Ok everyone, if this bill passes and gets signed by GWB we will be at war with Iran.

Fill up your gas tank and stock up the pantry because the shiiet will hit the fan.

Iran claims to have sleeper cells in our country, Hezboullah says it's ready to strike in the US.

This summer could be really interesting

America’s powerful pro-Israel lobby pressures the US Congress .

A US House of Representatives Resolution effectively requiring a naval blockade on Iran seems fast tracked for passage, gaining co-sponsors at a remarkable speed, but experts say the measures called for in the resolutions amount to an act of war.

H.CON.RES 362 calls on the president to stop all shipments of refined petroleum products from reaching Iran. It also "demands" that the President impose "stringent inspection requirements on all persons, vehicles, ships, planes, trains and cargo entering or departing Iran."

Analysts say that this would require a US naval blockade in the Strait of Hormuz.

Since its introduction three weeks ago, the resolution has attracted 146 cosponsors. Forty-three members added their names to the bill in the past two days.

The excuse; to cause an action by Iran; to justify destroying their military, as well as their "Nuclear" programs. (IMO)

Now, that said, it is a LONG way from becoming law, much less the reactions from:
Russia (and or the Russian Federation)
China (many a oil/gas contracts)
Pakistan (this one really worries me) (any action by them an excuse for India to take action on them)????
N.Korea (any excuse for little kimmy to act badly)
Saudi Arabia???

How about:
NATO (kind of a repeat)

Interesting timing. Congress just passed the war funding bill (to the tune of $165B) and apparently Nancy Pelosi caved to AIPAC and removed a section of the bill that would require Congressional approval of any military action against Iran. As an aside, I'm surprised we need to have that provision in the bill at all. Isn't that a requirement? Oh yea, Iraq. Way to go Nancy.
