Sanction Against Iran Is An Act Of War

By Congressman Ron Paul

24 April, 2010

Statement of Congressman Ron Paul – United States House of

Statement on Motion to Instruct Conferees on HR
2194, Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act –
April 22, 2010

Mr. Speaker I rise in opposition to this
motion to instruct House conferees on HR 2194, the Comprehensive Iran
Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act, and I rise in strong
opposition again to the underlying bill and to its Senate version as
well. I object to this entire push for war on Iran, however it is
disguised. Listening to the debate on the Floor on this motion and the
underlying bill it feels as if we are back in 2002 all over again: the
same falsehoods and distortions used to push the United States into a
disastrous and unnecessary one trillion dollar war on Iraq are being
trotted out again to lead us to what will likely be an even more
disastrous and costly war on Iran. The parallels are astonishing

We hear war advocates today on the Floor scare-mongering about reports
that in one year Iran will have missiles that can hit the United States.
Where have we heard this bombast before? Anyone remember the claims
that Iraqi drones were going to fly over the United States and attack
us? These “drones” ended up being pure propaganda – the UN chief weapons
inspector concluded in 2004 that there was no evidence that Saddam
Hussein had ever developed unpiloted drones for use on enemy targets. Of
course by then the propagandists had gotten their war so the truth did
not matter much
