. policymakers to work with our allies and use every diplomatic, political, and economic option at our disposal to deal with Iran.
In a web-ad released today, Clark warns, “We’re approaching the last moments in which the administration can change its policy and head off a looming confrontation with Iran.” Watch it:
Take action here.
Also today, the Center for American Progress released a progressive strategy to resolve the Iranian nuclear problem: “Contain and Engage.”
Rather than pursue the faint hope that coercive measures will force Iran’s capitulation, our contain-and-engage strategy couples the pressures created by sanctions, diplomatic isolation and investment freezes with practical compromises and realizable security assurances to encourage Iran onto a verifiable, non-nuclear weapons path.

Jon Soltz: Today we’re here to launch StopIranWar.com which is a joint website from the groups VoteVets.org and General Wesley Clark’s WesPAC.
Gen. Wes Clark: We’re here to talk about something that’s very, very important, right now.
We’re approaching the last moments in which the administration can change its policy and head off a looming confrontation with Iran.
Gen. Wes Clark: It’s a confrontation that has enormous consequences for the Middle East, for our troops on the ground in Iraq, and for all of us here, in America.
And we’re asking you to come to our new website, to learn about what’s going on and to learn how you can take action and be involved in helping put an end to an erroneous foreign policy, that’s been put forth by the Bush Administration.
Jon Soltz: See all the facts at our new website: StopIranWar.com
Gen. Wes Clark: And sign the petition today. Thank You.
