That letter was this one.  Signed by 100 House Democrats and 4 Republicans to say they support the peaceful effort being under taken by John Kerry in Iran, and that unlike the others (mostly bitter old Republican and apparently John Carney) who want Iran nuked  to show their support for Israel, and afterwards pursue any diplomatic solution, those undersigned instead, prefer the pursuit of a peaceful solution over that of a warmongering one.

Carney did not sign it.  On Monday we will try to determine if he was AWOL on some hiatus, far, far away from performing his governmental duties, or, if he is trying to snuggle up to the Republicans by pretending to be one, at least being too cozy and timid to ruffle their feathers…

Both are odd.  Both question his capacity to represent Delaware in the United States Congress.

If someone says do you agree with me, please sign this letter, usually the failure to sign it, means you do not agree with them, is that correct?  So the assumption whether correct or erroneous, has no other choice than to be that John Carney doesn’t want the peace plan in Iran to work… He supports the Likud.  The radical Israeli’s who want war all the time.

Here are excerpts from the letter, followed by what John is really saying to us by not signing it….

“As Members of Congress—and as Americans—we are united in our unequivocal commitment to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon”….

Unbelievably, John Carney is not.

The proliferation of nuclear weapons in the Middle East would threaten the security of the United States and our allies in the region, particularly Israel.

Unbelievably, John Carney thinks it does the opposite.

At present, however, we believe that Congress must give diplomacy a chance. A bill or resolution that risks fracturing our international coalition or, worse yet, undermining our credibility in future negotiations and jeopardizing hard-won progress toward a verifiable final agreement, must be avoided.

Unbelievably, by not signing, John Carney thinks we should bomb Iran before we negotiate.. As if one held up another at gunpoint, asked for his money, shot him then took it anyway.

We remain wary of the Iranian regime.

Apparently John Carney isn’t.  He must expect them to be nuked out of existence any day now.

We believe that robust diplomacy remains our best possible strategic option, and we commend you and your designees for the developments in Geneva. Should negotiations fail or falter, nothing precludes a change in strategy. But we must not imperil the possibility of a diplomatic success before we even have a chance to pursue it.

John Carney, like those in the despicable other party, think diplomacy is overrated and that only force can be the method  used.  That vision killed Americans in Iraq.  It is killing Americans in  Afghanistan.  It is a dumb vision, and every knowledgeable person has denounce that war-mongering posture with Iran.  That posture has only one motive behind it:  to force Israel to independently bomb Iran and then let America protect Israel from retaliation.

John Carney’s  not signing moves him over to the Republican plan which prefers to  antagonize Iran instead of negotiate with it.  Such an idea for lack of better words,  is just stupid.  Stupid as would be Japan’s  thinking it should torpedo the battleship Missouri as it steams into Tokyo for the signing of the end of hostilities… It is just plain stupid and John Carney apparently fell for it.  If he falls for this, what else will he fall for?

Delaware needs someone who is not stupid, representing us in Washington….
