 Win Without War Statement on the Extension of Negotiations with Iran

Washington, DC- The Win Without War coalition released the following statement by Advocacy Director, Stephen Miles, on the extension of negotiations with Iran. 

“The interim deal has frozen Iran’s nuclear program and, with this extension, it will stay frozen while our diplomats seal the deal. We are doing today what we should have done in Iraq a decade ago: letting diplomacy work so that we can have inspectors on the ground, not boots on the ground.

Negotiations between the international community and Iran have already made more progress in six months than a decade of sanctions and the threat of military action. We are pleased to see that negotiators are going to stay at the table and finish the job of peacefully solving one of America’s most pressing national security threats.

“Unfortunately, some of the same voices who once sold our nation to war in Iraq on lies about weapons of mass destruction are at it again. Fortunately, Americans are ready to fight back. In the coming days, it will be up to Congress to chose who to listen to: Dick Cheney and those banging the drums of war, or the American public who want to let diplomacy work.”


Win Without War is a coalition of national organizations with diverse constituencies originally founded in opposition to the Iraq War. The coalition remains active in opposition to the continued U.S. war in Afghanistan, the dangerous rush to war with Iran, and the underlying national security strategy on which these conflicts are based.  We seek a fundamentally new approach to meet the national security challenges of the United States that is consistent with our nation’s highest values.
