Warning of Widening Global War!
Is an Israel/U.S. Attack on Iran Imminent?
Former Cuba President, Fidel Castro, says: “I do not harbor the slightest doubt that as soon as the warships of the United States and Israel take up their positions – together with the rest of the U.S. military vessels located in the vicinity of the Iranian coasts – and attempt to inspect that country’s first merchant ship, a rain of missiles will be unleashed in both directions. That will be the precise moment when that terrible war will begin. It is not possible to foresee how many ships will be sunk nor of what ensign.”
Professor Noam Chomsky says: “The increasing threats of military action against Iran are of course in violation of the UN Charter, and in specific violation of Security Council resolution 1887 of September 2009 which reaffirmed the call to all states to resolve disputes related to nuclear issues peacefully, in accordance with the Charter, which bans the use or threat of force.”
“They are gearing up totally for the destruction of Iran,” according to Dan Plesch, director of the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at the University of London. “US bombers and long range missiles are ready today to destroy 10,000 targets in Iran in a few hours,” he said.
In the event of such military action this is a call for a mobilization to protest in Hilo at 12 noon on the day following military action. Gather at the traffic light intersection of Kamehameha Ave. and Pauahi St. on Hilo Bayfront. Such a military confrontation will be a grave mistake resulting in a widening war of unknown but major international human, financial, and environmental consequences, including widespread radiation contamination.
Meanwhile, we should not wait: join this Friday’s peace vigil; contact both the White House 202-456-1111 http://www.whitehouse.gov/CONTACT and our Congressional representatives Mazie Hirono http://www.hirono.house.gov in Hilo 935-3756, in Honolulu 808-541-1986, in Washington 202-225-4906, Senator Akaka http://akaka.senate.gov in Hilo 935-1114, in D.C. 202-224-6361, and Senator Inouye http://inouye.senate.gov in Hilo 935-0844, in D.C. 202-224-3934, to make clear our opposition to the US initiating such a confrontation with Iran.
