Prevent War with North Korea

Cosponsor S. 2047/H.R. 4837


War with North Korea would impose disastrous costs on the United States and its allies. Congress urgently needs to seize control of this situation and stop the dangerous, escalating rhetoric on both sides from sparking a global catastrophe.

Support S. 2047/H.R. 4837 to keep President Trump from starting a war with North Korea without congressional authorization

  • The Preventing Preemptive War in North Korea Act of 2017 sponsored by Sen. Chris Murphy (S. 2047) and the No Unconstitutional Strike on North Korea Act (H.R. 4837) sponsored by Rep. Ro Khanna would bar the president from attacking North Korea absent congressional authorization or an imminent attack on the U.S. or allies.
  • Congress must not let one person decide to start a war that could cost millions of Korean and American lives and involve significant U.S. forces on the ground in Korea.
  • Threats, sanctions, missile defenses, and pressure on other countries cannot be relied on to avoid miscalculations or halt further nuclear and missile advances.
  • The United States used dialogue and diplomacy with North Korea in the past to avoid war while securing vital national interests—as it did with the Soviet Union before that. It must do so again.
