Rep. Peter King (R-NY) Says Alleged Iran-Backed Plot ‘An Act of War’

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) tells CNN’s Erin Burnett the alleged Iran-backed plot to kill a Saudi Arabian diplomat in the U.S. constitutes an “act of war.”

Many in Iran argue the case has been fabricated to provoke a military confrontation with the Islamic Republic.

Still others question the timing of the announcement by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

Holder has come under increased scrutiny of late for his alleged role in the botched “Fast and Furious” gun running scheme. On Wednesday, Holder received a subpoena from House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA).

    It’s always these fat, over-50 year old fucks who want war. If Peter King wants war, he should take his fat ass down to the Army recruitment center and sign-up for active duty. The rest of the country is just plain weary from 10 years of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    When the chatter came across the news wire about the alleged Iranian assassination plot my first thought was, now Obama has his pretext to invade Tehran and start WWIII.

    Especially this being the start of the election season and since he can’t fix the economy, the next Ace up his sleeve is a new war. Americans love war. We can’t get our fill. Even when war with Iran, a nation of 75 million, allied with Russia and China, could end disastrously for us.

  3. Randy Arroyo says:

    Do Americans remember “Weapons of Mass Destruction”? Just keep perspective and hold Obama’s feet to the fire on this. If he even tries to launch another war, he needs to be impeached and called up for war crimes.

    My gut tells me the timing of this is directly linked to the Holder subpoena.
