Please take the time to actual read the Resolution, if war will break out in the future between The West and Russia this was the declaration...this is absolutely nuts to come up with a Resolution based on lies at this stage...if war breaks out, you will remember this as being the culprit (but don`t forget, this is already staging Cold War 2)...

“Green Light” to War on Russia, Legislation in US Congress: Say No To War with Russia under H. Res. 758 “Russian Aggression”

Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich



Tomorrow the US House will debate and vote on H. Res. 758 which is tantamount to a ‘Declaration of Cold War’ against Russia, reciting a host of grievances, old and new, against Russia which represent complaints that Russia could well make against the US, given our nation’s most recent military actions: Violating territorial integrity, violations of international law, violations of nuclear arms agreements.

Congress’ solution? Restart the Cold War!

The resolution demands Russia to be isolated and for “the President, in consultation with Congress, to conduct a review of the force posture, readiness and responsibilities of United States Armed Forces and the forces of other members of NATO to determine if the contributions and actions of each are sufficient to meet the obligations of collective self-defense [my emphasis] under Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty, and to specify the measures needed to remedy any deficiencies…” In other words, ‘let’s get ready for war with Russia.’

This is exactly the type of sabre rattling which led to the initiation and escalation of the Cold War. It is time we demanded that the US employ diplomacy, not more military expenditures, in the quest for international order.

It is time the US stepped out of this expensive dialectic of conflict and seek to rebuild diplomatic relations with Russia and set aside the risky adventurism in the name of NATO.

If you agree, please contact your congressperson today, 202-224-3121, and ask them to vote against H. Res. 758.

Can you corroborate this with a better source than globalresearch?

And where in that link does it say anything about green lighting a war, because the only ones saying that is globalresearch, which has proven it's ability to not tell the truth during this whole Ukraine crisis.

From the bill itself




Calls upon the Russian Federation to seek a mutually beneficial relationship with the United States based on respect for the independence and sovereignty of all countries.


HAHAHA

Does America actualy think people do not see the hypocrisy?, that is some pretty twisted and very scary propaganda to be honest.

link the bill

H.Res.758 - Strongly condemning the actions of the Russian Federation, under President Vladimir Putin, which has carried out a policy of aggression against neighboring countries aimed at political and economic domination.

Pretty lulzy

There's some selective quoting going on here. There's a lot more to the bill then just what the OP has stated, here's the full description:




Shown Here:
Introduced in House (11/18/2014)

Supports the efforts by President Poroshenko and the people of Ukraine to establish a lasting peace for Ukraine that includes:

full withdrawal of Russian forces from its territory,
full control of its international borders,
disarming of separatist and paramilitary forces in eastern Ukraine,
adoption of policies to reduce the Russian Federation's ability to use energy exports and trade barriers as weapons to apply economic and political pressure, and
an end to interference by the Russian Federation in Ukraine's internal affairs.

Affirms the right of Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, and all countries to exercise their sovereign rights within their internationally recognized borders.

Condemns the continuing political, economic, and military aggression by the Russian Federation against Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova and the continuing violation of their sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity.

States that the military intervention by the Russian Federation in Ukraine:

is in breach of its obligations under the United Nations Charter and the 1994 Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances, and
poses a threat to international peace.

Calls on the Russian Federation to:

reverse its illegal annexation of the Crimean peninsula, end its support of the separatist forces in Crimea, and remove its military forces from that region (other than those operating in strict accordance with its 1997 agreement on the Status and Conditions of the Black Sea Fleet Stationing on the Territory of Ukraine);
remove its military forces from Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova, and end its political, military, and economic support of separatist forces; and
end violations of the September 2014 cease fire.

Calls on the President to provide the government of Ukraine with necessary defense articles, services, and intelligence in order to defend its territory and sovereignty.

Calls on North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) allies and U.S. partners to suspend military cooperation with Russia.

Calls on the President to cooperate with U.S. allies to:

(1) refuse to recognize the Russian Federation's illegal annexation of Crimea; and
(2) impose visa bans, asset freezes, and sanctions on the Russian Federation and its leadership to compel it to end its violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Urges the President, in consultation with Congress, to review the Treaty readiness of U.S. and NATO armed forces.

Urges the President to hold the Russian Federation accountable for violations of its obligations under the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

Calls on the President and the Department of State to develop a strategy to produce or otherwise procure and distribute news and information in the Russian language to countries with significant Russian-speaking populations.

Calls upon the Russian Federation to seek a mutually beneficial relationship with the United States based on respect for the independence and sovereignty of all countries.

Then everyone's a loser and we all die.

Russia has the capability to blow half the world away, whilst the U.S has the capability of blowing the whole world away.

Neither side are the good guy, but Putin is an egotistical lunatic, who likes to play the 'Brinkmanship' game. He has made no secret of his intention to bring back the days of the USSR and actions of late has supported this.

I also find it rather unsettling that the chap who sponsored this Bill was Adam Kinzinger who is a serving Major in the United States Air Force. Sure thats a total coincidence of course.

Those who ignore history, are doomed to repeat it.

Cuban Missile Crisis

Why, on God's green Earth, would anyone even discuss war with Russia?

Wait, I have an idea, we can all play Russian Roulette but to make it interesting, we will use a glock instead of a revolver.
What a fantastic idea.

Actually...

"Users can share, distribute, copy, and transmit the work Users find on TAN websites provided Users provide proper attribution that includes the name of the Website User, the name of the Website, and a link to the content thread."

So yes, you can. As long as you source it properly. But that wouldn't allow you to selectively quote it to support your directive, so I understand why you chose not to.

And no it's not the full resolution, it's the full description, as I had said.

At least next time The West can give proof about MH17 perpetrator by pointing out towards this Resolution instead of social media...



Whereas,
Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, a civilian airliner, was destroyed by a Russian-made missile provided by the Russian Federation to separatist forces in eastern Ukraine, resulting in the loss of 298 innocent lives;

The US shouldn't complain when Russia's could choose the all nuclear option when their economy does collapse (again) in which the 1st time they took it well and started over, this time could be another story. So I do think it's a possibility since Russia sees the US as its great enemy (again) it could choose the option; going all nuclear on US soil (without a warning).
Russia can not win in any other way, then going all nuclear unsuspected.

This is why the west should go easy, and seek diplomatic ways for ways to solve this instead of an economical war and putting them in a corner, where there only will be much more uncertainty for the future.

No, and the latest is, from the 47$ million backed private investigator on the case, the "official story" stinks from a lot of sides. Malaysia is now official part from the investigation. Technical analysis is done somewhere half `15, but the end report will not come before `16.

Jesus, dont even want to know what their gonna pull by 2016, though itll have to be something pretty spectacular to help us forget all about that airliner. Guess the damage was done though most people probably accept It was Russia despite no evidence. Sad.

It was Obama and the west that were drawing red lines all over the ME while demanding leaders of other countries step down . When they didn't the west launched wars weather overtly or covertly . The US has to where the guilt of dropping nuclear bombs on civilian populations . I think actions have spoken very loud to the rest of the world . a reply to: Cobaltic1978

It's not nuts, being a cold war vet myself, it was the excellent opportunity for the U.S. to fully occupy Europe with bases, Pershing missiles and other nice and lethal things that Russia was unable to equal to scare us enough, the problem now though would be if they had more influence on South America to beef up it's presence there, to me having missiles in Cuba was bad but nothing equaled Pershing back then!

I missed the days being stationed in Germany, well at least if this does happen, that would be the tour of duty to have if it's just another cold war and nothing more..

This is more aimed at getting Congress and Obama to get our military back in shape to fight a big war like we were able to do in 1986 before we gave up our nukes and most of our Army to budget cuts. Our Nuclear forces are in sad shape and it is so bad we are sitting ducks from a Russian first strike, their subs would destroy our land based missiles and bombers before they could get in the air. Especially since Obama could not drop his golf clubs fast enough to give the order.

We have to get our mobile MX missile program going again along with the Pershing intermediate range nukes, get our bomber fleet back in Cold war stances so they are not caught on the Ground. Having all our B-1 and B-2 bombers loaded with nukes is a dam good idea as they are probably the only ones that will be able to fly deep into Russia's defenses anyway. 50 B-52s should be loaded with their nuclear cruise missiles instead of them rotting away in bunkers and they need to fly to the old fail safe points because they are vital to kick down the doors into Russia.

If we don't scare Putin he will never come back to the table again hat in hand like Gorbachev did. A quick ramp up will most definitely do the trick.
