Letter to the U.N.

Stop The Bomb... nuke Please join me in supporting Code Pink's effort to stop the madness that is pre-emptive nuclear war.   When my wife and I went to Washington D.C. on Sept 24th 2005 for the Anti-War Protest March, we met three of the ladies from Code Pink.   I was confined to a wheel chair and they were very gracious in helping us find our way to the Washington Monument and the site of the march.   Their efforts to showcase the unjust and illegal war in Iraq and their help in Cindy Sheehan's efforts to bring our troops home are very much appreciated.   They need our help now to stop the use of nuclear weapons against Iran.   - fc
Code PinkTell the Bush administration and Kofi Annan that the world is demanding an end to this madness!

To the Honorable Kofi Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations

Dear Mr. Secretary-General,

We are appalled that the United States is threatening a military strike against Iran, possibly using nuclear weapons. As you are well aware, a preventive strike is illegal under international law, and the threat to use nuclear weapons against Iran, a non-nuclear weapons state, is a violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty that the United States has signed. A nuclear strike against Iran would undermine the entire legal framework of disarmament and non-proliferation that so many millions of people around the world, and the United Nations itself, have worked so hard to build and protect.

As the head of the United Nations, the repository of international law, you called the U.S./UK invasion of Iraq what it was: illegal. Now we call on you to tell the Bush administration and the world:

--That any preventive military strike against Iran is illegal.

--That even threatening a nuclear strike against Iran - a non-nuclear weapons state - is illegal.

--That a nuclear strike threatens dire consequences - maybe even global war. We urge you to make a diplomatic solution to this crisis your top priority.

Thank you for your consideration.
