House OK's Possible Israeli Raid on Iran
26-Jul-2010 (2 comments)

Republicans in the US House of Representatives introduced a measure that would green-light a possible Israeli bombing campaign against Iran, Press TV said in a report.

Resolution 1553 provides explicit support for military strikes against Iran, stating that Congress backs Israel's use of 'all means necessary' against Iran, "including the use of military force."

The introduction of the measure coincides with a pattern of renewed calls for military strikes that have escalated since President Obama signed Congressional Iran sanctions into law.

Neoconservatives who were instrumental in orchestrating the Iraq War, such as Bill Kristol and Reuel Marc Gerecht, have led the stepped up calls for military action.

Hawkish former Bush Administration official John Bolton recently laid out the game plan to prod Israel into attacking Iran, arguing that outsiders can 'create broad support' for a strike by framing it as an issue of Israel's right to self-defense.

... that could mutilate limbs. War is still the worst case scenario, especially when practiced by Israel. Let's hope that Iranians can topple these bastards before Israeli governments feels like doing it for us.

Cyrus the great liberated the Jews from captivity in Babylon and guarded their treasures including the Ark of the Covenant, before Darius relesed them back to Zerubabbel's care.  Now it is Israel's chance to repay that favor and help liberate Iran from the clutch of the most notorious and muderous regime the civilized world has known since the time of the Pharoahs.
