US Senator: Senate Resolution against Iran Amounts to Preemptive War TEHRAN (FNA) 23 Sept 12, The US Senate voted 90-1 early Saturday on a non-binding resolution to impede Iran’s advancement in nuclear technology. Voting against the resolution was Sen. Rand Paul, arguing that the bill was a de-facto declaration of war.

The measure, which was introduced several months ago by Senators
Lindsey Graham, Bob Casey and Joe Lieberman, supports continuing to
pressure Iran to suspend its uranium enrichment program. The
resolution advocates using methods other than containment to stop
Iran, including exerting economic and diplomatic pressure.

The Senate Joint Resolution 41 states that it should not be
misinterpreted as an endorsement for military force or war. But as the
only senator to vote against the resolution, Paul argued that the
resolution would eventually lead to war with Iran.

“A vote for this resolution is a vote for the concept of preemptive
war,” Paul said before the Senate, RT reported.

Passage of the resolution comes at a time when Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu, has been pressuring the US for a US-led military
strike against Iran.
