The drumbeat for war

Armchair Generals Lindsay Graham and John McCain have introduced a resolution in the Senate that reads very much like a proto-declaration of war. Items 6 and 7 say that Iran has no right to nuclear fuel development and that even if no weapons are created and  that the U.S. should not tolerate a policy that would allow containment. The whole resolution is here.Sounds like a run up to war.

Resolved, That the Senate–…

(6) rejects any United States policy that would rely on efforts to contain a nuclear weapons-capable Iran; and

(7) urges the President to reaffirm the unacceptability of an Iran with nuclear-weapons capability and oppose any policy that would rely on containment as an option in response to the Iranian nuclear threat.

Did I mention that Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak is in Washington to meet with officials, followed soon thereafter by PM Netanyahu who will meet with the president. And, oh yes….. AIPAC will begin its annual Washington policy meeting and lobbying efforts on March 4.  Any connections here, I wonder?

Nathan Guttman has a rundown at The Jewish Daily Forward.   The Economist weighs in: hawkish but realpolitik.

  1. The war drums against Iran are beating louder and louder. In the CBS South Carolina GOP debate, which was dubbed a foreign policy debate, almost every candidate came out and seemed to support going to war against Iran to prevent them from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Is war with Iran inevitable?
