To: President Donald Trump, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate

Congress: Choose diplomacy over war. Pursue peace with Iran.

President Obama has invested in a diplomatic solution to Iran's nuclear program—committing to peace, not war, as a preferred course of action. We call on Congress to stand with him in this effort.

Why is this important?

The U.S., Iran, and the international community have reached a historic agreement to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, hopefully putting us on a path to ending decades of hostility. Unfortunately, war hawks in Congress are committed to undermining diplomacy.

Every member of the Senate and House of Representatives needs to understand that the choice is between this diplomatic deal or a path toward war. We cannot afford another disastrous, costly, unnecessary war in the Middle East. We cannot let Iran become another Iraq.

Reasons for signing

  • Here's a similar, more recent petition, please sign this one too.
  • Diplomacy leads to more nations obtaining some of their policy objectives. War, in contrast, does not solve the problems precipitating war. Instead, war creates many new problems.
  • stop war! peace over war. its racist and its fascist. you pledge to be peaceful on earth.
