Ayatollahs and Democrats

The “We Hate America” Party strikes again:

On Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a War Powers Resolution supposedly directing President Donald Trump to stop any hostilities against Iran. This resolution — which Republicans have rightly condemned as “toothless” — does not have any binding authority and merely tells Trump the House disapproves of his strike to kill Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani.
The House approved the resolution, 224-194, with almost no Republican support, the Associated Press reported.
“The killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, as well as Iran’s ballistic missile attack on Iraqi bases, risks significant escalation in hostilities between the United States and Iran,” the resolution states. . . .
After the strike killed Soleimani, the Pentagon reported that intelligence linked the Quds Force leader to the siege on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and with a forthcoming attack on U.S. troops in the region. . . .
This piece of virtue-signaling seems particularly ill fated after Trump’s statement calling for deescalation on Wednesday.
Democrats are trying to condemn as a violation of Congress’s war powers a strike that killed a man responsible for much terrorism and the deaths of hundreds of U.S. troops in the region and that did not result in a war.

Nancy Pelosi is objectively pro-terrorism.
