Heightening Tensions for War on Iran


Odds favor war post-November.

by Stephen Lendman

A previous article discussed two House bills. On May 18, HR 4310 passed. It includes two hawkish anti-Iranian provisions: Sections 1221 and 1222. 

So does HR 568. It expressed the importance of preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons "capability." 

Every nation operating commercial nuclear reactors has it. On March 17, the bill passed. Both measures advance the ball closer to war.

Companion Senate bills are easily expected to pass.

On February 16, S. Res. 380: A resolution to express the sense of the Senate regarding the importance of preventing the Government of Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability was introduced.

No further action was taken. It's expected to pass once floor consideration begins.

Its official summary states:

"Affirms that it is a vital national interest of the United States to prevent the Islamic Republic of Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability and warns that time is limited to prevent that from happening.

Urges increasing economic and diplomatic pressure on Iran to secure an agreement that includes:

(1) suspension of all uranium enrichment-related and reprocessing activities, 

(2) complete cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regarding Iran's nuclear activities, and 

(3) a permanent agreement that verifiably assures that Iran's nuclear program is entirely peaceful.
