time to act!!!

Kevin is sooo right .....listen up and grow a set Democrats!......these radical, reckless maniacs have to be stopped..... it's time to do the right thing because it's the right thing to do. whatever is done or not done, the outcome could be political suicide, so why not do the right thing?

DIAMOND ON IRAN....Leonard Weiss and Larry Diamond are members in good
standing of the mainstream liberal foreign policy community. They're about the
farthest thing imaginable from a pair of left-wing loonies, but
here's what they have to say today about Iran and the Bush administration:

When Bush signed the Iraq war resolution, he issued a statement challenging
the constitutionality of the War Powers Act, indicating that he could take
the nation to war without obeying its restrictions. Unfortunately, even if
the president were to agree to the act's restrictions, he could still attack
Iran and have up to 90 days before being required to get congressional
authorization for the attack.
What to do? Congress should not wait. It should hold hearings on Iran before the president orders a bombing attack on its nuclear facilities, or orders or supports a provocative act by the U.S. or an ally designed to get Iran to retaliate, and thus further raise war fever.
....The law should be attached to an appropriations bill, making it difficult for the
president to veto. If he simply claims that he is not bound by the restriction
even if he signs it into law, and then orders an attack on Iran without
congressional authorization for it, Congress should file a lawsuit and begin
impeachment proceedings.

Italics mine. Diamond, obviously, has more than the usual insight into how the Bush
administration thinks and acts, since Condi Rice chose him to advise the CPA on
Iraqi development in early 2004. His conclusion: the administration plans to bomb Iran and plans to do it whether Congress likes it or not. Listen up, Democrats.

and this from the same piece......

.........But recklessness, not prudence, has been the hallmark of this administration's foreign policy. Beyond this, the president and vice president subscribe to what some call the "unitary executive," which is a fancy way of saying they believe that Congress cannot prevent the president from doing almost anything he wants........

the fact anyone would want this much power makes them unqualified for the job. police jobs require psycological testing for god sake......how can we put someone in charge of WMD's, the likes of which the world has never seen before, when they are so clearly unqualified....jez!.....who is making these terrible decisions??

America, it's time to pull over and get directions.......
