This is no time for war against Iran

The Lieberman-Kyl Amendment is a de facto declaration of war on the Islamic Republic of Iran and must be defeated. Although we have major differences with Iran, now is not the time to start a new war.

Unlike in 2003 with Iraq, we should exhaust all diplomatic avenues prior to exercising military options. Instead of antagonizing Russia, which has a lot of influence in Iran, we should be working to enlist their help. The arrogance of the current administration just doesn't work anymore. Thanks to George Bush, et al., the U.S. just doesn't command much respect and prestige on the international scene anymore. We need to reverse that.
