It is very important for our Country’s SECURITY that the United States Senate not vote for the Iran War Powers Resolution. We are doing very well with Iran and this is not the time to show weakness. Americans overwhelmingly support our attack on terrorist Soleimani….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 12, 2020
….If my hands were tied, Iran would have a field day. Sends a very bad signal. The Democrats are only doing this as an attempt to embarrass the Republican Party. Don’t let it happen!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 12, 2020
The Senate will pass the war powers resolution. The King of Israel will veto it like he did when it passed the Yemen resolution. This is all political theater.
“Washington (CNN)The Senate is expected to pass a War Powers resolution this week aimed at restraining the President’s ability to use military action against Iran without congressional approval, a move that comes amid simmering tensions with the country in the wake of a US strike that killed a top Iranian general.
Debate on the resolution is getting underway on Wednesday, and a final vote is expected on Thursday.
Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia kicked off that debate in a Senate floor speech in support of the resolution.
“We should not be at war with Iran unless Congress votes to authorize such a war,” Kaine said. “While the President does and must always have the ability to defend the United States from imminent attack, the executive power to initiate war stops there. An offensive war requires a congressional debate and vote. This should not be a controversial proposition.” …”
America First takes a backseat to Israel and Saudi Arabia.
Trump needs his war powers for he can launch more attacks on Iran for Sheldon Adelson who plans to spend $100 to $200 million on the GOP in the 2020 election.
