Joe Kennedy III on War & Peace

 

 


Stay vigilant with Iran as we leave Afghanistan

We cannot afford to disengage from the world. But our engagement must be smart and strategic and use a balance of soft and hard power.

As draw-downs of troops in Afghanistan follow the reduction of our forces in Iraq, we must stay vigilant in ensuring that Afghanistan is never used again as a base for attacks against our citizens.

Efforts to contain the growth of nuclear weapons are also essential, including crippling sanctions on Iran to ensure they do not acquire nuclear arms. Iran has made very clear their threat to our good friend and ally Israel. A nuclear-armed Iran is not just a threat to Israel but to the world.

Bring troops home quickly & prudently before end of 2014

Q: Do you support United States' combat operations in Afghanistan?

A: Yes.

Q: Do you support a timetable for withdrawal from Afghanistan?

A: Yes. As we draw-down the number of troops, we must stay vigilant in ensuring that Afghanistan is never used again as a base for attacks against our citizens. I support bringing our troops home quickly and prudently before the end of 2014.

Crippling sanctions on Iran to ensure no nuclear arms

Q: Should the US use military force in order to prevent Iran from possessing a nuclear weapon?

A: Yes. Efforts to contain the growth of nuclear weapons are essential, including crippling sanctions on Iran to ensure they do not acquire nuclear arms. We can take no options off the table in preventing Iran from gaining nuclear weapons-- it would pose not only a threat to Israel but potentially set off a destructive nuclear arms race in the region.
