State of Oregon Archives: on War & Peace


Mark Callahan: Iran nuclear deal endangers U.S. and our allies

I am fully against the Iran Nuclear Deal! Recently, Ron Wyden came out in support of the Iran Nuclear Deal. Senator Wyden's support of the Iran Nuclear Deal endangers not only the national security of the United States, but also our allies in the Middle East.

Monica Wehby: Ensure that Iranian nukes don't threaten Israel

Monica also believes that the bond between the United States and Israel must remain rock solid. We must always stand by our strongest allies, especially in a region that is going through such turmoil. As the nuclear negotiations proceed with Iran we must be ever mindful that whatever deal is struck does not jeopardize the security of Israel.

Jeff Merkley: Opposed Iraq war from the very beginning, against Party

When the candidates were asked where their stance differs from their own party’s, Merkley mentioned having opposed the Iraq war from the very beginning. When Smith challenged that assertion, Merkley shot back. “You know about that speech, yet you choose to mislead the citizens of this state,” he said. “We are mired in war. We are mired in debt.”
