While America was in an uproar over Bush's plan to sell Eastern seaboard ports to UAE, Congress voted 404 to 4 in favor of condemning the government of Iran for violating it's international nuclear non-proliferation obligations and expressing support for efforts to report Iran to the UN Security Council. Of course, Iran has never been in violation of the NPT, since building a nuclear power plant is perfectly legal. And any hippie worth their weight in Crosby Stlls and Nash records knows that while nuclear power is not safe, it certainly isn't worth dropping nuclear weapons on a country over.
Ron Paul, the lone Republican dissenter, laid out a good argument against the measure. One, we have put Iran in th impossible position of proving a negative. Since it can't prove it's not meeting it's obligations under the NPT, this gives the George W (W stands for warmonger)Bush administration the excuse it needs to stop Iran from creating it's oil exchange dealing exclusively in euros. Clause four of this legislation calls for Russia and China, the two Security Council members likely to vote against this resolution, to take action in any response to iran's noncompliance. Even if that report is akin to the forged Niger yellow cake documents used by Bush to justify it's invasion of Iraq.
So while the Bush administration distracts the American people with a deal that even he didn't know about ( adeal that even has longer time Bush sycophant Cal Thomas outraged)until it was brought to his attention, the US Congress took one step closer to another war we can not win. Making three so far in this present administration.
