- Are we crazy for noticing the exponentially mounting world political tension surrounding Iran’s nuclear capacity?
- Are we crazy for hearing loud and clear the message of the former US ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, that Israel has only until Saturday, August 21, 2010 to launch a military attack on Iran’s emerging nuclear power plant?
- Are we crazy for being alarmed that Iran says it will defend itself against any military attack on its nuclear facility with whatever means it can?
- Are we crazy for noticing that the Canada Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade has advised Canadians to “Avoid Non-Essential Travel” to Iran and to “Avoid All Travel” to the “Region” surrounding Iran?
- Are we crazy for wanting to persuade President Barack Obama not to enter into nuclear attacks against Iran?
Or are others crazy? For not noticing the geo-political and military crucible heating up over Iran’s nuclear power success? or for noticing but not worrying about the fallout of nuclear attacks and counter-attacks in our own cities?
Fine, we’re the crazy ones.
We’re crazy for peace.
Crazy for Peace 2010 emerged in Winnipeg, Canada in August 2010 as a grassroots organization of Latino-Canadians who are alarmed about the growing political and military tensions over Iran’s nuclear power capacity.
Military strikes by Israel or the US against Iran to pre-empt the success of their nuclear power plant have been foretold. Iran warns it will use its own military arsenal to defend itself against any interference with its nuclear power plant. The deadlock of positions threatens to boil over rapidly as success of Iran’s power plant is imminent at the end of August 2010.
Crushing Iran is the US and Israeli reaction of intolerance to increased power by any state other than the US in the region. After the international debacle caused by the US invasion of Aghanistan and Iraq, who in their right mind would support another US attack in the same region?
Are we crazy for saying, “Oh no, not this time! This time we say ‘NO’ loud and clear!”
