Senate Voted to Give Bush Defacto Green LIght for War with Iran

This is a dark day for America...again, under this government. The Senate has betrayed our country in favor of a would be tyrant.

Here is Think Progress' take:
By a vote of 76-22, the Senate passed the Lieberman-Kyl amendment, which threatens to “combat, contain and [stop]” Iran via “military instruments.” Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) called the amendment “Cheney’s fondest pipe dream” and said it could “read as a backdoor method of gaining Congressional validation for military action.”

Hillary, the neocon, voted for the admendment. Obama did not vote. Shame.

My DD:
Josh Marshall at TPM had an excellent video yesterday explaining the danger of the Kyl-Lieberman amendment that was debated on the floor of the senate yesterday. In a nutshell, the amendment would have represented a codification of the US's opposition to Iran as groundwork for military action against them in the future, just as was done with Iraq.
