Congressman To Introduce Resolution Supporting Israeli Strike On Iran
NIAC ^ | March 23, 2010

Posted on 03/23/2010 8:46:22 AM PDT by Fennie

Washington, DC - A draft resolution is circulating among members of the House of Representatives that endorses an Israeli military attack on Iran "if no other peaceful solution can be found within reasonable time."

The resolution, written by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and currently being circulated for cosponsors prior to its introduction, does not clarify what is meant by a "reasonable time."

I wonder if this is a symbolic measure considering Bibi is in town?

They need to introduce a resolution condemning Obama’s treatment of Israel, and reaffirming US support.

pfft. What is the value of our government supporting another country putting itself at risk?

Iran having nukes is bad for everyone. We should issue a statement that the United States will not abide a nuclear-armed Iran under any circumstances and will take any action necessary to see that it never happens.

And we should blockade Iran on the land, sea and air RIGHT NOW!!

No, it is a Resolution to put the Dums on the record as enemies of Israel.

Stalin once said: “Words have no relation to actions, otherwise, what kind of diplomacy is it? Words are one thing, actions another.
Good words are a concealment for bad deeds. Sincere diplomacy is no more possible than dry water or wooden iron.”

Does anyone really think that Israel really cares if our dimwitted Congress passes a resolution? Israel will defend herself regardless.....

I think the point is to get the anti-Israeli RATs to break cover. Since they’re all pumped up over their most recent triumph they may well do that.

Senate Repub’s should offer up this same resolution for a vote once they take up the health care reconciliation bill.

That would be Mike Pence and Jessie Jackson Jr., "Stop bullying Israel" and focus on Iran (letter from Mike Pence & Jesse Jackson Jr. to Obama)
