Seattle Times letters to the editor

Iran’s nuclear potential should alarm every American

Our national policy should force Iran to give up its nuclear ambitions

The “deal” with Iran that supposedly halts its atomic bomb development should shock and alarm every American [“Give peace a chance in Iran,” Opinion, Nov. 27].

Iran gave up nothing and got billions in relief from sanctions. It will not impede Iran’s march to nuclear-strike capability in the slightest, and probably will aid it. The implications for the future may be as profound as the infamous Munich Agreement.

I urge readers to support those representatives and senators who are pressing for greater sanctions. If sanctions are effective, tighter sanctions would advance our aims — even more effectively. Our national policy should be nothing short of forcing Iran to give up their nuclear ambitions, not to elicit worthless promises from a relentless exporter of terrorism.

This is a tragedy that will lead to more war, not less, as happened after the Munich Agreement. Do not believe for a moment that this makes us safer, and do not rejoice. Those who do are reprising hollow echoes of “peace in our time.”

— Robert Wilkes, Bellevue
