Letter: Congress should prevent war and vote in favor of Iran deal

Congress should prevent war and vote in favor of Iran deal

In a nuclear world, the planet is too small for any elevated conflicts. The United States, our allies and Iran recently reached a deal to stop Iran from building nuclear weapons. This historic agreement is an opportunity to resolve one of America’s biggest security concerns through diplomacy, not war.

I hope my members of Congress will publicly defend and support this deal. If Congress kills this good deal, Iran could unfreeze its nuclear program, which means either Iran gets a nuclear bomb or we have to fight another war in the Middle East.

After over a decade of war in Iraq, Afghanistan and now Syria, Americans like me are tired of war. Congress should seize this opportunity to vote for a deal – not war – with Iran.
