Iran resolution

Why I don't want to vote for Hillary:
Hillary Clinton was the only Democratic contender who voted for the resolution, sponsored by Independent Joe Lieberman and Republican Jon Kyl.
It denounces the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization, despite the unit being part of Iran's army. Critics call the Senate resolution without precedent, and say it gives a green light to the White House to attack Iran.
It's not clear whether the measure will survive a House-Senate conference committee that's just getting started, but Clinton's opponents are already using it to question her judgment.
"In what we voted for today, we will have an opportunity to designate it as a terrorist organization, which gives us the options to be able to impose sanctions on the primary leaders to try to begin to put some teeth into all this talk about dealing with Iran," she said.

Teeth? As in military force right? I mean that's what it sounds like to me. The administration is doing everything it can to authorize itself to act in any terrorist matter without any consultation with Congress. Giving them a passed resolution that declares Iran a terrorist organization will give authorization for war action. This is the wrong choice Ms. Clinton and I really hope it causes a drop in your overwhelming support. I don't want you as my President.

And one more thing... STOP PASSING FUCKING RESOLUTIONS AND START ACTUALLY SOLVING THE PROBLEM WITH THE WAR IN IRAQ. We voted a democratic Congress in to pass laws to fix the problems that the administration has created, not to pass resolutions that don't mean anything because they don't do anything.
