Without a clear objective, you end up in endless war. So what is the objective of #NDAA Section 1225 authorizing war to ‘counter Iran’? Is it regime change in Iran? Regime change in Syria? More war in Syria? Yemen?

Im urging my colleagues to vote YES on the Gabbard amendment that will be up for a vote today in the House which will simply strip Section 1225 from the #NDAA – upholding our constitutional responsibility and preventing this blank check for endless war from becoming law.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Urges Congress To Oppose Authorization for War Against Iran

(22.5.2018) Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) spoke on the floor today urging support for her amendment in the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that upholds Congress’s constitutional power to declare war. The congresswoman’s amendment strikes the language of Section 1225 of the FY2019 NDAA that authorizes the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of State to develop and implement a strategy to counter the “destabilizing activities of Iran” and only afterwards inform Congress. The amendment will be on the House floor for a vote tomorrow, May 23.
