Greenlighting Iran. Neocons & H. Res. 1553: we want a new war and we mean to get it.

Written by Subject: WAR: About that War
The green light to Israel
H. Res. 1553, the resolution "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" comes at a nice time: just around when AIPAC has it's annual hoedown in DC, the capital city of Israel.
Finally something they can agree on
It's little more than the usual gratuitous war hawking with a little added push: Billy Kristol and the gang are totally on board. The latest drive for war comes with interesting bipartisan support for the Obama administration.

Oh hi Michelle Bachman! How's your "Tea Party Caucus" going? You sneaky little minx we just knew you were one of THEM.
I sure hope Rand Paul reads this list and thinks very carefully about the company he keeps.
