Capital Times: War against Iran is not the answer

Bonnie Block, past chair of WNPJ makes the case against a war with Iran in an op-ed published in Friday's Capitol Times. Bonnie writes: "Israel has around 200 nuclear weapons, has never allowed IAEA inspections, nor signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty. Ditto for India and Pakistan. Yet the U.S. gives aid to all three of these countries. Furthermore, the five original nuclear powers have done little to eliminate these dreadful weapons as evidenced by their possession of over 20,000 such weapons. So why is the focus only on Iran?"

Chicago in May is also a crossroads in that it is a critical place and time for us all to take stock of where we have been and where we are going.
