Foreign Policy: Iran

My Resolution Against War on Iran has been adopted by the Bernal Heights and Harvey Milk LGBTQ Democratic Clubs, the San Francisco Berniecrats and the San Francisco Progressive Democrats of America. It reads:

WHEREAS, the series of military actions formerly known as the War on Terror have included a war in Afghanistan now in its eighteenth year, a war in Iraq entered into on the basis of fraudulent allegations on the part of the U.S. Government, and the additional bombing of Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria and Yemen; and

WHEREAS, this continual state of war has cost nearly $6 trillion; caused the loss of life of nearly 15,000 American military personnel and contract soldiers, the wounding of an additional 50,000, and the death of an estimated 244,000 civilians; and has also involved the emission of greenhouse gases equal to the annual emission of 257 million cars; and

WHEREAS, the net result of these policies has been a global increase in hostility toward the United States, while cities such as San Francisco lack adequate funds for dealing with concurrent crises of homelessness, drug addiction, and mental illness,

BE IT RESOLVED, that the (Bernal Heights and Harvey Milk LGBTQ Democratic Clubs, the San Francisco Berniecrats and the San Francisco Progressive Democrats of America) oppose the extension of military action to Iran as well as any provocative actions directed by our government toward that nation for the purpose of provoking war; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the (Bernal Heights and Harvey Milk LGBTQ Democratic Clubs, the San Francisco Berniecrats and the San Francisco Progressive Democrats of America) urge the San Francisco congressional delegation to oppose such actions, as well as to deny any funding for such purposes.
