"As Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), the only anti-war Republican candidate, later stated on CNN, Iran is not a threat to the US. In fact, Iran is not a threat to any country including Israel. Any pre-emptive military attack against Iran would be a criminal and unlawful act which would bring a major conflagration in the whole of the Middle East and the Islamic World sending shock waves across the globe with profound unintended consequences. The use of any nuclear weapons would be the greatest crime of all and would lead to a massive acceleration in proliferation of nuclear weapons across the world."
"The international community has seen the catastrophe that the illegal and criminal invasion of Iraq has created for the people of that country. CASMII calls on the American people and the international community to strongly condemn the despicable remarks of the four warmongers in the list of the ten Republican presidential candidates. The US-Iran stand-off should be resolved peacefully by direct and immediate negotiations between the US and Iran without any precondition on all points of dispute including Iran's nuclear programme."
