32 Senators Formally Clear Way for War on Iran

My God:

A group of 32 senators from both parties unveiled a new Senate resolution Thursday that would establish the sense of the Congress that containing a nuclear Iran is not an option.

The resolution, which will be formally introduced later today, “strongly supports U.S. policy to prevent the Iranian government from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability and rejects any policy that would rely on efforts to ‘contain’ a nuclear weapons capable Iran,” and “urges the president to reaffirm the unacceptability of an Iran with nuclear-weapons capability  and oppose any policy that would rely on containment as an option in response to the Iranian nuclear threat.”

Lieberman emphasized that he doesn’t want to foreclose diplomatic options, but said that if Obama decided to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, he would have strong bipartisan support in Congress.


I hear the Israeli lobby and the military industrial complex speaking through these Senators.  Never mind what the American people want.  Just yesterday CNN released a poll showing that 82% of Americans think diplomacy or “no action” is the way to go:

Americans Favor Diplomacy Against Iran

CNN/ORC International poll released Wednesday indicates that only 17% of the public wants the U.S. to use force, with 60% saying diplomatic or economic action against Iran is the right response, and 22% saying no action should be taken at this time.
