Says Constitution recognizes his right to unilaterally launch hostilities on Iran.

Trump's foreign policy is not in the US's interest - he just does what the rich Jews who own his ass tell him to do. Jason Ditz 22 hours ago | 200 words 795 14

Passed in the Senate in February and the House in March, the Iran War Powers Resolution appears to have come to an end on Wednesday when it was vetoed by President Trump, who insisted it was “very insulting” and dangerous to limit his ability to attack Iran.

The resolution was a preemptive War Powers Act challenge to a war with Iran, aiming to note that Congress has not in any way authorized a US war against Iran, and ordering them to stop any military actions related to this unauthorized conflict.

Trump has repeatedly argued that the Constitution gives him the absolute right to make decisions on who to attack, saying it was insulting to suggest otherwise, and that it would be dangerous to any way limit the possibility of the US carrying out preemptive attacks.

The War Powers Act gives Congress the power to limit such actions. That said, neither the House nor Senate passed the resolution with anywhere near a veto-proof majority, and that likely means Trump’s veto is the end of this particular legal challenge, for now.

Bush 2 total destroyed most of the middle east. Trump has been beating the drum for war with Iran before he got the job, plus he has told the world that it would be for jew land. Trump will get his way the same that Bush 2 got his way: false flag

Wrong. It was the Uber-neocon John Bolton that was beating the war drums against Iran, all to benefit Israel. ;)

I have to wonder WTH Trump was thinking to even hire Bolton, he must have known what he was getting.

Bolton was on the NSC under Dubya. So he had the credentials to support him being on Trump's team.

Bolton showed his true colors and Trump dumped him quickly. ;)

Bolton showed his true colors (blue on white background) under shrub. The guy has a long track record of warmongering.
