The Virtual Iran War Resolution

This is one of those times that I realize how deficient the English language is in profanity.  Congressmen deserve far worse hammering than the vernacular allows.

Congress may vote for  a resolution this week that would be a de facto declaration of war on Iran.  Iran poses no peril to the U.S. mainland.  But since the U.S. military is on a winning streak these days, Congress seemingly wants to give the Bush administration the chance to notch another triumph before it leaves office.

Ron Paul has an excellent summary of this absurdity and its peril here.

On a radio show last week, Paul commented:  “I hear members of Congress saying, ‘If we could only them [Iran].”

Apparently, as long as nuking Iran resulted in more campaign contributions to congressmen, it would not count as genocide.

People should raise hell on this issue.   And if your congressional representative or senator votes for the pro-war resolution…. has great coverage of this and many other issues.

    I dunno about the deficiency – once you call somebody a “son of a politician,” is there really anything else you could possibly add? 😀

    We’ll lose Iranian oil exports too.

    The shrub is a “son of a politician”

    I’m not sure which is worse, Congress abdicating its responsibility to declare war or passing an idiotic resolution that provides the president cart blanch authority to carry out preemptive military attacks against a non threatening nation obeying international treaties.

    Since we are hell-bent to go to Hell, let’s just do it. The sooner we get our skulls crushed against the wall, the sooner the Humanity (to which the U.S. is totally irrelevant), will be relieved.
    Americans are too stupid to predict the consequences before they happen. Just look at our sorry C-in-C, he still can’t come out of his torpor, after so many of his “missions accomplished”.
    Fools have to learn the hard way.
