MoveOn Criticizes Sen. Coons’ Reckless Comments on Iran

After Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) appeared on Fox and Friends this morning and said military action may be called for against Iran, MoveOn had the following statement.

Statement of MoveOn campaigns director Justin Krebs:

“Senator Coons going on Fox and giving ammunition to Trump administration war hawks who are trying to push the U.S. into a costly, avoidable war with Iran is shameful and beyond dangerous. His comments this morning, within a context of inconclusive intelligence and innuendo, were reckless. Senators need to be putting brakes on the march to war, not fueling it—and need to be demanding the U.S. not take its marching orders from the Saudi regime. MoveOn members in Delaware are reaching out to Senator Coons today and asking him to pursue diplomacy, not war. We can only hope he listens. Millions of lives depend on it.”
