Iran War Hawks Upset as Peace Threat Looms
The United States and other major nations have finally spoken with Iran. In 10 hours of talks, Iran agreed to a framework for ensuring that its nuclear program is only used for civilian purposes.
This prospect for peace was immediately denounced by right-wing Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman and other members of Congress – who may try to block further talks.
A Senate effort to prevent the talks from even beginning had been blocked by Sen. Rand Paul. Now Congress is coming back with more deadly sanctions, ultimatums, and resolutions requiring war.
But Congresswoman Barbara Lee has a bill with 21 cosponsors that would allow and require talks. Tell your Representative to sign onto Barbara Lee's HR 4173, and your Senators to enact the same.
