Dear Senator Patrick Leahy,

Thank you so much for your reply. I am so happy to hear that you strongly oppose the use of military force against Iran. I fully agreed with what you said that any pre-emptive military strike would cause a great loss of innocent lives, further inflame anti-American sentiment in many countries, and potentially ignite a wider war in the Middle East.

This is my reply to Senator Saxy Chambliss, “If Netanyahu pre-emptive strike Iran he will bring the whole world down to the abyss. The stability of the entire region would be subject to further threat, and I don’t think the US and the world would want that. Imagine the phenomenal spike we would see in oil prices if that were to happen! A Third World War is not far-fetched because war start from regional then global whereby Russian and China are forced to protect their asset in Iran. Therefore we MUST do our very best to stop Netanyahu government to bomb Iran because there is too much to risk if he does so. http://dearmmlee.wordpress.com/category/petition-palestine/senator-saxy-chambliss/

You said, “The stakes are high, and I do not take lightly the threat that Iran poses. But unless the United States is facing imminent attack, I support strong, well-coordinated multilateral efforts against Iran, not fruitless and costly military intervention.”

Please hear what Scott Ritter has to say, “We Are Not Allowed to Critize Israel!” http://www.youtu.be/lXAbHHgxT6o

Love, light, peace, harmony and unity,

Dear Ms. Sun Wah:

Iran, intent on developing a nuclear weapons program, poses serious dangers to the entire Middle East region and has emerged as one of the most polarizing countries on the world stage. Now the United States, Israel, and our allies are debating whether sanctions, increased diplomatic pressure, intelligence activities, or military action can stop Iran’s nuclear program.

At this point, I strongly oppose the use of military force against Iran. Any pre-emptive military strike would cause a great loss of innocent lives, further inflame anti-American sentiment in many countries, and potentially ignite a wider war in the Middle East.  It would also, as many experts have noted, drive Iran’s nuclear program further underground and make it even harder to monitor in the future. Although some present a false choice between preemptive military attacks and containment, I believe that a preemptive strike would merely delay containment.

The United States and other countries have instituted significant, coordinated sanctions aimed at Iran’s banks, oil and gas industries, and against companies involved in its nuclear industry. I believe that our best strategy for dealing with the Iranian Government is to pursue harsher sanctions and more directed , higher-level, and sustained diplomacy aimed at ending Iran’s development of highly enriched uranium and the placement of all of its 20% low enriched uranium with a trusted third-party state. While Iran presently faces crippling sanctions, we still have not exhausted all of our economic and diplomatic tools. Even though Iran’s leaders bluff and bluster that our sanctions have no effect, there are indicators that Tehran is looking for a way out.

The stakes are high, and I do not take lightly the threat that Iran poses. But unless the United States is facing imminent attack, I support strong, well-coordinated multilateral efforts against Iran, not fruitless and costly military intervention.

Thank you for contacting me.

Sincerely,

PATRICK LEAHY
United States Senator

Dear Senator Patrick Leahy,

Today is World Harmony Day I have just written to President Obama with the hope that he can stops the Netanyahu government to bombing Iran and let diplomacy succeed because the world cannot afford another war.
