Washington - California Senator Barbara Boxer and Oregon Senator Ron Wyden are both original co-sponsors of the AIPAc promoted "Back Door to Iran War" bill.



The bill sponsored by Senator Lindsey Graham commits the US to support Israel militarily and diplomatically should Israel attack Iran. As Robert Naiman points out in his Huffington Post article, this is quite different from present US policy which is to distance itself from any Israeli attack. This bill is also being advanced just as there are ongoing talks with Iran over its nuclear program.


The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) reputed to be one of the most powerful lobbying groups in Washington is promoting this bill. When it comes to supporting Israel there is bipartisanship among Senators of quite varied views. Republican Lindsey Graham is an unabashed supporter of Israel who worked hard to stop Chuck Hagel from being appointed as US Minister of Defense because of his criticism of Israel.

So are we going to war with Syria or Iran first?

  They're one and the same aren't they?   At least that's what John Kerry is trying to insinuate!

This is so stupid...  The people of this country deserve every bad thing that's coming our way.   At some point, the rest of the world is going to decide that we need a regime change of our own.  Frankly, there won't be much difference in the puppet government they set up than with what we have right now.

Didn't Iran just announce they will stand with Syria?  Sounds like typical Iran chest thumping, but none the less

Syria is a ploy for Iran.

Those Persians have been a pain in the ass since '79, running around fucking up the place.

I can't wait to see their ass get clobbered.

The bill is S.RES.65 if anyone wants to read it.  The questionable language is at the end, in section (8).

Edit: According to Popvox it passed on May 22 this year.

Probably because of this:

"Nothing in this resolution shall be construed as an authorization for the use of force or a declaration of war."


What? Libertarians don't support sanctions against a radical islamic state theocracy? Yet they have the nerve of calling American Christians ...... the American taliban.
