“This administration, like Neville Chamberlain, is yielding large and bloody conflict in the Middle East involving Iranian nuclear weapons.”
I wish I could say these were the words of an irrelevant fringe commentator, but they came from Illinois Senator Mark Kirk (R) in response to the Obama administration’s pragmatic negotiations with Iran. And he’s not alone. John “Bomb, Bomb Iran” McCain is describing Secretary Kerry as a “human wrecking ball” in diplomatic talks.
Peace Action West and our partners have helped create lots of positive momentum for diplomacy on Iran, and we need to show Congress we’re not going to let up.

The administration has never been this aggressive in telling Congress that passing sanctions could harm the diplomatic effort. That’s because real success is on the horizon.
If we want to avoid another Iraq, the time for intense pressure is now: when a real viable diplomatic alternative is on the table.
Thank you for being relentless advocates for peace.
