Treaty with Iran is much better than war

Americans are tired of war. We’re tired of watching a generation of our youth being sacrificed so our tax dollars can enrich the defense industry, and we’re tired of watching those tax dollars go full circle and into the campaign coffers of our Congress, the very people who led us to war. The treaty with Iran may not be perfect, but America is owed at least a chance at peace. As so many “experts” have pointed out, the alternative is yet another war, and with it comes the horrible price our youth will pay with their lives. The only winner will be the defense industry, and they’ve already made their fortunes at the expense of our children. When do our leaders say “enough?” It’s more than time that our congressional leaders start looking for peaceful solutions to conflict with Iran. The proposed treaty is supposed to do just that.
