New Iran sanctions will lead to war, White House warns

Administration ups efforts to prevent Congress from passing new penalties against Tehran that could put kibosh on nuclear deal

The Obama administration Tuesday stepped up lobbying against congressional action for new sanctions on Iran, with the White House warning such a move would lead to war.

“The American people justifiably and understandably prefer a peaceful solution that prevents Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, and this agreement, if it’s achieved, has the potential to do that,” White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters. “The alternative is military action.”

Earlier in the day State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said John Kerry would use a closed door briefing with the Senate Banking Committee Wednesday to warn that passing new sanctions would be a “mistake.”

The intensified effort to head off any new penalties against Iran come days after a meeting between Tehran and six world powers — the US, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany — failed to produce a deal that would see eased sanctions in return for a promise to curb nuclear activity. Another meeting is scheduled for next week.

US President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron spoke by phone Tuesday to discuss the Iran talks and affirm their support for continuing the diplomatic track.

Carney told reporters that Americans did not want a “march to war,” which is what new sanctions would bring, indicating that lawmakers could pay politically if diplomacy with Iran failed.

Fresh from the nuclear talks, Kerry will defend the administration stance during a meeting with lawmakers Wednesday, where he will face a tough crowd.

Senator Mark Kirk (R-Illinois) said Tuesday that the administration is boxing Americans into a lose-lose situation.

“The American people should not be forced to choose between military action and a bad deal that accepts a nuclear Iran,”

Odd, that didn’t seem to stop Baraq when he was talking about Syria.

I'd rather fight a war than die in bed from another Islamic sneak attack.

Shouldn’t the administration be quietly using this as a bargaining chip instead of complaining about it?

Wouldn’t a war give Obama more chances to brag about his ability to kill?

Iran has attacked America in the past,
... but like al Qaeda,
OBAMA IS IN LOVE WITH THEM
even as the Tyrant shows his daily, weekly hate
against the American people, their Constitution,
and their (previous) allies.

Kerry, the spermatazoa, ought to know a mistake when he sees one. Remember when he got caught keeping his yatchet out of state to avoid taxes-—the list goes oooooonnnn——

Now if only he could learn the words, "Peace for our time"...

“The American people should not be forced to choose between military action and a bad deal that accepts a nuclear Iran"...

Very well stated.

Iran has a military.

That has no gasoline products to run on if imports are cut off.

A second revolution would occur in Iran if it ever went to war, the Mullahs couldn’t handle that. They would be hanging from every lamp post in Teheran, if I can believe everything my Iranian friends tell me.

Hussein is pro Iran and anti Israel. He declared war on the American people the moment he got in office!
