Dennis Kucinich: We Cannot Afford War with Iran

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.

  4. Isn’t it building up to that, another middle east conflict with Iran?

    Indications in the main stream media seems to consistently point to it as an eventuality. Not so sure the government, congress, could nor would stop it, since the last gulf conflict they have proven to be impotent in stopping the criminal raping of 2 sovereign nations, under false pretenses. What’s one more?
