Diplomacy needed on nuclear threats
President Donald Trump’s bellicose threats against North Korea and Iran are dangerous. Every member of Congress should speak out to support diplomacy and stop Trump’s march to war.
I hope U.S. Sens. Brian Schatz and Mazie Hirono will do everything in their power to save the Iran deal from sabotage by the White House. The president’s actions send signals to other nations.
Ending or undermining the Iran deal will send the message to North Korea and the rest of the world that, even when a country like Iran is subjected to the most rigorous inspection regime to ensure it never develops nuclear weapons, the U.S. won’t hold up its end of the bargain. We already have one nuclear crisis. Let’s not manufacture another one, and let’s use diplomacy to resolve both.
