90-1 US Senate Vote: De-facto 'Declaration of War' on Iran
The US Senate on Saturday passed by a 90-1 vote a non-binding resolution insisting that the United States prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and ruling out any strategy aimed at dealing with a nuclear-armed Iran.
Passage of the resolution comes as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has pressed Washington to spell out what would provoke a U.S.-led military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities. The Senate acted in the final hours before Congress broke for its weekslong recess.
The only senator to vote against the resolution was Republican Rand Paul, a Tea Party and libertarian favorite, who argued that it was a de-facto "declaration of war".

All sides dont agree..........and BELIEVE what we are all told as an innocent youth (limiting our devine selves)
This is the problem . Where is the respect and love for one another?
There for ...... WE WILL ALL GET WHAT WE ALL DESERVE
We will see what happens when there is no love and repect for our ourselves, the others around us and the environment that we are so dependant upon.
ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE!
