In Symbolic Vote, House Rejects Iran Deal Resolution

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

The U.S. House of Representatives on Friday rejected the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers that has been the subject of heated debate in Congress for weeks.

The resolution to approve the deal failed 162-269, although the vote was largely symbolic and will have no impact on implementation of the groundbreaking nuclear accord. On Thursday, the Senate rejected a resolution of disapproval of the deal, helping it clear a major hurdle that essentially ensures its enactment.

PEACE has become graffiti in America.

Dollars before sense.


#5

If we could just figure out a way for peace to be more profitable than endless war, slaughter and displacement, we could turn most of the world's problems around in just a few hours.
But, (sigh)...

For them it is simple dollars before sense.


#8

This is the beginning of the end of AIPAC.


#9

What peculiarly stupid people run the USA.

As a symbolic gesture this vote is identical to the one finger salute these men and women are giving to the people of America and those of the military in particular.

A bunch of cowards hiding safely on their own continent.
Give them a rifle, fly them in to Iran, and leave them to be so brave.

"The resolution to approve the deal failed 162-269, although the vote was largely symbolic"
And as Saint George Carlin use to say, "I'll leave symbols to the symbol minded'! As far as the twenty-five democrats that voted with the rethuglicans, if I were a constituent of theirs, I'd be looking around for a good dyed-in-the-wool socialist to replace them come next November! But what the hell, it seems that a lot of amerikan's love having a white hot piece of rebar shoved up their back sides by the political elites every two years!

Excuse me nineteen50, but, you used the international spelling of the word peace, the amerikan spelling is piece, as in "The United States demands a piece of Iraq, Iran, Syria, Ukraine, Russia and China". It is a common misspelling!
