Stephanie Murphy on War & Peace

 

 


Do not allow regime in Tehran to acquire a nuclear weapon

Iran is a leading state sponsor of terror, and, through its proxies, has carried out attacks against U.S. and Israeli citizens. That is why the United States must not allow the regime in Tehran to acquire a nuclear weapon. The United States must vigorously enforce the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action through a policy of distrust and verify, taking advantage of the unprecedented verification measures in the agreement while keeping all options on the table to respond to noncompliance. The complete, unobstructed implementation of the JCPOA will be a top priority of mine in Congress. We must also continue our efforts to aggressively counter Iran's malign influence throughout the region, including its threats against Israel and other regional allies.

ISIS & Hezbollah pose serious threats to U.S. interests

The civil war in Syria and the proliferation of armed extremist groups in the region--from ISIS in Syria, Iraq, and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula to Hezbollah in Lebanon and Palestinian terrorist organizations like Hamas--pose serious threats to U.S. interests and Israeli security. Many of these groups can target Israeli civilians and critical infrastructure while operating from civilian areas themselves in an effort to delegitimize military action against them. In addition to preserving Israel's qualitative military edge and promoting her right to defend herself, Stephanie will also strengthen U.S. partnerships in the region to defeat these threats and advance the common interest of countering violent extremism, instability, and terror.

Supports American intervention in Mideast beyond air support.

Murphy supports the PVS survey question on Mideast intervention

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'National Security: Do you support increased American intervention in Iraq and Syria beyond air support?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
