You will recall Public opinion was deeply divided on Bush's 1990 Gulf policy, and the decision to invade Iraq was made by the US Senate via a narrow five-vote margin.

An investigation of any kind (especially one that is over events that took place in 2008) of the most outspoken voice of reason in the U.S. House of Representatives on the issue of U.S. aggression in the Middle East should put all Americans on Red alert.

Normally I don't recommend those "take action"- campaigns: the ones that tell us, it's not too late, click-here to importune our "elected"- representatives with emails and faxes.

However, a confrontation with Iran is different.

A World War III would be terminal, and therefore it is imperative we make our voices heard.

Contact Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton and demand she honor the commitment made by President Obama during the 2007 Democratic debate when he said that he would:

"As president, be willing to meet without preconditions with Iran's leaders, and that the notion of not talking to one's foes was ridiculous." [5]

What's worse than turmoil in the Middle East asked a blogger, "A radioactive turmoil in the Middle East.
