Towards a World War III scenario? Role of Israel in triggering an attack on Iran

15-08-2010 09:16

source:"Options in Dealing with Iran’s Nuclear Program", CSIS Report, March 2010

This war can be prevented if people forcefully confront their governments, pressure their elected representatives, organize at the local level in towns, villages and municipalities, spread the word, inform their fellow citizens as to the implications of a nuclear war, initiate debate and discussion within the armed forces.

The holding of mass demonstrations and antiwar protests is not enough. What is required is the development of a broad and well organized grassroots antiwar network which forcefully challenges the legitimacy of war, a global people's movement which criminalizes war.

This situation is not simply a case for the United Kingdom, young people are imprisoned in disgusting conditions everywhere, and all these prisons must be torn to the ground with the guards scattered. Fire to the Prisons.
