Censored In US Media (US city council opposes war with Iran)

The Charlottesville City Council in Virginia has approved a resolution that calls on Congress and the White House to refrain from launching any military action against Iran.

The resolution approved on Tuesday also urges Congress to end all current ground wars engaged in by the United States and to significantly reduce military spending. 

The document argues that the US high military spending has drained funds from its domestic priorities, including education, health care, energy and tax relief. 

“The City Council of Charlottesville, Virginia, calls on the US Congress and the US President to end foreign ground and drone wars, refrain from entering new military ventures in Iran, and reduce base military spending in order to meet vital human needs, promote job creation, re-train and re-employ those losing jobs in the process of conversion to non-military industries, rebuild our infrastructure, aid municipal and state governments, and develop a new economy based upon renewable, sustainable energy,” the document stated.
