"President Obama has secured a major breakthrough in negotiations to limit Iran's nuclear program, opening the door to a final agreement. Voting for legislation that would derail negotiations over a final agreement is tantamount to a vote for war with Iran."

Dear 5849376,

Today the United States, Iran and five other world powers announced a historic breakthrough in talks to limit Iran's nuclear program in exchange for lifting sanctions.

For all of us who want to see global conflicts resolved through peaceful diplomacy rather than bloody wars, the announcement of a framework for a final agreement – which comes after decades of often-violent conflict and years of negotiations – is a monumental achievement.

A final deal will not only makes America safer, but will empower reformers in Iran. Republicans are already trying to force us into a war with Iran by sabotaging a final deal, but they can't do it without support from key Democrats. That's where you come in.

Democrats will soon have to vote on legislation intended to kill this agreement. Democrats will have to own this vote – like the 2002 vote to give Pres. George W. Bush authorization to invade Iraq – for their entire career.

We need to make it clear to party leadership that they must lead their caucus in supporting President Obama's pursuit of peace. We have to put them on notice that if Democrats provide the votes Republicans need to start a war with Iran they will be held accountable.

Negotiators have until June 30 to finalize an agreement, but, while technical details remain to be worked out, the broad framework of the deal is in place – and it's a good one. Iran has agreed to tight restrictions on its nuclear program that will close off any pathway to building a nuclear weapon, and it has agreed to intrusive inspections to verify compliance. In exchange, major world powers, including the United States and the UN will lift certain sanctions on Iran.

For Democrats, the choice couldn't be clearer: Support the president as he finalizes a deal, or join Republicans in voting for war. It's that simple.

Two bills to sabotage diplomacy and put us on a path to war have already been put forward. One is sponsored by Democrat Sen. Robert Menendez and Republican Sen. Mark Kirk, and the other by Sen. Menendez and Republican Sen. Bob Corker. And it's possible that others will be introduced.

With a good deal on the table, the moment of truth has arrived for Democrats. Either they get behind a deal to limit Iran's nuclear program peacefully, or they lead us to war. There aren't other options.

The stakes are enormous. The United States would be blamed by our allies for sabotaging a final deal. The global sanctions regime would collapse. It would become easier for Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. Anti-American hardliners in Iran would gain politically. And we would almost certainly be pushed into a costly war of choice with Iran.

CREDO activists have played a key role in defending negotiations from warmongers in Congress. Since the talks began, hundreds of thousands of CREDO members have signed petitions, we've made many thousands of calls, and hundreds of us have attended meetings with our members of Congress.

Today's announcement is a huge victory for all of us. But it's also the beginning of the fiercest stage of this fight. Republicans and their Democratic allies will try harder than ever to prevent this deal from becoming a reality – and it's up to us to stop them.

Tell the Senate Democratic Leadership: A vote to derail the Iran nuclear deal is a vote for war. Don't let your caucus give Republicans the votes they need to start a war with Iran. Click the link below to sign the petition:
