Democrats in the House of Representatives have introduced a resolution to limit President Donald Trump’s power to initiate more military action in Iran. Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said this will limit the president’s ability to “wage war” arguing that Congress must prevent the White House from endangering American lives.
Someone needs to tell Pelosi that’s it’s too little too late. American lives have already been endangered by the killing of top Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. Trump notified Congress on Sunday that he would “quickly and fully strike back, and perhaps in a disproportionate manner” should Tehran strike “any person or target.” The US president also warned that “brand new” American military hardware worth trillions of dollars would head Iran’s way in the event of retaliatory action, according to a report by RT.
Pelosi, a top-ranking Democrat said the resolution was necessary in order to reassert Congressional oversight over war powers, especially since Trump did not consult lawmakers before carrying out a drone strike that killed Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran’s elite Quds Force. The bill “reasserts Congress’s long-established oversight responsibilities by mandating that if no further Congressional action is taken, the Administration’s military hostilities with regard to Iran cease within 30 days.”
But Democrats like war just as much as Republicans, so don’t expect this piece of paper with words on it to matter much, especially to the ruling class. Rules are for the little people, not those who hoard power.
President Donald Trump’s tweet alludes to his willingness to ratchet up tensions with Iran. He appears, for all intents and purposes, ready and willing to participate in a plot that could very well ignite a third world war.

Trump has to be removed from office by an ambulance team and taken to a psychiatric ward. Someone call 911 and do it before the Radical Jewish Terrorists attack America again as they did on 9/11! The assassination of Soulieman marked the point of proof of insanity, mental incompetency and another act of treason, placing the Radical Jewish Terrorists interests over the interests of the United States in a heinous, criminal act of treason in violation of national and international law, and doubling down on his treasonous acts of serving Radical Jewish Terrorists and the Terrorist Nation of Israel at the expense of the rest of the world and national security.
President Bone Spur wants this war on orders of jew land, the democrats can do what ever they want but if Trump wants a war it will happen. Millions will die, it could go nuclear and the entire world will suffer
End Radical Jewish Terrorism, Treason, and Tyranny in America controlling the DNC, RNC, and Trump!
Democrats can talk of walls, super predators, groyping, and Mid East adventurism but block Republicans for doing the same.
Are you just in competition for the same globalist subsidies — particularly, against private money interests and the sovereignty of rogue nations?
No one in DC cares about the REAL victims of a hot war. The 19 and 20 year old kids. They will gladly send them to some god-forsaken hole to die for Empire and oil and resources as long as they look good and get their cut of the spoils.
Trump has let his supporters down.
Wait…is he still playing 4D chess?
Uh oh…they have a list of locations of Trump properties to attack.
Silly Persians must think they are cultural sites.
Gee, she didn’t seem to have a problem with it when Obama was droning American citizens and others in the ME. She also didn’t have a problem with Obama attacking Libya, Somalia, Syria, Pakistan and others. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
Old Sailor, great points. The Kool Aid drinkers (Jim Jones type hemlock drink, not an ethnic slur. Get a grip folks) on the other side of the political aisle cannot think logically and cannot see their hypocrisy. Clearly the previous administration involved the USA in much more intrigue than our current President.
Democrats are now becoming traitors to our nation. It is absolutely mind boggling to see what TDS can do to weak minded individuals.
Brilliant!!! I hope Congress acts quickly before the Military Industrial Complex is able to react! Once done, the “MIC” goons will exact their revenge on the traitorous politicians saving the public from having to do it themselves by voting them out…
Here here FU. That’s the real threat. Talmudic Jews are the scum of the galaxy. They want everybody dead. Noahide law. Trump signed off on it. Trump is a Jesuit. He’s not what people think.
So many people fall for the propaganda dished out by FOX, MSNBC, CNN, Breitbart, etc. They are too lazy to do any investigating into history…especially in the Middle East. They seem to believe that US motives are always honorable and right, no matter what. They are wrong.
The Anglo American empire has been interfering in the ME for over a hundred years, From WW1 when Sykes-Picot drew up borders where there had been none, dividing tribes right down the middle (Like Iran/Iraq/Syria/Saudi borders), to WW2 when they began to annex the oil, to Operation Ajax in 1953 to overthrow Iran and install a leader who would continue to allow the theft of the oil, to the invasion of Iraq to loot resources.
Here’s a little perspective about General Soleimani. The Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Aleppo held a service to honor the martyrdom of general Soleimani who had an essential role in the liberation of Aleppo from the US backed jihadis. Reverend Ibrahim Naseir said “All what Qassem Soleimani did was stand up for Christians against ISIS and Al-Qaeda.” His church in Aleppo was destroyed by the NATO sponsored fundamental jihadists…the same terrorists who almost ethnically cleansed Syrian Christians from their towns and cities. General Soleimani crushed those jihadists.
The US motives in the ME are nothorable. They are not “spreading democracy” or “humanitarian” causes. They are killing innocent people and plundering resources. They are backing terrorists like Al-Queda and ISIS all the while posing as being in the fight against these terrorists. These terrorists are US mercenaries. These proxies are the terrorists…not the Iranians who fight them.
Stop believing US bullshit propaganda designed to manufacture consent for war.
Remember; Obama called the guy a terrorist but didn’t do anything about. So now Trump is trashed for doing something. Dems are never going to give Trump credit for anything.
