AN APPEAL TO UNITED STATES AND ISRAELI AIR, MISSILE AND DRONE CREWS TO STAND DOWN FROM ORDERS TO ATTACK IRAN

Posted by & filed under .

As mentioned at the meeting last evening (1/3/2012), the next step is to attempt
to have this letter published in either commercial newspapers located
in places such as Norfolk, Virginia or Tampa, Fl., where centcom is
located, as well as trying to publish it in Military Times
publications.

We are in the process of getting quotes for such publication, and/or
permission to do so.  So the more signatories the better.  Will keep
you apprised of the progress made.  At some point, when we get the
quotes on an ad, we will try to do a drive to collect some donations
in order to publish it.

AN APPEAL TO UNITED STATES AND ISRAELI AIR, MISSILE AND DRONE CREWS TO
STAND DOWN FROM ORDERS TO ATTACK IRAN

We are at an historic moment when decisions are being made in the
United States and Israel on whether and when to attack Iran.

These will be decisions by politicians and individual commanders and
air, missile and drone crewmembers charged with the responsibility of
raining down munitions in an attack that will likely kill hundreds if not

thousands of Iranian people and potentially spread deadly nuclear
contamination to millions in Iran and surrounding nations.

Beyond this, an attack on Iran will almost certainly bring retaliation
that will result in even more human casualties and will disrupt global
oil shipments, with severe human consequences around the world.

An attack against Iran by the United States and Israel will violate
moral, international and domestic law and the interests of

humanity.  Additionally, both Iran and the United States are parties
to the Kellogg-Briand Pact which forbids the use of war.

There are those of us signing this appeal who have been members of the
United States and other armed forces and understand very well the
difficulty of refusing to follow an order to attack.  At the same
time, each of us has the responsibility to preserve human life and
nature in the face of inhuman and illegal orders, a responsibility

defined by the Nuremberg Conventions.

We urge all of you who may be called upon to attack Iran from the air,
and indeed all military personnel who may be engaged in any kind of
attack on Iran, to refuse to do so.

Sign Your Name Here.
