The Horror of An Attack On Iran

Medical Consequences of a Nuclear Attack on Iran: By Physicians for Social Responsibility

In this report published in 2006, the PSR tends to support US sponsored pressures on Iran regarding its alleged nuclear weapons program : "The use of nuclear weapons against Iran would be illegal under international law. Their use would outrage the international community because of the scale of the medical and environmental catastrophe that would result. PSR urges the President to use diplomatic means to resolve this crisis in the months and years before Iran is likely to achieve nuclear weapons capability. Iran must be engaged and pulled back into the international community." The PSR's most recent stance, following the release of the December 2007 National Intelligence Estimate, acknowledges that Iran does not have a nuclear program. "But just as no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq, a U.S. National Intelligence Estimate proclaims that Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program." According to former PSR president, Dr. Thomasson, in a recent statement: “because Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program the president has changed his rhetoric to convince the U.S. public that Iran should be attacked because it is interfering with our goals in Iraq. The Congress must demonstrate greater oversight so that America cannot be misled again.”
