Post #344 - One Damn Thing after Another

From NIAC Action Alert (9/20/12):

Stop Last Minute Senate Vote to Adopt Netanyahu's War Red Line

The Senate is poised to commit the U.S. to a red line for war demanded by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and opposed by the Obama Administration. 

A resolution by Senators Lindsay Graham (R-SC), Joe Lieberman (I-CT), and Bob Casey (D-PA) expresses support for Netanyahu’s red line for military action against Iran and may come up for a surprise vote TODAY.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told Foreign Policy Magazine, “Red lines are kind of political arguments that are used to try to put people in a corner."  But Netanyahu rebuked the Administration and implied if the U.S. does not commit to attacking Iran, Israel would.  The Senate is poised to side with Netanyahu.  

We stopped this redline in the Senate earlier this year.  But with Netanyahu ratcheting up his pressure on the U.S. again, the Senate looks like it may fold.  Please call your Senators to tell them you oppose the Iran redline resolution.  

Call 1-855-68 NO WAR (1-855-686-6927) to be directed to your Senators offices and tell them:

I am calling to ask that the Senator oppose S. J. Res. 41, which sets dangerous red lines for war with Iran.  This measure could be headed to the Senate floor today and I strongly urge the Senator to oppose it and to support a peaceful, diplomatic resolution to the standoff with Iran, not another war of choice.
