Ted Lieu on War & Peace

 

 


Diplomacy with Iran ok, but it must never be based on trust

Ted Lieu will continue his record of standing up to Iran and holding them accountable.

Although Israel faces many threats today--from Hamas to Hezbollah to chaos in Syria and Egypt--the single gravest threat to both Israel's and America's security is an Iran with a nuclear weapon. Congress must remain in the process of detailing what a final solution would be, and strong sanctions need to continue should talks fail. A nuclear capable Iran must never happen.

While Sen. Lieu supports diplomacy, it must never be based on "trust." We cannot trust the current Iranian regime, which is controlled by an oppressive, theocratic, authoritarian government that continues to fund terrorists. All diplomacy with Iran on the nuclear issue must be based on verifiable, achievable objectives.

No bombing North Korea for possessing nuclear weapons

Q: Do you support targeting suspected terrorists outside of official theaters of conflict?

A: Yes.

Q: Should the U.S. use military force in order to prevent governments hostile to the United States from possessing a nuclear weapon?

A: No elected official could reasonably answer just YES or NO to the previous question. Should we bomb North Korea now because they are hostile to the US and have nuclear weapons? NO. Should we use military force to prevent other rogue nations from getting nuclear weapons? It depends on the circumstances. It also depends on my review of classified information.
