Congress Votes For A War With Iran

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.”

He also warned that Iran has plans to assassinate current and former U.S. officials. Iran says that it will ignore U.S. warnings on Israel because they are “invalid.”
