Action alert: the hawks are angry
It seems we have ruffled some feathers.
We knew after our big victory for diplomacy with Iran last week, the hawks would get riled up. It didn’t take long.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told a cheering audience on Tuesday that he would introduce a resolution to authorize force against Iran if this complex issue doesn’t get resolved by the fall.  Getting ready for war just two months into the new Iranian president’s term reveals a complete lack of interest in a diplomatic solution. And an apparent lack of interest in reality. Graham actually said, “My goal is to avoid war, and the best way to avoid war is to let the Iranians know they’re going to face one and lose.”
If we’re going to rein in hawks like Graham who would push us towards war, we need other senators to push back. Tell your senators to speak out publicly for reinvigorated diplomacy with Iran.
We’ve made amazing progress by getting more than a quarter of the House to speak out for diplomacy with the new Iranian president. We can’t stop there.
The next two months will be crucial, and there will be many opportunities for our opponents to try to sabotage diplomacy. Hassan Rouhani will be inaugurated next week, and we have to give President Obama political space to reinvigorate the diplomatic effort.
Your senators will be facing loud opposition to smart diplomacy. If we want to stop another war, we have to be louder. Take action now to tell your senators to speak out for diplomacy.
Thank you for sticking with this fight.
