How have threats of deepening sanctions and a new U.S.-led war on Iran affected the broader Middle East? How would an expanded war affect Iranians and their neighbors? How does the conflict with Iran relate to the U.S. occupation of Iraq,the 2006 Israeli invasion of Lebanon,and intensifying Israeli attacks against and occupation of Palestine? Why is the United States escalating a conflict with Iran by focusing on its alleged nuclear ambitions? How can the anti-war movement in the United States grow and resist an attack against Iran? What would solidarity with the Iranian people look like?
