In a memorandum addressed to Obama, members of the Veteran Professionals for Sanity (VPS) suggested the president to denounce publicly the attack and thus to avoid a war of unforeseeable consequences, according to Uruguayan newspaper La Republica.

The memorandum says Netanyahu is planning a surprise attack to force the United States to provide full support to its military campaign.
The warning is based on comments made by the current Zionist prime minister who noted that the US won’t get in their way and that his country counts on the support of eighty percent of Americans.
Israeli military authorities said they are analyzing a possible attack on Iran and that US and Israel’s war vessels, carrying nuclear weapons, are heading to the area.
The former CIA officers highlight they hope advisers have told Obama that Israel's primary concern is a regime change not Iranian nuclear weapons.
The document explains that Israel will likely trigger the attack before conversations between Iran and the international community resume in September, as scheduled.
Such conversations would likely lead to an agreement that would send a large portion of Iran's enriched uranium abroad and the Israeli government, which considers such conversations as a “trick”, would try to prevent that from happening since it would greatly weaken its scariest rationale for an attack on Iran, the memo explains.
As the Cuban leader Fidel Castro has repeatedly warned, the US former CIA officers point out the danger an Israel-US attack on Iran represents.
In a recent interview with four Venezuelan journalists, Fidel Castro stressed that Israel is the only country that wouldn’t try to persuade Obama from holding the war.
The memorandum was signed by former CIA officers Phil Giraldi and Larry Johnson, and by Special Forces and Defense Intelligence Agency Colonel W. Patrick Lang; US Army Intelligence and CIA officer Ray McGovern; FBI officer Coleen Rowley; US Army Reserve and State Department Foreign Office’s Ann Wright.
The document also describes actions that President Obama could take to prevent a war.
