Letter: Honor the P5+1 agreement

To the Editor:

We are constantly being bombarded in the media by lobbyists who want us to intervene around the world on behalf of foreign governments. “Choose me,” they say.

The former Communist states want us to be more confrontational toward Russia at the same time they cut military budgets below their pledges to NATO. Saudi Arabia wants us to engage more in Syria while they flood the market with cheap oil to kill our drive toward energy independence.

Now Israel, AIPAC, the American Security Initiative (one of the founders is a registered lobbyist for Saudi Arabia), Advancing Colorado (with direct ties to the Koch Brothers) and the evangelical right are telling us to scrap the Iran nuclear inspection agreement so they can play out their sectarian fantasies. We all know that the best option in a multiple choice test is often “none of the above.”

Iran has been, is now, and forever will be a nuclear weapons breakout state. The only realistic way to stop them from going further is to honor the P5+1 agreement.
