Rand Paul stands alone against Senate’s ‘preemptive war’ resolution for IranRT.Com ^ | September 22, 2012 19:52Posted on 9/6/2014, 1:46:01 PM by SoCon

Pubbies a de-facto declaration of war.The measure, which was introduced several months ago by Senators Lindsey Graham, Bob Casey and Joe Lieberman, supports continuing to pressure Iran to suspend its uranium enrichment program.

The resolution advocates using methods other than containment to stop Iran, including exerting economic and diplomatic pressure. Senate Joint Resolution 41 “rejects any United States policy that would rely on efforts to contain a nuclear weapons-capable Iran.” Senators expressed their fears regarding Iran’s nuclear capabilities.“We know that Iran would create access for terrorists – access for them – to these nuclear weapons, making the Middle East a nuclear tinbox,”

Sen. Richard Blumenthal said before the Senate. “We cannot trust this regime. We know that fact beyond any potential doubt.”The bill states that it should not be misinterpreted as an endorsement for military force or war.

But as the only senator to vote against the resolution, Paul argued that the resolution would eventually lead to war with Iran.“A vote for this resolution is a vote for the concept of preemptive war,”

Paul said before the Senate.Passage of the resolution comes at a time when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has been pressuring the US for an answer as to what would prompt a US-led military strike against Iran.

New York Times: Demonizing Sgt. Bergdah

lThe New York Times via the Salt Lake Tribune ^ | Friday, June 6, 2014 | EditorialPosted on 6/7/2014, 9:03:45 AM by kristinnFour months ago, Sen. John McCain said he would support the exchange of five hard-core Taliban leaders for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.”I would support ways of bringing him home,” he told CNN, “and if exchange was one of them I think that would be something I think we should seriously consider.

“But the instant the Obama administration actually made that trade, McCain, as he has so often in the past…SNIPThough we criticized the administration for ignoring the law in not informing Congress of the transfer of the Taliban detainees 30 days in advance, leave it to Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and other hyperventilators to claim that continued release of prisoners from Guantánamo without prior notice is now considered an impeachable offense, a ludicrous leap.SNIPThis duck-and-cover response is the result of the outrageous demonization of Bergdahl in the absence of actual facts. Republican operatives have arranged for soldiers in his unit to tell reporters that he was a deserter who cost the lives of several soldiers searching for him.

In fact, a review of casualty reports by Charlie Savage and Andrew Lehren of The New York Times showed there is no clear link between any military deaths and the search.SNIPAnd a classified military report shows that Bergdahl had walked away from assigned areas at least twice before and had returned, according to a report in The New York Times on Thursday.

Threatened Republican Impeachment of Obama a Useless Joke…

Given that five violent Taliban terrorists in the Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl tradeoff are now on the loose, being in Qatar is on the loose, it’s got to be the biggest joke of all time that Republican lawmakers would call for President Barack Obama’s impeachment—”if he released more prisoners from Guantanamo Bay”.

What is now called the Tea Party began in 2007 as a loosely-organized yet highly-motivated grassroots support effort for Congressman Ron Paul‘s bid for the White House. Since those early days, a lot has happened to the Tea Party.
