Gandhi Peace Brigade/ Betrayus Justifies War with Iran

Dear Friends,

Impeachment hearings for Cheney may be our last hope to prevent a war with Iran. General Petraeus' upcoming testimony is meant to prepare the American people for an attack on Iran: Admiral Fallon has been retired as the head of the Persian Gulf's Central Command. He had said there would be no war with Iran on his watch. Israel will simulate missile strikes from Iran, Lebanon and Syria to test the emergency response and evacuation of its citizens:
Israel will distribute gas masks to its entire population. Gas masks were also distributed before the U.S. invasion of Iraq. A Saudi council is discussing how to deal with sudden nuclear and radioactive hazards following a possible attack on Iran's nuclear reactors. Two guided-missile ships, the aircraft carrier USS Philippine Sea and the destroyer USS Ross, are currently patrolling off the coast of Lebanon. They have the fire power to shoot down planes and missiles over Israel. Cheney has returned from his tour of Iraq, Afghanistan, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Occupied Territories and Turkey. They are key US allies in the region and would play a critical role in an attack on Iran.

What you can do:
1. Call Senator Biden (202-224-5042) and ask him to subpoena Admiral Fallon so the American people can find out why he was retired.
2. Call Congressman John Conyers ((202-225-5126) and ask him to start impeachment hearings for Cheney. He and Nancy Pelosi are responsible for stone-walling these hearings and may be our last chance to prevent a war with Iran. Don't waste your time on Nancy Pelosi ... she has too much to hide.

Leslie and Ellen Taylor have started a "National Conversation" for Impeachment in Chairman Conyers' Judiciary Meeting Room. They have met with the Chairman on three occasions and are hoping to be joined in the future by Dick Gregory, Congressman Robert Wexler, Faye Williams, Reverend Yearwood, Reverend Hagler, and Reverend Cox, one of the Freedom Riders of the Civil Rights era.

Support Leslie and Ellen by calling the following Judiciary Committee Democrats ... ASK THEM TO ENDORSE IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS FOR CHENEY! If three of them sign on, the pro-impeachment forces will become the majority and Chairman Conyers will feel pressured to reconsider his "neutral" position. Better yet, start your own "National Conversation" in your district office.
