Linda McMahon on War & Peace

 


Support sanctions on Iran; keep all options on table

Q: Do you believe the sanctions on Iran are proving effective?

BLUMENTHAL: I support strengthening the current structure of sanctions on Iran, until it relinquishes its aspirations for nuclear weapons.

McMAHON: The first, and most important, thing we must do is prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. The CIA has already declared that Iran is capable of producing nuclear weapons within the next few years. While I support building strong international support for sanctions, we cannot wait for the United Nations to enact further restrictions that Iran will simply ignore. I do support the enactment of the recent sanctions by the US and the European Union on Iran. However, with that in mind, I believe the US cannot allow those who would oppose or maliciously delay sanctions dictate the content or the timing of our efforts. The US should continue to exert pressure and press for hard sanctions against Iran until the threat is neutralized. All options in dealing with Iran must remain on the table.

Bring home troops from Afghanistan in victory, not defeat

The President's decision to increase troop levels in Afghanistan was momentous, and it's important that we commit ourselves fully to achieving success.

I do not want to see another multi-year escalation of conflict. I'm gravely troubled about the human costs of war. But we cannot ignore the risks inherent in allowing Afghanistan to become a haven for terrorists. It's my hope that we can bring our troops home safely as soon as possible, but we should bring them home in victory, not defeat.
