Dear Senator Schumer, When you announced your decision to vote against the nuclear agreement with Iran, you explained your reasons in a nearly 1,700-word statement that is thoughtful in substance and civil in tone.It is difficult to imagine that a serious military campaign against Iran would set back its nuclear program as much as this deal does from the start.You argue that the United States might prefer to restore sanctions in part and that other countries might not go along with this.Iran is going to get sanctions relief no matter what. The international sanctions against Iran were put in place by other countries solely to get to a nuclear deal. None would go along with extending the sanctions, given that Iran has produced what they all regard as an acceptable agreement.The non-nuclear tensions between Iran and the United States predate Tehran's nuclear program, continue today, and will persist in the future. But they would be much worse if Iran had a nuclear threshold capacity.Rejecting this deal would produce an Iran that ramps up its nuclear program, without inspections or constraints, with sanctions unraveling, and an America that is humiliated and isolated in the world.
The European Union is a great idea that has gone awry
It’s time for Congress to curb the powers of the president
Everywhere, there is growing backlash to populism
