So, it MAY be that it's less likely for a war with Iran thanks to this 
morning's news; 2 weeks ago Politico noted that one of the "selling point" 
for the Iran deal was that if Iran slips up it can be used as a reason to 
go to war:

Nonetheless, we still have ongoing US wars in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, 
as well as the ongoing occupation of Palestinian territories, the war come 
home in the form of police shootings and militarized crackdowns on 
protests against said shootings, crumbling infrastructure, etc.

As such PJW and other groups are gearing up for a multi-issue mobilization 
centered around the 14th anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan (Oct 
7) to be held Sunday October 11-- please share this calendar listing and 
if your group wants to endorse or cosponsor let us know here at PJW.
