Yet again the Israel firsters are at it.

Senate resolution would rule out containing nuclear Iran

A bipartisan group of senators--Bob Casey (D-Penn.), Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.)--are circulating a draft resolution that would rule out the United States adopting a strategy of containment should Iran acquire nuclear weapons.

The measure, called a "Sense of the Senate" resolution, is not technically binding. But it would put additional pressure on the administration to limit diplomatic efforts to resolve concerns about Iran's nuclear program, without recourse to another war.

Aka, the senate wants the US to ATTACK Iran.

Notably, one provision of the draft resolution seemingly rejects a negotiated agreement with Iran permitting any sort of nuclear enrichment, including for energy programs--a right Iran has insisted it should be permitted as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

That means if Iran has ANY nuclear energy program, which they can under the NPT, they should be bombed.

These people should be arrested and deported to Israel already.

When are we going to leave Iran the frack alone. I don't like/love them, but guess what, they have just as much right to nuclear sciences as all other signatories of the NPT, and even the non-signatories (North Korea anybody and Israel ring any bells).

Don't care how nuts they might be, they still have the same rights as us 'stable' countries that signed the same treaty.


Let the flames begin

Its not about religion per say or the Nuke. Its monetary position. Oil being traded in dollars is IMO the only thing holding the dollar up. Iran shunned the dollar and accepted gold for its oil. US monetary security completely depends on Iran being disciplined for gold trade and the world must know its $Dollars$ or else.

Yes Israel is part of it. Zionism is the crust of Capitalism and our US economy is built on it. The United States doesn't promote Democracy. That's the white lie. It promotes Capitalism and Consumption. Good little consumers that pay taxes and sport to gain more and more.Work more, eat more and better, play more, live better. All the while the money Vacuum is turned on and sucking dollars out of every wallet. Who in this economy is gaining dollars? Over the last 20 years who really gained dollars? As frugal as my father-in-law is, he has lost 3/4's of his pension power in the last 10 years. Notice I said pension POWER.

trust me when I figured out this little riddle it all made sense to me. Some will say "whats wrong with that?" FREEDOM is what is wrong with that. 99% feel the bondage every, I don't drum for the 99%ers

I just want to take this opportunity to point out: the Senate has a Democrat Majority.
For the Senate to pass a resolution means a fair number of Democrats must agree.

If they want to draft something, how about a declaration of war. Simple as that, But don't want their names attached to something binding

The recent attacks by Iran are just the beginning. Just a few days ago the Iranian leadership said that it had forces in position around the world to use in attacks against America.

Whether those forces around the world are used to attack American personel, Israeli personel, Iraqi personel, Libyian personel...etc. and attack on an ally of America can be considered an attack on America itself.

9.11.01 occured as a result of perfectly placed covert operations by Russian and Chinese operatives with the government that allowed our intelligence to fail and the terrorist to conduct their attacks.

You have to remember that the U.S.S.R. was brought down by America and given the very nature of ego's and revenge there would be elements within the former U.S.S.R. that would seek revenge.

Those former Cold War elements conspired with various groups of Middle Easterner that had been by CIA to fight the Russian during the Russian/Afghanistan War. The CIA trained groups had access to sensitive spots within the American government that the Cold War Russians knew they could exploit...if they gave the dissenting Afghanistan groups what they needed in the form of arms.

As a result the former CIA trained Afghanistan groups that had fought against the Russians but were now allies provided counter intelligence to our operatives telling them that everything was fine which drew our intelligence efforts into a false sense of security that allowed intel about the attack on 9.11.01 through to the CIA but because of the trust between formed between the CIA advisors and those they trained to fight Russia the intelligence was discounted as being false.....of which we know was in fact not false.

We cannot discount Iran's involvement in the attack on 9.11.01 nor can we occlude the fact that we as Americans must make a decision in whether to commit our troops to action against Iran or let Iran continue to build a worldwide threshold in placing agents to use in the manner that they have against Israel.

You may think that a few bombings here and there and a few hundred deaths there or here isn't a big deal. But the overall psychological affect does cause more people to be fearful about counter-attacking such a threat fearing that they may be the next to be attacked.

America needs to decide the next course of action in the War Against Terrorism. Do we let the Iranian Terrorists countinue to bolster their ranks where even a larger scale attack like 9.11.01 will happen where given the fact that Iran is continuing to develop nuclear weapons they will at the behest of Russia and China use those weapons in smaller delivery systems that will create the effect similiar to our daisy cutters and MOAB's along with releasing small amounts of radiological damage that will make an area unuseable for years where the people passing through the area will then become cancer ridden. Im not talking about the Hiroshima or Nagasaki type WMD's I'm talking about WMD's that will release just enough of the stuff to cause problems for many years.

America is an empire at war with forces who are determined to end the reign of Democracy and to impose upon the world the goal of Communism and Tyrannical Despotism.

There are only two forms of politics on planet Earth now the first being Democracy where each citizen within the democratic society has the personel freedom to make any choice that they feel is in their best interest where said choice is protected first by a Constitution and secondly the might of the military to protect those rights.

The second form of politics being that of Despotism, Communism or Tryannisism. Which ever form you call it it is the opposite of Democracy where the might of the military is used to crush the free will and free choice of the citizen so that those of the elite can be viewed as gods where they make the decision for each citizen where if the citizen rebukes said decision on what they are supposed to do based upon their own feelings they are either put in jail or killed.

So I ask you America and the rest of the free world which society do you want to live in and see the rest of the world live in? A democracy of choice or a choice of being told by a leader what your choice is with a bayonet backing that leader up?

Do not listen to those who say that if we commit to such an action that Americans will be conscripted to fight in such a war. They are agents of the very system of despotism that we are fighting and they would value nothing more than to drive a wedge between the forces coming together to end their tryanny.

America needs a war president that will listen to the cause of figthing back and is not scared to send in the troops knowing that some will not return. So write your Senators and Congressmen and tell them which political forum you wish to live in.

Because we are America and we make the policies and decisions that protect us and the rest of the world from such tyranny and despotism. If we cannot compel our elected leaders to the course of action that we as Americans deem worthy of cause then we should call for votes of no confidence in their leadership and remove them until we have the leaders in place that understand the goal that we are trying to spread...that goal is the spread of liberty and freedom of choice.
