This escalation seems unnecessary given what we know to this point. Thus, Congress must be given all of the facts to weigh and then decide if military action is prudent. Our system of checks and balances has failed us before, WMDs in Iraq, but is still the way we must proceed. Should well founded evidence be discovered then perhaps military force is one of the options to consider if all attempts at diplomatically diffusing the situation fail. However, without further investigation and hard evidence it would be reckless at best, disastrous at worst, to enter into a military conflict with Iran.
