Tell Congress: Don't sabotage diplomacy with Iran

The petition to members of the U.S. House and Senate reads:
"Don't sabotage diplomacy with Iran. The alternative to a negotiated deal will almost certainly be another U.S. war in the Middle East. While negotiations are ongoing, it's crucial that members of the House and the Senate let the diplomats do their job, rather than seek to impose further constraints on what are already incredibly complex and politically sensitive negotiations."

Dear 5849376,

No war with Iran

Late last Friday night, with the clock ticking down to a Sunday deadline, diplomats from the United State and five other world powers announced a four-month extension of negotiations with Iran. A final, comprehensive deal on Iran's nuclear program is now clearly within reach.

But the extension hadn't even been announced before congressional opponents of diplomacy in both parties started calling for an end to further talks and the imposition of additional sanctions on Iran unless Iran agreed to any number of completely unrealistic demands.

At this key juncture, it's crucial that members of the House and the Senate let the diplomats do their job, rather than seek to impose further constraints on what are already incredibly complex and politically sensitive negotiations.

This extension of talks ought to be seen as a major milestone for diplomacy. Iran, contrary to the dire predictions of war hawks in Congress, met every one of its obligations under the interim deal that's been in place for the last six months – including eliminating its entire stockpile of highly enriched uranium.

In addition, the extension only happened because all of the parties involved saw that substantial progress had already been made toward reaching a final agreement.

While diplomacy may not succeed in the end, the alternative to a negotiated deal will almost certainly be another war. So it would be reckless and irresponsible for the United States to walk away from the table now.

We need to make sure President Obama has the time and political space he needs to give diplomacy its best chance of success.

With a deal within reach, what we don't need is members of the House and Senate trying to grab the wheel and drive these talks off a cliff.
