A full-page ad in Washington Post's Monday March 5th edition featured top former military and intelligence officials urging President Obama to resist the pressure for a war of choice with Iran.
The ad, sponsored by NIAC, comes on the same day that the President was meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu at the White House.
That military leaders are taking this unprecedented stand is an indication of how intense the pressure for war has become.
There is no such thing as a military solution to the Iranian nuclear standoff. We must instead invest in diplomacy that can prevent war, prevent an Iranian nuclear weapon, reduce tensions, and open space for human rights and democracy defenders in Iran.
More and more voices are coming together to prevent war before it is too late. Now is the time to take a stand. Join this growing movement and make a donation today.
