US House passes resolution to limit Trump’s ability to wage war on Iran

The US House of Representatives has approved a resolution asserting that Trump must seek approval from Congress before engaging in further military action against Iran. The measure passed the Democratic-run chamber 224-194. It aims to mandate congressional approval for any conflict with Iran, except in cases of an imminent attack against the US. The resolution is not binding on the president.

I didn't see the Dems blocking the Obama administration from dropping the most amount of bombs under any president.

Trump's doing way better than I expected, no new wars, diplomatic talks with every country, saved an embassy from being overrun, multiple hostages in hostile countries rescued, Iran's #2 taken out for terrorism without any meaningful backlash, Isis destroyed. Where's that ww3 the Dems have been promising since Trump was elected?

if anyone believes pelosi then your just as nuts as she is. she's past her expiration date to make any clear judgements . the United States Does NOT need a passive president, an apologetic president or a president who hands over billions of dollars to countries who don't use it to fix their economy. if that's what pelosi and her crew wants then America is truely F***ed. don't like trump vote him out by using your vote. remember the Constitution doesn't prevent an A**hole from becoming president, so this whole trump has no decorum BS to sit in the highest office in the land is laughable.

Not binding. So Trump says he is going to do something, Dems say "no" and Trump does it anyway. Seems about right.

The Congress didn't really mean this since it is non-binding. Which means they are a bunch of yellow pusses who are just posturing for the public. No president should have unrestricted power to attack.
