POLL: American Voters Favor Engaging in Diplomacy with Iran
A recent poll conducted by Data for Progress (DFP) discovered that at least 78% of likely voters in the United States indicated that they prefer using diplomacy over military action to tackle Iran’s nuclear energy program.
When survey respondents were asked whether Washington should use all possible diplomatic tools “to put an immediate end to Iran’s nuclear weapons program,” 83% of Democrats, 79% of independents, and 72% of Republican voters agreed.
Only 12% of respondents expressed their desire to go to war with Iran. 9% did not answer this question.
The Cradle noted that the Western corporate press has for decades said Iran is “days away” from a building a nuclear bomb. The Iranian regime has countered said allegations by claiming that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
The majority of poll respondents also indicated that they favor returning to a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). This deal placed restrictions on Iran’s nuclear energy program in exchange for sanctions relief.
Back in 2018, the US government, under the administration of former President Donald Trump, unilaterally withdrew from the JCPOA. From there, the US pursued a maximum pressure strategy against Iran to destroy its economy and bring about regime change. Over the last year, talks to return to the deal have taken place with very little progress.
When they were asked if they support the US trying to craft a new nuclear deal “over war or inaction,” 74% of respondents said they were in favor of “completely preventing Iran from developing its nuclear program … through international monitoring.”
By contrast, 8% of respondents support launching a war against Iran. Only 5% agree that the US should not get involved in Iran’s internal affairs.
So far, the Biden regime has been hesitant about re-entering the deal. In large part, this is due to Israeli pressure on the US government to keep its mortal enemy from improving relations with the US.
According to The Cradle, there are nine nuclear powers across the globe: China, France, India, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan, Russia, and the United Kingdom.
It’s time to wake up and smell the hot java. Iran is not a threat to the US. In fact, it has some interests, such as fighting Sunni extremists, that align with US interests.
Moreover, the US and Israel’s constant saber-rattling towards Iran will likely motivate it to lash out via its proxy forces in Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria. On top of that, if an “Arab NATO” is created to balance against Iran, it could potentially compel Iran to pursue nukes because it will treat such a balancing coalition against it as an existential threat. Nukes are the ultimate expression of national sovereignty in the anarchic shark tank that is international relations.
The proper America First approach to Iran is one of complete non-intervention. That means ending regime change efforts, lifting sanctions, and stopping the deployment of US military assets around Iran’s near abroad. America First patriots must not fall for the unhinged Zionism that has infected the Republican Party of yore.
At the end of the day, a nationalist government does not make foreign policy decisions based on the policy preferences of foreign governments and their most vocal interest groups.
