March on the Pentagon Says “Hell, No” to More Imperialist War
Remember the Gulf of Tonkin false flag incident in 1964 that led to The Gulf of Tonkin resolution on August 7, 1964? Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, authorizing President Johnson to take any measures he believed were necessary to retaliate and to promote the maintenance of international peace and security in southeast Asia.
Millions of dead Vietnamese later and a generation of US military veterans that have killed themselves since then at a race that is over twice the number (around 58k) that were killed in country, the people of the US and the war machine are still at it!
For its entire existence, but especially with the advent of the spreading cancer of US imperialist around the turn of the last century, the US military industrial complex has metastasized out of control and it seems incapable of leaving any country in peace, or unstained by its filthy military bases.
There is much evidence to believe that Iran DID NOT attack the Japanese tanker last week when Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was in a meeting with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei in Teheran.
We woke up today to find that apparently Iran has shot down a US Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (Drone) that it claims was in its airspace, and, of course, shills from the Pentagon are claiming that the military weapon /surveillance was in “international space.”
The empty suits from the Pentagon are fake-gravely stating that it seems Iran is “provoking” the US to strike.
Of course, whether the military drone was in Iranian airspace, or international space, Iran has every reason to be wary of its presence, along with the massive build up of Navy vessels in the Strait of Hormuz.
Along with crippling economic sanctions and belligerent statements from the US hegemon, any person with his/her head on correctly can see that the US/Israel is provoking Iran into a war that would be disastrous for all sides, but, most of all for the innocent people in Iran.
The sovereign state of Iran has long been the “jewel in the crown” of neocon wet dreams and it seems with the addition of well-known Zionist neocons and architects of the Project for a New American Century to the Trump regimes, the realization of that dream is tragically nearing.
March on the Pentagon and Cindy Sheehan’s Soapbox is inviting you to join us in front of the White House on Monday July 8th to demonstrate our opposition to any imperialist war, but particularly the increasing
US/Israel/Saudi Arabia hostilities towards Iran.
We are meeting at 11 am on the Lafayette Park (Pennsylvania Avenue) side of the House of US Horrors, bring your signs, bullhorns, noisemakers and outrage with you!
Join us if you are able, or organize a protest in your community.
