Posted on 10/16/2011 3:14:45 PM PDT by SkyPilot
A leading Democrat warned Sunday that United States and Iran are on a "collision course" as Tehran steps up its nuclear program and escalates hostilities with its alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi envoy to Washington. But Dianne Feinstein, the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said this was not the time for war with Iran, but for stronger international sanctions to change its behavior.
"Iran is escalating, I believe, its nuclear development. Iran is increasingly hostile," she said in an interview with Fox News Sunday. "It's a very dangerous situation."
"If you project out a number of years, we are on a collision course. If we want to avoid it, we have to take action to avoid it," she said.
Feinstein said that, like others, she was initially skeptical of the alleged plot by Iran's Quds Force to hire members of a Mexican drug cartel to kill Saudi Ambassador to Washington, Adel al-Jubeir, with a bomb in a restaurant.
But after being briefed on the evidence, she concluded it was a "dead bang" case, with compelling signals intelligence and a confession by the Iranian-American used car dealer who was arrested in the plot September 29.
She said there was evidence that Qassem Soleimani, the head of the Quds Force, knew about the plot. Soleimani is believed to report to Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, but Feinstein said there was no evidence Khamenei knew about the plot.

Slash the Defense Budget to hell to you can give away "entilement" checks to 50% of the population, or launch our 4th war so you can distract from the Obama disaster?
Awaiting martial law and end of elections.
Blah, blah, blah, blah, gibble, gibble, blah, blah, ........
I would bring almost all of our troops home(aiding the Muslim Underground in taking over countries is not intelligent) and I WOULD bomb the Iranian reactors tomorrow!
Feinstein is scum.
Have these people forgotten that we have golden boy at the helm to talk the world into a state of peace?
Take it easy, 0bama will save the planet.
Why, he'll have "Imadinnerjacket" talking perpetual peace with a snap of his fingers.
Geesh, how quickly some of us have forgotten 0bama's promises of '08.
Cant be, all we have to do is negotiate or so they said. Sorry but we do not need another war just ask the occupy wall street people.
Lots of wars.
Iraq (ending this year)
6. Uganda/Sudan (latest one)
7. ? Iran ?
Our Peace Prize winner is exceptional at killing the little brown people wherever they may be...
The war is lost, the troops are exhausted...
I think between the two of us we have a more complete list...
Looks like its more than either of us thought.
I forgot Djibouti (Camp Lemonier) and Pakistan/Waziristan.
Obozo's Iranian Buds and fellow rats like $inator Di$wine come to help Obozo with his crashing poll numbers with Wag the Dog III!
Below are some riviting scenes from 'Wag the Dog III'. Narrated by our Obozo with soundbites from the ayatollah Kameini and some hot headlines from the MSM Mediots.
Obozo, you Suck!
0bozo replies and demands severe accountability from his Iranian buds! Then, he orders Holder, and his mediot whores in the MSM to start "Wag the Dog III" 24/7!
I demand full accountabilility!"
The crack MSM mediots have learned the following about the dangerous wannabe assassin.
The really dangerous wannabe and nearly hired assassin was an unemployed Mexican used car salesman.
If I was a thug in Iran, I’d be laughing my ass off.
Because of the libs in our government, we can’t win the War on Terror - we can’t even keep our schools safe.
And the most worthless amongst us are marching around on Wall Street with their hands out.
There is a reason why the tyrants of the world are on the march....
But Dianne Feinstein, the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said this was not the time for war with Iran, but for stronger international sanctions to change its behavior.
She always can sacrifice the lives of thousands of low life Christian untermenschen hillbillys in defense of her personal patriotic duty and still starve the military to buy votes.
It is what the hundreds of “Feinsteins” who control our goverment do.
Didn't you know, that's the overseas contingency operation since March 2009.
Because of the libs in our government, we cant win the
War on Terror
I’m sure she loves and respects you.
