Today’s Action: Tell the Senate to block Trump’s ability to wage war with Iran

We seem to have the votes in the Senate to block Trump from unilaterally plunging us into a war with Iran, including up to 12 Republicans who may be swayed. This is huge, seeing members of the GOP seeking to censure the president and put the reigns on his reckless acts of warfare. But with the impeachment trial in full swing in the Senate, and McConnell delaying the Iran vote, our job now is: locking in those votes and gaining even more.

When President Trump betrayed the world by reneging on America’s commitment to the Iran nuclear deal, global onlookers wondered what options were left besides war. The assassination of Iran’s military leader, General Qasem Soleimani, is itself being called an act of war by allies and adversaries alike. And yet, while the Constitution gives Congress — NOT the president — the power to declare war, the highest ranking Congressional Democrats were not even aware, much less consulted, due to Trump’s exploitation of the Bush era Authorization for Use of Military Force Act (AUMF).

Contact your Senators and demand they support both S.J.Res.63 to block Trump from waging war with Iran before it starts AND a repeal of the AUMF!

Republicans are declaring that General Soleimani was a murderer who deserved to be killed. That is beside the point. What about the tens of thousands (or more!) who would certainly be killed in yet another open-ended U.S.-led war overseas. What do they deserve?

More than a century later, no one debates whether or not Archduke Ferdinand deserved to die, because we know that his assassination was the instigation for plunging the world into years of brutal war. Millions died as a result. Actions have consequences, and if the Trump regime refuses to consider those consequences, it’s time for Congress to take back its Constitutional power to declare war — and stop it.

Call (202.224.3121) or email your Senators today and tell them to support the repeal of the AUMF and vote for S.J.Res.63 to stop Trump’s deadly march to an entirely avoidable war with Iran.
