House Debate on Iran Resolution

     The only decent people have been Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich.  Ron Paul notes that the actual text of the legislation encourages China and Russia to invade Iran if _any_ report (including in the daily paper) comes out on Iran. 

     Ignorant war mongers include: Tom Lantos (D-CA), Steny Hoyer (D-TX), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL, who recently claimed that America is the only non-corrupt country in the world) and a group of Republicans whose names aren't worth mentioning.

     Tom Lantos is the Ranking Member of the House International Relations Committee.  If the Democrats win the US House, the down side is that he will be the new Chair.

UPDATE: The vote result was 404-4, with 4 abstentions, may the far left and the far right unite!
