Both chambers of the US Congress on Wednesday gave final approval to a resolution to restrain President Donald Trump from attacking Iran. The vote comes after months of soaring tensions between the US and Iran.
The House of Representatives voted 227-186 to join the Senate in support of the resolution. The measure would prevent any military action against Iran without Congress voting for it explicitly.
However, the resolution is likely to be vetoed by Trump, due to the lack of a majority within the Democratic Party and divergent Republicans. [ ]
The resolution sends a clear message that American people dont want war with Iran and that Congress has not authorized war with Iran, said Rep. Eliot Engel, a New York Democrat and chairman of the House of Foreign Affairs Committee.

that’s okay. Wuhan gonna take them out.
I’m glad our crack congress is on the s*** that matters.
WTF would any of us do without them?
Congress weighs in on the side of America’s enemies.
I must have missed it when Trump said he actually wanted to go to war with Iran.
And this after the Jerusalem Post is reporting that two American soldiers in Iraq were killed today by rockets from Iranian backed militias
Trying to tie the president’s hands in the face of lethal attacks by an enemy sure sounds like giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
Treason Iran is our enemy and they give them cash, and aid and confort
Which Republican traitors voted for this?
Righteously VETO BAIT!
Remember John Kerry's daughter *married* an Iranian bigwig. Wonder how long till she gets Coronavirus?
Meanwhile, Trump is getting us out of Afghanistan...oh, the Congress did not notice??
Surprised they haven’t passed a similar resolution on going to war with space aliens. After all Trump created Space Force, he must be looking to start an interstellar war.
Don’t be deporting any purple people eaters either. That’s just racist.
F congress. It is time that where we go one we go all. E plurus union And all.
Engel voted to impeach President Trump. He is not ethically qualified to speak on behalf of the American people.
Probably because all of their children have lucrative jobs tied to Iran.
The President is specifically authorized to conduct a military operation for 60 days without a Congressional declaration of war.
In the case of this stupid resolution, it looks like the Congress is promoting the narrative that the opportune hit on the Iranian assassin almost caused WWIII, so that they can pound their own chests and proclaim that their resolution prevented this war. Of course, there never was any danger that WWIII would erupt, and the assassin should have been taken out years ago.
Idiots. Playing politics, still, when there are far more important things going on. Like a pandemic.
We should be on high alert over those Klingons around Uranus.
Directed at Democratic members of Congress, of course.
