#NoIranWar: #AfghanistanTuesday times TEN!

This week I'm encouraging all the top #AfghanistanTuesday tweeters to focus on getting the word out about #NoIranWar. Here's why:

* Saturday, February 4 is a National Day of Action to Stop a U.S. War on Iran. Over 25 cities in the U.S. and Canada already have #NoIranWar rallies planned!

* If we really want to get the U.S. out of Afghanistan, the very best thing we could do is to act NOW to PREVENT the U.S. entry into ANOTHER war. The sooner the talk of war against Iran stops, the sooner we can return to the difficult problem of getting the U.S. out of Afghanistan.

* This is an opportunity to build the #AfghanistanTuesday network. We've talked a lot about the need to dramatically increase the number of Tuesdayistas and get the antiwar word out. This is an opportunity to make that real.

"Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which
to place it and I shall move the world."


That's why I'm reaching out to top #AfghanistanTuesday tweeters to ask yourself, "How can I use my Twitter network to increase the reach of the #NoIranWar effort by a factor of TEN?"

If the Occupy movement has taught me one thing, it is that every time I hear some person or group of people being described as "different," I should stop and think. And think again. Would it really be possible for U.S. leaders to be talking about war with Iran if people here stopped to think about how different people there aren't?

Tuesdayistas are people who (a) take time each week to participate in a national (and now global) conversation about ending the war in Afghanistan; AND (b) help spread the word by reaching out to others (who will reach out to others (who will reach out to others .... to do the same!

Here are seven big reasons people should be VERY wary of any and all statements that about how Iran is "asking for it" . . . why they are tweeting every Friday with the #NoIranWar hashtag . . . and why they are reaching out every day to members of Congress to resist the "Iran Threat Reduction Act" . . . .
