The president is really itching for a war with Iran after repeated drone strikes have killed at least one Middle Eastern military leader. As of last night, it was believed a second drone kill hit an Iraqi leader. Trump has been bragging on Twitter about how this was all a measure to stop a war from happening.

Democrats have been scrambling to try and save the country from going into yet another war in the Middle East, but senator and former Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine has introduces a resolution that would effectively block the president from going to war.

According to reports, the resolution is privileged, which means that Republicans cannot stop it from reaching the senate floor, but as Kaine sees it, there was no other way out.

Kaine said this to the media:

“For years I’ve been deeply concerned about President Trump stumbling into a war with Iran. We’re now at a boiling point and Congress must step in before Trump puts even more of our troops in harm’s way.”

Kaine continued:

“We owe it to our service members to have a debate and vote about whether or not it’s in our national interest to engage in another unnecessary war in the Middle East.”

Chuck Schumer also spoke out to the president to let him know that this war was not going to happen, saying:

“The president does not have the authority for a war with Iran,” Schumer said. “If he plans a large increase in troops and potential hostility over a longer time, the administration will require congressional approval and the approval of the American people.”

Trump said to his guests at Mar-a-Lago that this should have been done a long time ago, which begs the question, why did it take him three years if we were in such imminent danger?

“What the United States did yesterday should have been done long ago. We took action last night to stop a war. We did not take action to start a war.”

Not so fast, pal.
