General Pushes For U.S. War With Iran Retired United States Army General John Keane seemed to push for starting a war with Iran when speaking with two subcommittees of the House Committee on Homeland Security. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdXwMSZtXpg http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/...pts-_n_1032972.html?view=print&comm_ref=false WASHINGTON -- House Republicans gave the stage Wednesday to hardliners who called for everything from cyber attacks to political assassinations in response to Iran's alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador on American soil, which was revealed earlier this month. "We've got to put our hand around their throat now," retired Army Gen. John Keane told a hearing of two key subcommittees of the House Committee on Homeland Security. Speaking of the Quds Force, which is accused of masterminding the foiled plot to use Mexican drug traffickers to carry out the hit in Washington, he implored the panel, "Why don't we kill them? We kill other people who kill others."
