More Don't Bomb Iran

We already posted something on this below, but I thought it bears repeating.

In response to recent military chatter that Bush intends to bomb Iran before his term is up (not to mention two years of beating the war drums), True Majority has just launched a campaign in support of Senate Resolution 356, which would require that any military action against Iran be explicitly approved by Congress.

This lovely video that accompanies the campaign, pieced together by Andrew Boyd & John Sellers, makes the case pretty nicely.

Regardless of whether the rumors are true, any resolution that takes King George's finger off the button gets my approval. Go on and email your Senator here.

Also, you can follow progress of S.Res.356 here.
