Oppose new sanctions

Having been in Washington, D.C., this past weekend I went to Sen. Sherrod Brown to encourage him not to co-sponsor the new proposed Iran sanctions bill. He said firmly that he will not c-osponsor the bill.

National security experts and a recent U.S. intelligence community assessment stated “new sanctions would undermine the prospects for a successful comprehensive nuclear agreement with Iran.” Nine former U.S. ambassadors and other national security experts have warned, “the bill would threaten the prospects for success in the current negotiations and thus present us and our friends with a stark choice – military action or living with a nuclear Iran.”

I urge readers to write Brown and affirm him in his decision and to encourage him to make a public statement regarding his stance.
