WHEREAS, stability in the Middle East is a high priority for Israel, the United States and the world; while military interventions in the Middle East have been lengthy and costly resulting in civilian and military casualties with only mixed success and unintended consequences including the rise of Isis; and
WHEREAS, nuclear experts and intelligence sources indicate that Iran is only months away from the capability of making a nuclear bomb with approximately 20,000 centrifuges for uranium enrichment; while the Nuclear Agreement with Iran will allow inspectors on the ground and reduce Iran’s stockpile of uranium to about 2%, a 98% reduction from present levels, and lock many of these 20,000 centrifuges so they cannot be used to enrich uranium; and
WHEREAS, it is acknowledged that this Agreement is an important start in redefining the relationship with Iran which has been problematic for many years, that this Agreement does not preclude the United States from taking any other actions deemed necessary with a repressive regime, and that this Agreement will use diplomatic channels to secure peace before placing our troops in harm’s way; then
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the members of the Ventura County Democratic Party endorse the ratification of the Iranian Nuclear Agreement; and
THEREFORE, BE IT FUTHER RESOLVED that the members of the Ventura County Democratic Party support the Honorable Member of Congress from the 26th District, Julia Brownley, and our Honorable Senators, Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein, in their decisions to endorse ratification of the Iran Nuclear Agreement.
