Default US Senate bill will set the stage for another Mideast war

A Blank Check For War on Iran

By Patrick J. Buchanan

January 14, 2014 "Information Clearing House
- As we approach the centennial of World War I, we will read much of the blunders that produced that tragedy of Western civilization.

Among them will be the "blank check" Kaiser Wilhelm II gave to Vienna after the assassination by a Serb terrorist of the Austrian Archduke Francis Ferdinand.

If you decide to punish the Serbs, said the Kaiser, we are with you.

After dithering for weeks, Austria shelled Belgrade. Within a week, Germany and Austria were at war with Russia, France and Great Britain.

Today the Senate is about to vote Israel a virtual blank check — for war on Iran. Reads Senate bill S.1881:

If Israel is "compelled to take military action in legitimate self-defense against Iran's nuclear weapons program," the United States "should stand with Israel and provide ... diplomatic, military and economic support to the Government of Israel in the defense of its territory, people and existence."

Inserted in that call for U.S. military action to support an Israeli strike on Iran, S.1881 says that, in doing so, we should follow our laws and constitutional procedures.

Nevertheless, this bill virtually hands over the decision on war to Bibi Netanyahu who is on record saying: "This is 1938. Iran is Germany."

Is this the man we want deciding whether America fights her fifth war in a generation in the Mideast?

for the rest

I figured gaffe would be dancing in the streets with Sharon's death.

His glee didn't last long. Back to his usual Israel-hating misanthropic-generally doomster self.

W*gs obviously supports the Senate bill which would effectively hand over control of US foreign policy to a lunatic -- Israeli PM Netanyahu.

Who cares!? The bill is dead in the water. Even if it were able to pass the senate,it would still get vetoed by Obama.
This bill is going nowhere,it's almost as useful as the 40+ repeal Obamacare votes the house did.
You got your panties in a wad over nothing.

Dare I say how you came up with your use of the word "obviously"?

Calling you a ninny, doomster, neo-Nazi, Jew-hater, vampire, scumbag, a-hole, dickhead, ****-fer-brains, ****wad, etc., etc. does not mean I support 100% everything you oppose 100%.

Dork.

Over nothing?

The fact that the Zionist lobby has Congress in its pocket is far from nothing.

This should tell you how dysfunctional our government has become.

The war lobby works 24 X 7 -- and will eventually find a way to drag us into another one.
