The U.S. House of Representatives passed House Resolution 559 on Wednesday which paves the way for a war with Iran over nuclear weapons.
The resolution declares that “it is the policy of the United States that a nuclear Islamic Republic of Iran is not acceptable.” It says that the “International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirmed in May 2023 that Iran continues to enrich uranium to 60-percent purity.”
That is the purity for nuclear power, not nuclear weapons. The resolution calls on the U.S. to “use all means necessary to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.” So that would include military attacks and presumably more cyber attacks too given that the U.S. is the only country to ever launch a cyberattack on ad adversary with Stuxnet during the Obama administration.
But the FBI is warning that Iran will launch a cyber attack on the U.S. FBI Director Christopher Wray testified to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Tuesday and said this: “The cyber targeting of American interests and critical infrastructure that we already see conducted by Iran and non-state actors alike we can expect to get worse if the conflict expands, as will the threat of kinetic attacks.”
