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

In the wake of the assassination of Iran’s military leader, General Qasem Soleimani, the House has passed legislation to block Trump from plunging us into war unfettered by Congress – and it passed with a handful of Republicans joining the Democratic majority. The vote now moves to the Senate.

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.
