In a region decimated by war and conflict, a U.S. led bombing campaign against Iran would make matters worse—especially for U.S. soldiers deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Congress must oppose U.S. bombing and instead work for a peaceful resolution to the nuclear issue by urging the administration to engage in talks with the Iranian government.
There is time to work for a diplomatic resolution. The CIA estimates that if Iran decided to build a nuclear weapon it would take 5 to 10 years.
A military attack would inevitably kill large numbers of innocent people, foster even more hatred and condemnation of the U.S., and dramatically increase the instability of the Middle East.
Attack scenarios have shown that military strikes on Iran would not achieve the stated goal of stopping their nuclear program.
