LETTER: President right to negotiate peace

To the Editor:

Well, it seems we have a deal with Iran and their efforts to develop a nuclear bomb. Which is good news if it holds up; a lot better than beating the war drums. It’s mostly due to the efforts of our president.

This is the third war some people have tried to get us involved in. Libya, Syria and now Iran, that could easily have escalated into a major Middle East war or maybe even a third world war. These were mostly avoided by the diplomatic efforts of our president. He received a lot of criticism from the Republicans for talking to these people, but by talking to these people and avoiding getting into these wars he has saved us billions of dollars and probably a lot of lives. If the Republicans hadn’t blocked his every effort to balance the budget, the recession would be a thing of the past and we could be enjoying a prosperous and peaceful living.
