What do Pat Buchanan, former Cent Comm commander General Jim Mattis, and Peace Action West have in common?
We all know that we must seize the moment for diplomacy with Iran.

The consensus for diplomacy is growing. We had unprecedented success with the House letter signed by 131 representatives. The new Iranian president is sending positive signals, including nominating a foreign minister with strong connections to the US. Now we need to show that the momentum is unstoppable.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is circulating a new letter to show that the Senate is also on board with diplomacy. We caught our opponents off-guard with our success in the House, but they’re ready to push back now.

You’ve been hearing from us a lot about Iran lately—and that’s a good thing. We’re on the cusp of the most progress we’ve seen in years, but our success will depend on you raising your voices.
We should certainly try to continue with diplomacy with Iran’s nuclear weapons program a while longer, but we should be under no illusions about there being much chance it will work and we should be aware that there’s no chance it will work unless Iran is made to realize that it will face unacceptable consequences if it doesn’t send its drive to obtain nuclear weapons.
Alan, I have to disagree with you that threats are the most effective way to resolve tensions with Iran. There have been plenty of threats over the last several years, with no positive results. I think we can all understand the basic diplomatic concepts as they play out in our daily lives- people respond to incentives, and to deals that seems fair and mutually beneficial, and there are ways to get there with Iran.
