Trump Vetoes Congressional Resolution to End Yemen War

The bill, SJ Res 7, was a straightforward bill under the War Powers Act of 1973. The bill noted that Congress never authorized the US war in Yemen, and demanded an end to it. The US Constitution grants sole power to declare wars to the Congress, and by extension the power to order an end to illegal wars.

Trump legt Veto gegen Resolution des Kongresses ein, den Jemenkrieg zu beenden

Das droht einen sehr gefährlichen Präzedenzfall zu schaffen, denn nach Jahrzehnten, in denen Präsidenten unilaterale Kriegsbefugnisse beanspruchten, war der Jemen die erste wirkliche Herausforderung im Rahmen des War Powers Act, die an Dynamik gewann. Dass sie mit einem leichten Veto und wenig Kontroversen ausgelöscht wurde, trägt nur dazu bei, dass der Präsident zumindest de facto einseitige kriegerische Befugnisse hat, und die Kontrolle des Kongresses nur auf dem Papier existiert.

Why would she humiliate Britain like this? Lawyer savages Theresa May’s Brexit deal

But her claims rang hollow for Mr Howe, a specialist in EU law who let loose in a caustic column for The Sun. He wrote: “Politicians who claim this is just a bad treaty – one we can get out of later – are being ignorant or disingenuous.”

With respect to the backstop for Northern Ireland, for example, he said once it was in force, the UK would not be able to leave it without a joint decision with the EU which he said amounted to a veto over the UK’s exit.

Syria: western nations seek to bypass Russian veto at UN

Called “uniting for peace”, it would enable nine members of the 15-strong security council to bypass a Russian veto and refer the matter to a full vote at the general assembly. It would then require a two-thirds majority by the general assembly for an attribution mechanism to be agreed.

The 1950 “uniting for peace” route was explicitly designed to be used when the security council could not meet its responsibilities over maintenance of peace.
