The Constitution already clearly defines the powers given to the president and to Congress regarding military action. We don't need anything more at this time to muddy the waters.

This is the absolute wrong time to question President Trump's authority as Commander in Chief. Iran, North Korea, China, Russia need to know that we are united against their tyranny, suppression of their people and terrorism and attacks on the US and our Allies. The Democrats are about to cross the line and become traitors.

Absolutely not! Despite the fact that Trump's name does not appear in the Resolution, it is intended to limit only Trump, and not future presidents. Democrats had no such concerns about Obama's drone strikes, including his targeting of an American citizen.

Congress has the authority to declare war, and retains that right. The President, however (whether Trump or any future president) must retain the authority to defend against an enemy assault or to take quick action in a surgical strike if our interests are attacked. A quick, proportionate strike can prevent additional escalation by an enemy.

Iran must be jumping for joy in the face of this Resolution. They know they can strike with impunity because Congress has tied Trump's hands. Congress cannot assemble, discuss and vote on giving such authorization in the length of time it takes for a missile shot from Iran to reach our troops. Unless and until they can move that quickly, they have no business tying Trump's hands and prohibiting a timely defense. American lives are at stake.

No, that's the special powers the Presidents have, if doesn't have that military power he was just like a member of the congress.
