Help Rand Paul Call the Question on War with Iran

Sen. Rand Paul introducing his amendment to S. 2101.

Before we have any military conflict with Iran, the Senate and the House should have at least one debate and vote on it. That’s what the Constitution and the law require; that’s what the public interest requires. And it would be better to start that debate now, when there is still a chance of rational discussion, than in the wake of some Gulf of Tonkin incident, when cable news and talk radio could steamroll Congress.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has called the question, blocking unanimous approval of a new Iran sanctions bill to force consideration of an amendment affirming that nothing in the bill would authorize the use of military force, and that military force would require explicit Congressional authorization.

Urge your Senators and Representative to support amending any pending Iran sanctions legislation to affirm that it does not authorize the use of military force and that any use of military force must be explicitly authorized by Congress.

Threatening the world with global war, Nuclear Holocaust, based on Iran's legal NPT program, like many other states, and  then imposing sanctions on Iran for WHAT THE FASCIST STATE OF ISRAEL/AMERIKA HAS .....actual nuclear weapons IS HYPOCRITICAL, INSANE.      THESE NAZIS IN CONGRESS must be kicked out, in fact we are way beyond the failure of all failed class states, THE GLOBAL MOVEMENT FOR JUSTICE, must confront all religious, secular class politicians, class parties and kick out ALL CLASS POLITICIANS, for social , green parties to save the world from these FASCIST THUGS.    Class politicians who already are sociopaths, betraying social majorities have become psychopaths, war mongering idiots and dangerous elites.

The three sponsors of Western Fascist laws are JOHN McCAIN, LINDSAY GRAHAM, AND JOSEPH LIEBERMAN, THREE FASCIST AMIGOS:



US Neo-Conservatives Assail Possible Compromise on Iran Talks


http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2012/05/24


excerpt:


"We are very far from that point," according to Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsay Graham and independent Democrat Joseph Lieberman, the so-called "Three Amigos", who often travel overseas together and have long argued that U.S. military action will likely be the only way to prevent Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons....


In the run-up to the Baghdad meeting, Iranian officials suggested that they were prepared to make a number of concessions – including suspending their 20-percent enrichment programme and possibly transferring their stockpile of 20-percent enriched uranium out of the country, and ratifying the IAEA's Additional Protocol that would permit the agency's officials to conduct much more intrusive inspections, as well as clearing up pending questions about its past activities - depending on what was offered by the other side.


After the Istanbul meeting, Western officials suggested there could be some easing of economic sanctions against Iran – in particular, delaying an end-of-June deadline set by the European Union (EU) for a boycott of Iranian oil and Iran's central bank by its members - as part of an interim agreement that they said might also include the suspension of all operations at Iran's Fordow enrichment facility.


But during the past week, U.S. and Western diplomats appear to have taken a harder line. As of Wednesday, the only "carrots" reportedly on offer were swapping the 20-percent stockpile for fuel rods that can be used by Iran's Tehran Research Reactor (TRR), providing safety measures and upgrades for Tehran's other nuclear facilities, permitting it to buy spare parts for its aging commercial air fleet; and suspending a pending EU ban on insurance for ships carrying Iranian oil, a measure that would permit Asian refiners to continue buying oil from Iran.


Whether those will be sufficient to induce Iran to make the kinds of concessions the West hopes for – or whether the P5+1 is prepared to put more on the table Thursday – remains to be seen.


In any event, U.S. officials have also suggested that Washington recognises Iran's right to enrichment for civilian purposes and is prepared to accept Iran's continuing enrichment up to five percent as part of an interim or final accord..."


IRAN ALWAYS HAD THAT RIGHT THROUGH THE NPT TREATY, BUT THE FASCIST WEST  AND OBAMA LIED ABOUT THAT RIGHT, AND IMPOSED ILLEGAL SANCTIONS ON IRAN, WHEN IT SHOULD HAVE IMPOSED THEM ON ISRAEL FOR ITS ACTUAL NUCLEAR WEAPONS.!!!

As a result of Obama's FASCIST LIES, THREATS AND SANCTIONS against Iran, where it was conceeded that Iran had a right to its nuclear program, based on the NPT treaty, THE SANCTION NOW HAVE BECOME THE STUMBLING BLOCK TO PEACE, because the West STILL WANTS TO SANCTION IRAN, demanding only concessions from Iran, while failing to pull back from their NAZISM.   THE COLLAPSE OF THE PEACE PROCESS IS DUE TO WESTERN FASCISTS WHO ARE NOW ON THE ROAD TO WAR!!!


Hopes fade for progress at Iran nuclear talks in Baghdad


http://www.opednews.com/Quicklink/Hopes-fade-for-progress-at-in-General_News-120523-326.html


excerpt:


"Hope for swift progress on a nuclear deal with Tehran faded dramatically today, as world powers presented Iran with a list of stringent demands to curb its uranium enrichment but offered little sanctions relief in return. The Iranian reaction to the proposal indicates that a serious disconnect remains between Tehran and global powers about finding the right formula for curbing Iran's nuclear work, and locking in guarantees that it will not weaponize...."


SO NOW WE ARE CONFRONTED WITH THE FAILED HISTORY OF CLASS RULE, FROM PATRIARCHY TO LATE, FASCIST CAPITALISM, OUR IGNORANCE, ILLUSIONS THAT VOTING FOR CLASS POLITICIANS BRINGS SOCIAL DEMANDS TO FRUITION ARE COMPLETELY FALSE, HENCE THE NEED TO KICK OUT ALL CLASS POLITICIANS, TO AVOID A NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST, PSYCHOPATHIC WARMONGERERS, DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICAN FASCISTS.
