anti war petition; deadline fast approaching

Dear friend,

As you know, this Wednesday, in every state, MoveOn members will meet

with their Senators (or their staff) and express their deep concern

about the Bush White House's rush to war with Iraq. In each meeting, the

members will deliver a copy of the signatures on our "No War on Iraq"

petition from their state.

Please ask your friends and colleagues to sign the petition at:


Our goal is to reach 100,000 nationally. Country-wide, we're already three quarters of the way

there -- but we need your help to put us over the top.

The more signers our local delegations represent, the more likely it is

that our national leaders will take their concerns seriously.

Please take a moment to pass the message below along to folks who share

your concern about a war on Iraq and want to hear from you on this.

Time is running out, but with your help we can reach our goals and send

a powerful message to the Senate.

P.S. I've included a copy of our original outreach below.


Dear friend of MoveOn,

The Bush White House is aggressively promoting war on Iraq, against

the advice of its diplomats, and without strong support from Congress,

the American public, or our allies.

Today we are launching a petition to oppose a war that would likely

undermine both national and world security. Let?s show our

representatives that they have strong public support to stop this war.

If you sign today, your comments will be hand-delivered to your

Senators as part of a national day of action next week. We're

organizing constituent meetings with Senate offices everywhere.

Sign the petition at:


It's important that we speak out against a war in which many of our

young people, and likely many more innocent Iraqis, would die.

Even top Republican leaders are publicly questioning a war:

Brent Scowcroft, the former National Security Advisor, says a U.S.

invasion of Iraq "could turn the whole region into a cauldron and,

thus, destroy the war on terrorism." He also says "there is scant

evidence to tie Saddam to terrorist organizations, and even less to

the Sept. 11 attacks."

Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) says the CIA has "absolutely no evidence"

that Iraq possesses or will soon possess nuclear weapons.

Henry Kissinger says, "The notion of justified pre-emption runs

counter to modern international law, which sanctions the use of force

in self-defense only against actual -- not potential -- threats."

Kissinger also says, "American military intervention in Iraq would be

supported only grudgingly, if at all, by most European allies."

Dick Armey, the House Majority Leader (R-TX-26), says, "I don't believe

that America will justifiably make an unprovoked attack on another

nation. It would not be consistent with what we have been as a nation

or what we should be as a nation."

We've got to speak out too. Do your part at:
