Stopping Bush's War With Iran and Promoting Real Diplomacy
Just Foreign Policy helped organize and publicize an Experts Statement on Iran, including former top-level U.S. government officials, calling for direct, comprehensive diplomacy with Iran without preconditions.
We helped block a resolution in Congress that demanded that President Bush try to blockade Iran's gas imports, an act of war.
We organized a 22 city tour with author Steven Kinzer on the folly of attacking Iran and the need for real diplomacy. See www.follyofattackingiran.org.
We delivered Kinzer's book All the Shah's Men to every Congressperson along with a Dear Colleague letter from Representative James McGovern.
We made a video on the need for real diplomacy with Iran that has been viewed more than 300,000 times on YouTube.
As a result of our efforts, the path to war was blocked, even under the Bush Administration, and now the Obama Administration has taken initial steps to pursue the path to diplomacy that we have advocated.
