Americans Support a Peaceful Deal With Iran By Almost a 2-to-1 Margin

The Elites Want War, But the People Want Peace

While the hawks have desperately been trying to stir up war with Iran for decades, the American public is for peace.

The Washington Post reports:

By a nearly 2 to 1 margin, Americans support the notion of striking a deal with Iran that restricts the nation’s nuclear program in exchange for loosening sanctions, a new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds.


Support outpaces opposition across nearly all demographic and political groups, with liberals (seven in 10) and Democrats (two-thirds) the most supportive. At least six in 10 independents and moderates also back the broad idea of a deal with Iran.

Republicans are about evenly divided on an Iran deal, with 47 percent in support and 43 percent opposed. The split contrasts with Republican lawmakers’ widespread backing of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech deriding the potential deal in early March before a joint meeting of lawmakers. Additionally, all but seven Republican senators signed a letter to Iran’s leadership warning that Congress or a future president could override any agreement made by the Obama administration.

    I hope these people remember how out of touch with their views the Republicans are come voting time.

      “Republicans” is a cliche. Age is a more accurate indicator where people fall in line regarding opinions. The dividing line today is folks under 40 and folks over 50. This is how opinions should be viewed as there is two Republican Parties and two Democrat Parties based on ages of their members.

    America is the “best democracy money can buy”. Israeli-born British author and musician Gilad Atzmon said: “The Israeli realized long ago that buying a good tank is more expensive than buying the entire US political system.”

    American Jewish writer, Steve Lendman says that Washington is not serious in having a deal with the current Iranian regime. It wants a pro-Israel regime change in Tehran.

    On March 17, 2015, ex-UNHRC envoy for the Occupied Palestine, Dr. Richard Falk, posted an article at his personal blog, entitled, Iran’s Nuclear Program: Diplomacy, War, and (in) Security in the Nuclear Age.

    In the article, Falk discusses illegal ‘crippling sanctions’ against Iran claiming these were meant to “exert pressure on Iran to negotiate an agreement that would provide assurance that it was not seeking to acquire nuclear weaponry.”
