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….
