Will Americans Let Trump Start World War III for Saudi Arabia and Israel? If the U.S. military, or Israel or Saudi Arabia, had a viable plan to attack Iran without triggering a wider war, they would have done so long ago. We must tell Trump, Congressional leaders and all our elected representatives that we reject another war and that we understand how easily any U.S. attack on Iran could quickly spiral into an uncontainable and catastrophic regional or world war.

Bolton is Fired Four months ago in May, we cajoled Donald Trump into sending out the email below about firing John Bolton. We collected around close to 5,000 signatures and traveled to Bolton's home in Maryland to deliver them--and carry out a citizens arrest of the warhawk! Though Bolton refused to come to the door and accept our citizens' arrest, we knew we were on the right track. Today the wonderful news came in: Bolton has been fired!

Are Sanders and Warren Throwing a Lifeline to the Military-Industrial Complex? Among the front-runners in the Democratic Party presidential primary, Senators Warren and Sanders not only have the most progressive domestic agenda, but also the most anti-war, pro-diplomacy foreign policy agenda. The sharpest distinction between them is that Sanders has voted against over 80% of recent record military spending bills in the Senate, while Warren has voted for two thirds of them.

Guardianship System Eased, But Saudi Arabia Still Oppresses Women The Saudi government announced it will be eliminating part of the male guardianship system, finally granting women the right to obtain passports and travel (if 21 years of age or over), and obtain family identification cards without the need for male authorization. While the easing of the guardianship system is indeed welcome news, Saudi Arabia remains one of the world's most repressive societies for women.

Dogs of War Howl for Blood in Iran While Americans Cheer US Bombers on July 4th President Trump's order to the Pentagon to have an aerial parade of military aircraft over Washington, DC on July 4 provided a history lesson of America's war mongering in the past two decades, and a terrifying view of what might appear in the skies of Iran if John Bolton gets his way.

Trump Celebrates Himself on July 4th This year's Fourth of July celebration on the National Mall in Washington, DC has become a stop on the Trump for President re-election campaign trail. His "Salute to America" has become a "Salute to Donald Trump." He has called the events the "show of a lifetime!" and an unprecedented celebration of American military strength.

U.S. Sanctions: Economic Sabotage That Is Deadly, Illegal, and Ineffective While the world condemns the recent attacks on the oil tankers and tries to identify the culprit, global condemnation should also focus on the country responsible for the deadly, illegal and ineffective economic warfare at the heart of this crisis: the United States.

Travel to Cuba Falls Victim to John Bolton's Wrath John Bolton hates the governments of Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua calling them the "troika of tyranny" and the "three stooges of socialism" and is determined to use his time as National Security Adviser to eliminate the vestiges of socialism in our hemisphere.

Venezuela Embassy Protection Collective Defies "No Trespass" Order History will record this as a key turning point in US-Venezuela relations, US violation of a key tenet of international law and most of all, as a heroic example of US citizens doing everything in their power -- including going without food, water and electricity and facing daily assaults by the opposition -- to try to stop a US-orchestrated coup.

What Is Happening at the Venezuelan Embassy Is an Outrage Right here in Washington DC an unprecedented showdown is unfolding. Venezuelan supporters of self-declared interim president Juan Guaido have been trying to take over the Venezuelan Embassy. This goes against international law, the wishes of the government in control in Venezuela, and the dogged determination of a group of US citizens called the Embassy Protection Collective.

Social Movements Under Intense Attack Despite Colombia "Peace Plan" There is no peace in Colombia because the causes that led to the armed rebellions have not been addressed. On the contrary. There are still multinational companies that invade and displace rural communities. There are still paramilitary groups that terrorize Colombia's organizations. There is still a military strategy to consolidate the land and hand it over to the multinationals.

Activists Protect DC Venezuelan Embassy from US-Supported Coup An extraordinary chapter in the ongoing saga of Venezuela has been taking place, virtually unnoticed, at the Venezuela Embassy that lies in the heart of swanky Georgetown in Washington DC. A group initiated by CODEPINK and Popular Resistance, all activists opposed to the prospect of the Venezuelan opposition taking over the Embassy, have been living inside the building for the past two weeks.

CODEPINK Ranks the 2020 Presidential Candidates on War, Peace and Military Spendin Even the candidates who are vowing to tackle this crisis of militarism are doing so in ways that leave serious questions unanswered. Not one of them has said how much they would cut the record military budget that makes these wars possible and thus almost inevitable.

An Apology for a Different Plane Crash, 30 Years Later The tragic Ethiopian Airline plane crash recalls another passenger plane crash some 30 years ago. The latter, however, was not due to a mechanical malfunction but to U.S. missiles. And while very few Americans remember this incident, it still weighs heavy on the hearts of many Iranians -- as we discovered on our recent trip there.

How US Sanctions are Hurting Iran: A Firsthand Report In May 2018, President Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement, followed by an imposition of draconian sanctions that not only prohibit U.S. companies from doing business in Iran, but threaten all foreign companies and international banks that trade with Iran. The sanctions also severely limit Iran's ability to sell its major sour ce of revenue: oil.

The New Congress Needs to Create a Green Planet at Peace Demilitarizing US foreign policy should be among the top items on the agenda of the new Congress. Just as we are witnessing a rising movement for a visionary Green New Deal, so, too, the time has come for a New Peace Deal that repudiates endless war and the threat of nuclear war which, along with catastrophic climate change, poses an existential threat to our planet.

10 Good Things About 2018 Despite Trump in the White House and the rise of right-wing movements around the globe, 2018 was chock full of good things -- most of which went under-reported because of all the attention on Donald Trump. And speaking of Trump, probably the most important development of all: the wagons encircling Trump, making his presidency seems less and less tenable.

Will the new House Dems take on the War Lobby? How can we expect the new Democratic House of Representatives to stand up to the war lobby if they choose leaders who voted for the disastrous Iraq war, fail to lead on critical current issues of war, peace and record military spending, and are still in the pay of military-industrial interests?

Who Will Stop Trump From Tweeting Us into War With Iran? Both Saudi Arabia and Israel have been trying to suck the United States into their decades-old feud with Iran. Both opposed the Iran nuclear deal, and Israel has been advocating for the U.S. military to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities (even though Israel has several hundred nuclear weapons of its own and Iran has none.)
