It can be argued that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee last week passed legislation that might make it harder for the international community to reach a final agreement with Iran on its nuclear program.
Dozens of Representatives on the other side of the Capitol are taking a much more positive step to support the historic framework reached with Iran on its nuclear program.
Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), and David Price (D-NC) are getting other members to sign a letter that supports diplomacy with Iran over war.
Call your Rep. today at 202-224-3121 and ask them if they have signed the Schakowsky letter that supports the current negotiations with Iran. If they have, thank them. If not urge them to do so soon before the letter is sent. This letter is important as it shown support in Congress for the historic framework reached by the international community and Iran that will keep it from making a nuclear weapon if it chose to do so. The details and final technical points still need to be negotiated and a final accord signed by the June 30th deadline.
Opponents of the deal fail to provide a better alternative. We could break off negotiations, but that would put Iran in a place where it could make the materials need for a crude nuclear bomb within weeks. We could push for more sanctions. The U.S. has almost maxed out on its sanctions and there isn’t the appetite for more sanctions from other countries. And the greatest folly would be to use military intervention that would only set Iran back a few years and push them to definitively obtain a nuclear warhead as soon as possible.
Dial your Rep. now at 202-224-3121 and make sure they have signed the Schakowsky letter that supports diplomacy with Iran. If they have, thank them. If not urge them to do so soon before the letter is sent.
We’re on the verge of a historic breakthrough for peace. As the letter states: “This issue is above politics. The stakes are too great, and the alternatives are too dire.”
Please call today!
Humbly for Peace,
Paul Kawika Martin
