News flash: diplomacy works. After just two rounds of talks with the new Iranian government, western diplomats are “very, very close” to a deal. But the prospect of a peaceful solution is riling up the hawks.
Some impatient senators are still pushing for sanctions that could breach the fragile trust being built and undermine this progress. The administration clearly understands the stakes. As spokesperson Jay Carney pointed out, “the alternative is military action.”

It’s truly amazing how much diplomatic progress has been made in such a short time. Secretary Kerry summed it up: “We just talked more in 30 hours than we have in those prior 30 years.” He’s briefing senators right now urging them to let diplomacy work. The hope for a peaceful solution is real, but it’s under threat.
Show the Senate we won’t let them march us into another war. Tweet your senators to support diplomacy and block additional sanctions on Iran.
(Not on Twitter? No problem. Call your senators at 202-224-3121 and tell them to support the diplomatic talks with Iran and oppose any new sanctions that could disrupt diplomacy.)
