In Reversal, Democrats Shelve Iran Resolution

E-mail Print PDF

Falling from shoo-in status to widely rejected legislation within the space of four months, a resolution that would have opened the door for a naval blockade on Iran was officially shelved at the end of September, after several of its cosponsors withdrew their support.

AIPAC framed the bill as a necessary escalation of tactics toward Iran. In a statement on the legislation, AIPAC announced, "Iran poses a growing threat to the United States and our allies as it continues rapidly advancing toward a nuclear weapons capability.


TVNL Comment: AIPAC is the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. This pro Israel lobby framed a resolution to enable an act of war against Iran by the US.  This resolution has been tabled, not defeated.
