As our friend Pamela Geller said today in one of her post…
This is an act of war. This is not happening in a vacuum. These are acts of war, just as the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in the streets of Sarajevo sparked the First World War. Iran is targeting Ambassadors all over the world…

* The Washington Post brings us the following report this Friday afternoon and it goes in part like this… A group of 32 senators from both parties unveiled a new Senate resolution Thursday that would establish the sense of the Congress that containing a nuclear Iran is not an option. …A group of senators held a press conference Thursday on Capitol Hill to explain the thinking behind the resolution and reinforce its bipartisan character, including Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Bob Casey (D-PA), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Chris Coons (D-DE), and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT)…

* JTA has the following report posted on their website today and it goes in part like this… “I'm trying to build a bipartisan consensus around something we all believe in,” Graham said when asked by a reporter why he had removed language that seemed to threaten Iran with military force… But the bill is already provoked jitters among Democrats anxious over the specter of war… As it now stands, the resolution “affirms that it is a vital national interest of the United States to prevent the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability.”… The language that was removed would have affirmed “that it is within the power and capabilities of the United States Government to prevent the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability.”… Noting the “power and capabilities” of the United States seemed too close to saber rattling for some Democrats, insiders said. A number of senators asked Graham to include an explicit denial that the resolution authorized military action; he flatly refused… Capitol Hill insiders say that if Graham had not changed the language at all he likely would have failed to garner more than nominal Democratic support...

West considering Tehran's Offer to Resume Nuclear Talks
About this Video: A call by Iran for a quick resumption of nuclear negotiations with world powers drew a cautiously receptive response from U.S. and European officials on Thursday, opening a potential avenue for reducing the mounting tensions between Tehran and the West. Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, sent a letter to the European Union's foreign-policy chief, Catherine Ashton, dated Feb. 14, which requested "to resume our talks...for sustainable cooperation" at the "earliest" possible time, according to a copy of the letter.
