Millions of dollars worth of crazed anti-Iran ads will hit the airwaves this week in an effort to pressure senators to oppose President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. One group, the American Security Initiative, has spent over $1.4 million just to influence the Democratic leader in waiting, Senator Chuck Schumer!
It’s only a matter of days before the terms of the Iran nuclear deal are finalized and presented to the American Congress for a vote. This vote can take us down the fast track toward peace, or down the tortuous path toward war.
The Founding Fathers warned us about getting involved in military adventures overseas. George Washington cautioned our new nation against the "mischiefs of foreign intrigue." James Madison said the US should steer clear of unnecessary wars. Secretary of State John Quincy Adams warned in 1821 that America should not go abroad in search of “monsters to destroy”—for such folly would destroy “her own spirit.”
This July 4, be a patriot! Call out the nefarious activities of groups like the American Security Initiative and work to prevent the US country from getting involved in another war of aggression. Contact Senator Schumer, and if you have another moment, call your Senator now and tell him/her you support the president’s peace talks with Iran!
