A WAR IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC??? TELL SEN. GRASSLEY TO DO HIS JOB: STOP TRUMP FROM TAKING US TO WAR WITH IRAN

On Wednesday, April 22, 2020, President Trump tweeted, “I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.” Provoking a war in the middle of a pandemic?!?! Immediate action must be taken to impose constitutional restraints on Trump’s inclinations to endanger the Middle East and the entire world.  

On February 13, the Senate passed an Iran War Powers resolution with a vote of 55-45 but Senator Chuck Grassley, the president pro tempore has been dragging his feet on bringing the bill to the president's desk. Tell him to do his job and move the bill along to the next stage already! 

U.S. residents, fill out this form to contact Sen. Grassley and tell him to do his job.

Dear Senator Chuck Grassley,

This is urgent. On Wednesday, April 22, 2020, President Trump tweeted, “I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.” Provoking a war in the middle of a pandemic?!?! Immediate action must be taken to impose constitutional restraints on Trump’s inclinations to endanger the Middle East and the entire world.

The assassination of General Qassim Soleimani—a man who had a popularity rating in Iran of over 80% because of his successful fight against ISIS- and U.S. airstrikes in Iraq before that brought us to the brink of war at the start of 2020. Now with Trump threatening Iran on Twitter as a way to distract from his gross negligence in handling the COVID-19 pandemic, we are heading to that brink again. Poll after poll in the U.S. states clearly that the American people do not want to be dragged into another war in the Middle East.

On February 13, the Senate passed an Iran War Powers resolution to prohibit Trump from using military action against Iran without congressional approval with bipartisan support and a vote of 55-45. On March 11, a companion bill passed in the House. However, you have dragged your feet at getting the bill to the necessary next stage. As president pro tempore, this is your job. As a person who is deeply worried about the possibility of a war with Iran — in the middle of a pandemic — I am calling on you to do your job. Move the Iran War Powers Resolution to President Trump’s desk already.

Sincerely,

Comments

    American “leaders”, start acting the way our forefathers created our government for in the first place and protect us from enemies domestic (and those foreign ones that actually attack us in our country- not in a space you carved out in YOUR enemies countries and regions). And while you’re at it, just stop starting conflicts with ANY country for any reason and put your hand out in peace and love. That’s what my parents taught me. Finally, start spending our tax money on education and helping our countrymen and women realize their potential, while in health health.


    After all, what other reason are you there for?

    This is total madness … allowing trump to continue his attack on Iran.

    Congress, especially those from California, must put an end to this madness.

    If Iran had assassinated Mr Pompeo in an airport in, say London, or Paris, what would Mr Trump’s reaction be, especially if Iran had the audacity to threaten us with extreme punitive measures if we retaliated?

    Iran has been intentionally goaded into action to justify war by a President using it as a distraction from his impeachment. We cannot let men and women on both sides die for this.

    This was is an injustice, and we are dragging millions of lives into hell just for a re-election attempt. This is a time for Americans to stand up and decide our country’s actions for ourselves!
