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.
