      Record, dated Feb 28 2013.  It starts on p 191.

      I noticed this in the lengthy legal preambles:

      Whereas, in December 2012, 74 United States Senators wrote to President Obama ‘‘As you begin your second term as President, we ask you to reiterate your readiness to take military action against Iran if it continues its efforts to acquire a nuclear weapon.
      The ominous tone builds throughout and it is mitigated somewhat by the second section which is much shorter than the first.  This is it:
      Nothing in this resolution shall be construed  as an authorization for the use of force or a declaration of war.
      Here's the list of sponsors:
      Mr. GRAHAM (for himself, Mr. MENENDEZ, Ms. AYOTTE, Mr. SCHUMER, Mr. CORNYN, Mrs. BOXER, Mr. RUBIO,
      Mr. CASEY, Mr. HOEVEN, Mrs. GILLIBRAND, Mr. KIRK, Mr. BLUMENTHAL, Mr. CRAPO, Mr. CARDIN, Ms. COLLINS, Mr.
      BEGICH, Mr. BLUNT, Mr. BROWN, Mr. WYDEN, Mr. PORTMAN, Mr. MANCHIN, and Mr. LAUTENBERG)

      There is no existence without doubt.
