HRes 1553 introduced : Green light for Israeli strike on Iran

Mind you, this is America's Congress!

"...The resolution is non-binding, but it is dazzling in its disregard for the possible negative consequences that would ensue for the hundreds of thousands of US military and diplomatic personnel currently serving in the Near East region. Even the Pentagon opposes any Israeli action against Iran, knowing that it would mean instant retaliation against US forces in Iraq and also in Afghanistan." Phil Giraldi

"Republicans in the US House of Representatives have introduced a measure that would green-light a possible Israeli bombing campaign against Iran.

Resolution 1553 provides explicit support for military strikes against Iran, stating that Congress backs Israel's use of 'all means necessary' against Iran, "including the use of military force," BBC Persian reported.

"Expressing support for the State of Israel’s 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."

Congress, along with the West Bank, the Golan Heights, and parts of South Lebanon is really occupied territory by Israel. Will the American public wake up?

The finest Congress AIPAC can buy.

It is NOT HR 1553, which is about some national U.S. law, but HRes 1553

Mixing them up doesn't help
