Senators Press Resolution To Green-Light Israeli Attack On Iran

A joint resolution set to be introduced by Sens. Lindsey Graham (SC) and Robert Menendez (NJ), a Republican and Democrat, respectively, declares U.S. support for an Israeli military strike against Iran's nuclear program. The resolution, which expresses the sense of the Congress, will be supported by the thousands of delegates to the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee annual conference that will stream through the Capitol this weekend. With prominent liberal Democrats already signing on, AIPAC's lobbying heft will likely propel a bill that, in Congressional sentiment at least, commits the U.S. to active support of a potential Israeli attack that experts think could have consequences as grave as further destabilization in the region, adverse global economic consequences, and even a hardening of Iranian resolve to get a weapon....

As Americans we must ask ourselves is this really in the best interest of the USA?


Why we must resist Netanyahu and the hawks' reckless push for war on Iran

Now, just as diplomacy is yielding results, has never been a better time to ignore the lobbying of Israel's prime minister for war

The officially stated positions of leading figures in both the US and Israeli military and intelligence establishments, as well as of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), are that Iran is not presently developing a nuclear weapons program and has not made a decision to pursue one in the future. Yet, Netanyahu and other prominent hawks on the issue have continued to claim that such a program is both imminent and threatening enough to require immediate military action, and that negotiations over the issue are inherently pointless or counterproductive.

It's just a resolution to be presented to Congress.

Many, many, many resolutions are drafted and do not make it through the subcommittee's, much less the whole of Congress.

I guess we'll see on this one.

Imo The US will not attack Iran even if they make a bomb that works. If Israel does let them and stay out of it, they have nukes.

Personally speaking, I would not be against a serious military strike against the concerned nuclear facilities within Iran.
Israel doesn't need US support for this. They are well capable of doing it on their own. And I think they should!

Just my opinion, though.

If NK wants to stay all alone in the world community just let them. Until they do something and until then gun head meet bullet. Attacking them would be as such 2nd amendment right needers say, you can pull my nuke from my cold dead haands.
