Fighting Complacency Amid Danger

Netanyahu should threaten to use nuclear weapons on Iran, says neocon Daniel Pipes. His statement is part of an effort launched after Hassan Rohani's election in order to gradually close all options on Iran except for war. In Congress, the effort goes beyond inflammatory rhetoric.
Before members of Congress leave for their August recess, they will be pressured to vote on a new Iran sanctions bill. Israel and its friends in Washington are pushing to ensure diplomacy fails before it’s given a chance to succeed. Top Republican Senator Lindsey Graham also stated this week that he will introduce a bill authorizing war with Iran if the Iranian nuclear program is not shut down by October.
