Today’s Action: No War with Iran

On January 3, Trump ordered an airstrike that killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. He then provoked Iran further, deploying thousands of troops to the Middle East, threatening to bomb Iran’s cultural sites, and vowing excessive force should Iran retaliate to these acts of aggression in any way. Read: war, willfully and gleefully crafted…and with no authorization from Congress.

How did we arrive here, three years after Obama left us with our most promising relationship with Iran in decades? Trump has stoked war with Iran from the moment he took office. His Muslim Ban blocked Iranians from travel to and from the U.S. Trump broke U.S. commitments under the Iran nuclear deal and imposed crippling sanctions on Iran’s economy, hurting Iranian citizens in the process. The killing of Soleimani is the latest, and the most dangerous, in a three-year escalation by Trump to launch a war in Iran.

And all of our acts of warfare since September 11, including Trump’s moves the past few days, have been conducted outside the purview of Congress, who willingly gave Bush, Obama, and now Trump the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF)…which has led to nearly two decades of endless, expansive war, unhindered and unchecked by Congressional vote or public debate.

We are on the brink of war with Iran, manufactured by a sociopath in the White House. We must stop it, for the sake of potentially thousands of lives. Call (202.224.3121) or email your Members of Congress and urge them to do the following:

  1. Cosponsor and pass the War Powers Resolution S.J.Res.63 (or the companion resolution, which will be introduced to the House shortly by Barbara Lee and Ilhan Omar) to immediately withdraw our armed forces from hostilities with Iran, unless explicitly declared by Congress;
  2. Demand Congress repeal both the 2001 and 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), which individually and combined give Trump unilateral ability to continue and expand our endless war.

Put the brakes on Trump’s reckless war mongering.
