• War With Iran

    From Lee Lofaso@2:203/2 to All on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 02:50:35
    Hello Everybody,

    War with Iran.
    The US President already has the authority to strike.
    Thanks to the events of 9-11.
    And a compliant Congress granting him that authority.


    I would have used a shortened url, but had I done that then some
    poor misguided soul would have falsely accused me of being a troll.

    Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF)

    Passed by the Congress after the events of 9-11, granting the
    president the authority "to use all necessary and appropriate
    force against those nations, organizations, or persons he
    determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided, the terrorist
    attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such
    organizations or persons."

    Please do feel free to read the entire text. It is quite a doozy.

    What this means is that the Trump administration truly believes
    (Trump is always right) Iran and al-Qaeda have been in cahoots before
    or after the events of 9-11, then it (Trump himself) can claim war
    with Iran already is authorized by the Congress.

    Therefore, Trump can do whatever he wants, anytime wants, without
    getting any permission from anybody to do it.

    "Ultimately, I'm always right." ~US President Donald J. Trump
