Tim Kaine introduces resolution to block war with Iran

Sen. Tim Kaine, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, introduced a resolution to block President Trump from further escalating hostilities with Iran. The resolution is privileged, which means Republicans cannot block it from reaching the floor. The resolution requires that any hostilities with Iran must be explicitly authorized by a congressional declaration of war.

And this would change things... how? We already have a military presence in the area, and have had several military conflicts without declaring formal war since... I think WW2 was last declared before we actually entered it? I would need to brush up on my history to be certain.

Day (1)... Choose one option: (A) Bully: "Give me your money." *Gives bully the money.* Or... (B) Bully: "Give me your money." *Punches bully on the nose.* Day (2)... Draw your own conclusions.

Unfortunately this bears no consequence on the eventual outcome here which will unfortunately be war. It makes no difference whether the CIA or the Israeli Mossad manufactures a retaliation or one actually happens, the the United States will continue to provoke and escalate this until war breaks out and they overthrow the Iranian government, grant access to the multinational oil companies that are dying to get in there and establish a Rothschild controlled central bank.
