Skip to comments.Schatz seeks to block Trump from attacking Iran
Posted on 01/07/2020 12:46:08 PM PST by LeoWindhorse
U.S. Sens. Brian Schatz and Tim Kaine have introduced a War Powers Resolution in an attempt to force a debate and vote in Congress to prevent further escalation of hostilities with Iran, Schatz said.
Congress, not the president, has the constitutional authority to declare war, and I oppose a war with Iran, Schatz, D-Hawaii, said Monday in a release. No one mourns the death of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, a ruthless terrorist responsible for the deaths of thousands, including hundreds of Americans.
But Trumps decision to have him killed him near Baghdad airport carries serious strategic consequences for which he was unprepared, including the unraveling of our relationship with Iraq, undermining our ability to prevent ISISs return, and putting U.S. diplomats and service members in Iraq and the region in danger, Schatz said.

Shithead Schatz DOES NOT speak for me and I am one of his constituents. This moronic little man can barely tie his own shoes, he should not be trying to affect national security processes. I completely disavow this man. I speak on behalf of thousands of fellow Hawaii residents that detest this mouthy little nitwit. He can go pound sand.
As in plural of shat?
Dang - You read my mind!!!
Good let put the Unconstitutional War Powers act to a court test finally.
Odd, they didn’t have a problem with Obozo attacking Libya, for no good reason.................
Schatz was a Senator back then, he was bussing tables in Waikiki
“”””’Odd, they didnt have a problem with Obozo attacking Libya, for no good reason.................””””””””””
Six months after Clinton took office he was dropping Tomahawk missiles into downtown Baghdad. No big deal.
Obama approves airstrikes against Libya, March 19, 2011:
OMG, LOL, at Tim Kaine. I still recall his absurd and ill mannered behavior at the debate with Mike Pence. That debate may well have convinced some truly undecided voters, to vote for the Trump-Pence ticket.
And Trump is the Commander and Chief just like Obunghole and Cliton who sent drones and dropped bombs where ever they wanted to with no congressional approval.
I think what’s happening, is that, because it’s Trump, now the liberals/Democrats/media are aghast at military actions.
When a good Democrat performs such actions, then it’s ok. When Obama took out Bin Laden, the media, liberals, and even the hens on “The View” celebrated. But Trump taking out this terrorist has everyone aghast about triggering World War 3.
First time I ever heard this kook Tim Kaine talk he said (paraphrased) that Georgia and Russia stopped fighting because Obama asked them to. (2008)
Those arsehole Demoncraps are going to get us all KILLED!
Bernie, Tim, Nancy, AOC, Schiftt, etc etc etc....
My husband said, Let’s send Nancy to Iran, or Iraq! Without her security detail.
I looked it up today, there were many protests and riots when Obama “killed” Osama! Big deal when terrorists mourn and protest the killing of TERRORISTS!
You cannot negotiate with a terrorist or with a two year old!
TIME TO DISENGAGE
Sadly, nobody has informed the MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX (MI) or the NEOCON WARHAWKS in DC.
There may be a way to let them know how we feel BEFORE the next national election on 11/3/2020. It may be too late if we wait for that.

(I just copied and pasted Christopher Bedford’s brief comments to the WH. It was delivered!)
YOUR TURN...before YOUR kids (boys & now girls) wind up in another no-win exercise in madness in the blood soaked sandbox called the Middle East where warring tribes have been killing one another since forever and the only “winners” are the owners of the MI.

Killing Soleimani Was The Right Move, And Shows Precisely Why Its Time To Leave Iraq
Christopher Bedford, The Federalist
Rather than ask how to whip Iran, we should be wondering if our blood and treasure is better served in defending against the real threats to our homeland. Unending American war in the Middle East drains our coffers, military strength, and political will, all to the glory of Moscow and our true enemies in Beijing. Meanwhile, foreign policy hawks in Washington are terrified Russia might follow our lead, as they have in Syria. Since his inauguration, President Donald Trump has killed the leader of ISIS, and now the Iranian general responsible for hundreds of American dead. Hes done a great deal to clean up the mess his predecessors left him in Iraq and Syria. Now it is time to disengage.
Why would this surprise anyone? Liberals I know were all incensed by BushII’s military actions. They’d say war is never a solution. I’d call them all out saying that they were fine with Clinton bombing people. Then they’d say that’s different. They’ve always been the worst sort of hypocrites. Not one of them has a single iota of self-awareness.
Nothing new here.
