Jeff Latas released a statement last night:
`This is a very serious situation that looks eerily similar to what we saw in Iraq only three and a half years ago," Latas said. `We need to give diplomacy a chance. Any military action at this point will fan the flames of hatred across the Islamic world. World opinion has already shifted from viewing Americans with sympathy and respect to viewing us
as cavalier bullies.
Any military action against Iran could push us into the next World War. If a nuclear option is used, the United States will be viewed in similar light as 1930's Germany, and this nation will be facing a dismal future. I for one will not stand idle and watch this great nation be misled, once again, into a military fiasco. I deplore the thought of my country contributing to global instability, and I deplore the thought of Americans becoming the targets of further global hostility.
An attack on Iran, especially one that could be nuclear, will harm the United States more than we have ever seen. We are now in a new arms race, and the nuclear non-proliferation treaty is now threatened because the United States government is turning towards a course of extreme violence versus diplomacy."
This is one individual that we should stand behind. He has the experience, dedication, conviction. Facing any of the Republicans in this race, he is the winner. People of Southern Arizona need to know this, let's help him out.
