Twenty-nine of the nation's top scientists, including six Nobel laureates, have written a letter to President Obama praising the Iran nuclear deal. The scientists' letter states, "We consider that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) the United States and its partners negotiated with Iran will advance the cause of peace and security in the Middle East and can serve as a guidepost for future non-proliferation agreements."
Never miss a local story.
They go on to say that it contains "much more stringent constraints than any previously negotiated non-proliferation framework." And that it is "a technically sound, stringent and innovative deal that will provide the necessary assurance in the coming decade and more that Iran is not developing nuclear weapons."
In addition, three dozen retired U.S. generals and admirals have released an open letter supporting the Iran Nuclear Deal and urging Congress to do the same. The generals' letter states that the Iran deal is "the most effective means currently available to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons."
They go on to say, "We agree with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, who said on July 29, 2015, 'relieving the risk of a nuclear conflict with Iran diplomatically is superior than trying to do that militarily.'" In addition they point out, "If at some point it becomes necessary to consider military action against Iran, gathering sufficient international support for such an effort would only be possible if we have first given the diplomatic path a chance."
World leaders across the globe have praised the Iran nuclear deal as a "robust agreement," "historic," and a "turning point." The only groups opposing this deal are militants in Israel and Republican politicians in the United States. These are the same Republicans who have opposed everything President Obama has accomplished.
There is no better deal.
