Stop the March to War with Iran
Earlier this year President Donald Trump told Americans that, “great nations do not fight endless wars.” Yet his administration continues to drag the country towards another ruinous war without end, this time in Iran.
Designating Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps as a “terrorist organization”–over the objections of the Pentagon–is just one more provocation in a series of escalations.
But we also have some good news to share. Sens. Tom Udall (NM), Rand Paul (KY), and Dick Durbin (IL) reintroduced the “Prevention of Unconstitutional War with Iran Act of 2019,” which would ban funding for a U.S. military attack against Iran without authorization from Congress. This bill re-asserts Congress’ constitutionally-designated authority to determine if and when the United States goes to war.
