With warships on their way to the Persian Gulf and the White House reviewing plans to send as many as 120,000 troops to the Middle East, the United States is setting up the possibility of war with Iran.

Last spring, the United States pulled out of the multilateral Iran nuclear deal. Since then, the administration has consistently escalated it’s provocations towards Iran—at times over the objections of the Pentagon.

There is another way: working with members of Congress of both parties, FCNL is highlighting the dangers of this confrontational approach and urging action to prevent another senseless war.

FCNL lobbyists and advocates were critical to securing the Iran nuclear deal in 2015. We need your help to lobby Congress to deescalate tensions with Iran and prevent another devastating war in the Middle East.
