U.S. Must Continue Diplomatic Efforts
Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today addressed the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform arguing that with troops spread thinly in Iraq and Afghanistan, “the United States cannot afford another war. We must find a more effective means of engaging Iran.
“Sanctions play into the hands the leaders of Iran and undermine the efforts of Iranian people who have courageously challenged their government, often at the cost of their lives.
“We must continue to work behind the scenes to bring Iran to the table… We must promote democracy without creating sanctions that undermine the very people we claim to care about.
“I oppose nuclear proliferation for military purposes for all countries; at the same time it is pretty clear that sanctions have proven to be a failed policy.
Kucinich addressed the Committee during its hearing examining the implementation of Iran sanctions.
