Why Did Republicans Write Iran? — ‘The Why’

Welcome to the newest edition of The Why.  “Why did Republicans write Iran?” Good question. Timely too. (Besides, it beats answering the question: “Why would I find some kind of hair in my new girlfriend’s peanut butter jar?” Seriously? Does she have a dog?)

In case you, like yours truly, don’t fully follow politics, 47 Republican senators recently wrote the leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Apparently, not everyone is up on their motivations. Hence our question: Why did Republicans write Iran?

According to a source at TIME the nearly four dozen senators wrote Iran in order “to bring to (their) attention two features of our Constitution” which the senators stated “limit how much President Obama can commit to in nuclear negotiations between Tehran, the U.S. and its five allies.”

The folks at TIME, however, feel that there are other reasons why the Republicans wrote Iran. Based on prior statements about the negotiations, they believe Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, “the letter’s primary author intended it not so much to edify the Iranians about the American system of government as to completely undermine the talks themselves.”

(See? This is why some of us are hard-pressed to even vote let alone follow politics on a daily basis. Still, let’s ride this out and see where it goes.)

Cotton reportedly “opposes the nuclear talks and believes they should stop immediately.” TIME previously reported that Cotton believes that “the President, in writing to Iran’s supreme leader over the last several years in pursuit of a diplomatic solution to the nuclear impasse, had behaved ‘like a love-struck teenager.’

It is further thought that Cotton and crew wrote Iran to make them aware of the limitations of any agreement President Obama strikes with them. The letter states:

“We will consider any agreement regarding your nuclear weapons program that is not approved by the Congress as nothing more than an executive agreement. The next president could revoke such an executive agreement with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time.”

Could it be a party thing? Could it be “sour grapes”? After all, Cotton and company have ideas of their own.

As TIME notes: “Cotton has thoughts on what an alternative policy should be.” Cotton has previously said the US should concentrate on “regime change in Iran.”

Cotton and crew closed their letter to Iran by stating that they “hope this letter enriches your knowledge of our constitutional system and promotes mutual understanding and clarity as nuclear negotiations progress.” Perhaps it’s as simple as they don’t want Iran to get the wrong idea about anything.
