HR 1553 Authorizing 'Use of Force' Against Iran is Based on Pure Propaganda
America has not officially declared war on a nation since World War II. Yet we are now entangled in endless wars with no feasible goals, except sustained military profits and resource grabs
Instead, Congress votes to "authorize the use of force" just in case we may need it, which strategically limits the public debate. Although many believe that the stiff Iran sanctions detailed in HR 2194
, the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act was an Act of War
, the Republican proposed HR 1553 is the actual authorization of the "use of military force" backing Israel's right to "use any means necessary" to protect itself from Iran, including preemptive strikes.
: Expressing support for the State of Israelís right to defend Israeli sovereignty, to protect the lives and safety of the Israeli people, and to use all means necessary to confront and eliminate nuclear threats posed by the Islamic Republic of Iran
, including the use of military force
if no other peaceful solution can be found within reasonable time to protect against such an immediate and existential threat to the State of Israel.
Expressing support for the State of Israelís right to defend Israeli sovereignty......
This entire resolution is loaded with war mongering propaganda reported in the New York Times
and others -- not based on actions, or even concrete intelligence gathering. They are basing this legislation (declaration of war) on mistranslated statements that Ahmadinejad made in speeches.
Based on this reasoning, it seems that Iran and North Korea are justified to use force against America because George W. Bush threatened and labeled them the "axis of evil." If the American people fall for this once again, perhaps we deserve the ramifications of World War III.
