On March 10th we heard from two experts in the field of nuclear nonproliferation and global security; Joe Cirincione, President of Ploughshares Fund, and Andrew Semmel, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Nuclear Nonproliferation and current Head of AKS Consulting, about their views on the situation. Both have incredible experience with nuclear non-proliferation, the IAEA, and Iran's nuclear development. The call discussed background information on the International Atomic Energy Agency, Iran's nuclear history, what actually is going on right now in Iran, where Israel fits in, and how the U.S. can move forward in a smart, diplomatic, and non-aggressive way.

Our current and ongoing action is to first send an email to your Senators telling them you support smart talk not smart bombs when it comes to Iran! After you take action, your job as our grassroots leader is to spread the word! We've made it very easy for you to share this action with family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors via email, Facebook, and Twitter with just one simple click of a button. If you need assistance with any of these social networking sites download our toolkit to find out how you can create your own accounts and get lots of helpful tips! We need 50 emails in each state to get Senators offices to take notice, so please spread this message to anyone and everyone you know.
The world is watching - and it's up to the U.S. to ensure that talks not bombs are used. Please let your Senators know how you feel and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
