Despite the November 2007 National Intelligence Estimate concluding that Iran had halted its nuclear weapons program, the Bush administration is bolstering its case for war by labeling Iran one of the greatest threats to American security. Each day seems to bring new allegations about Iran’s nuclear program or its involvement in Iraq. Hostile rhetoric from Iranian and US officials is creating an environment where small incidents, like the Iranian speedboats approaching US warships in the Strait of Hormuz earlier in the year, could erupt into something far more serious.
You can help us tell congressional leaders that we want dialogue, not military attacks. Take part in the National Call-in Day for diplomacy with Iran and phone your representatives.

- The US and Iran share common interests: a stable Iraq, Middle East and Afghanistan.
- The US pursued negotiations with North Korea and Libya — it’s time to talk with Iran.
