"Remember the Maine! To hell with Spain!"

Christopher Jon Bjerknes

The United States of America has repeatedly used attacks on ships as a pretext for war. The sinking of the USS Maine led to the Spanish-American War in 1898. The sinking of the Lusitania served as one of the justifications for America's entrance into the First World War. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, which many had predicted and of which President Roosevelt had foreknowledge, brought us into World War Two. The Gulf of Tonkin incident precipitated the Vietnam War.

This tried and true tactic of manufacturing a pretext for war is now being tried against Iran. I suspect it will succeed, and soon.

The best time to launch an anti-war protest is before the war begins. We have stopped the Zionists from instigating a war against Iran many, many times in the past. We can stop them now, if we can demonstrate that there is strong will not to go to war with Iran and not to fight another Middle Eastern war. We have to publicly show that the American People do not support a war against Iran. We must do this now, before the war starts.
