Green Party: Obama & McCain embraced Bush propaganda on attacking Iran

  • Green Party National Convention in Chicago (July 10-13) will challenge voters to vote GreenParty instead of the ‘bipartisan war machine’
  • US goals in the Middle East must include multilateral disarmament and an end to US political and military domination over the region, assert Green Party
  • The Maine Green Independent Party urges towns and cities throughout the state to pass resolutions opposing war with Iran unless authorized by Congress, asks party members to initiate and support such efforts; visit http://www.mainegreens.org/index.php?sectionID=260&mode=

Green Party leaders and candidates expressed alarm that presumed Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has joined President Bush in threatening a US attack on Iran. The Green Party said that even if the current threats from President Bush, Sen. Obama, and Republican presidential candidate John McCain are just hawkish bluster to convince Iran to abandon uranium enrichment, the effect will be encouragement for Iran and other countries in the region to gain nuclear weapons as a deterrence against an attack by the US or Israel.

In a speech last week before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Sen. Obama said, “I will do everything in my power to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Everything in my power. Everything.” The speech confirmed Sen. Obama’s earlier claim that the Iranian government is “a threat to all of us” and “we should take no option, including military action, off the table.”

“Barack Obama’s language implies that, instead of repudiating the neo-con doctrine of ‘preemptive’ invasion, he may be ready to endorse a US attack on Iran for the same reason the Bush White House is making such threats,” said Candace Caveny, Michigan Green Party candidate for Congress (10th District).

“It also shows that Sen. Obama has swallowed the Bush-Cheney line about Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons, when Iran has said over and over it seeks nuclear power solely for peaceful purposes. President Bush — and Sen. Obama, apparently — are ignoring the National Intelligence Estimate on Iran’s nuclear program, and have concocted a scenario in which Iran is about to manufacture nuclear bombs and drop them on Israel. The irony is that Israel — not Iran — possesses a nuclear arsenal,” said Ms. Caveny.

Green leaders, preparing for the party’s National Convention in Chicago July 10-13 (http://www.greenparty2008.org), are urging antiwar voters to vote Green Party on Election Day 2008 in light of Sen. Obama’s positions on Iran and Israel and his vague and contradictory promise to end the Iraq occupation while keeping US military personnel and contractors in Iraq and surrounding nations. Jesse Johnson, Cynthia McKinney, Kent Mesplay, and Kat Swift are seeking the Green Party’s presidential nomination.

“The deceptions now being used to justify an attack on Iran recall the fraudulent claims of WMDs and a Saddam Hussein-al-Qaeda conspiracy that got us into the current war. The rest of the world — especially Middle Eastern nations — understands that the real goals are US domination in the region, control over the Middle East oil spigot, and aid for Israel’s strategic military objectives,” said Rodger Jennings, Green candidate for US Congress in Illinois’ 12th District (http://www.rodgerjennings.org).

“Americans should be concerned that, despite his emphasis on diplomacy, Barack Obama’s Iran posture shows that he might be as ready as George W. Bush to initiate World War III. We cannot leave the future of the world to two powerful US political parties, both of which endorse military aggression in the name of preemption,” added Mr. Jennings.
