The passing of this bill shall only harm the population of Iran and shall fuel the authocratic government of Iran to be even more aggressive and oppressive. My recommendaton is to get the Iranian officals to the negotiatng table and show willingness of the West to have a dialugue. This Government is not capable of conducting a decent negotiaton and shall do its best to avoid that scenario. That way everyone , including the general public in Iran realize how deceitful and irratonal the incumbants are and that shall weaken the position of the government even amongst its own supporters compelling them to revisit theri policies. DO NOT provide them with the excuse of pretending to be the righteous nad down trotten one.

The government in Iran has already shown that although they are willing to "negotiate" they are not in any way willing to slow their present course. They have made recent outright statements of confirming desire to eliminate Israel from the global map. Israel, America, and all other concerned countries should make every effort to constrain this goal. This is, at least, an effort in that direction.

Washington politicians are mere whores for AIPAC and the military-industrial complex. We Americans should reduce or eliminate our payments towards U.S. federal income taxes (which are unconstitutional anyway, since they were not ratified in accordance with the US Constitution). I myself have stopped paying, for it is better to break a human law, than to violate one's conscience.

Remember the Nuremberg war trials? 'Just following orders' is no excuse - a human rights violator will still go to prison. And U.S. law makes it illegal to fund terrorists - yet 'Uncle Sam' and 'Israel' fit the definition precisely. The U.S. and the so-called nation state of 'Israel' (which lacks both established borders and a national constitution, thereby calling the legitimacy of its statehood into doubt) are rogue states. Please read "Addicted to War", by Joel Andreas and/or "Killing Hope", by William Blum.

We need to get out of Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Greece and anywhere else where we can't make any difference. We've got bombs if we know where their hiding. Our "cat and mouse" fighting will only continue to kill thousands unless we change our tactics. Worried about the innocents? The terrorists aren't, and the're killing them right and left.

Refined? The refineries in N.O. are national security and not part of an investigation. Why not import this?

Nothing the U.S. does will have any effect on Iran. Evil cannot be negoiated away. The only option the U.S. has in regard to Iran is to threathen to nuke it with a timeframe for doing so, preferably prior to their having nuclear capabilities.
