Yesterday, the House of Representatives virtue-signaled its opposition to a war with Iran. It adopted a resolution directing the president to terminate the use of American armed forces to engage in hostilities in or against Iran or any part of its government or military unless Congress approves.
This direction ignores the fact that we are already at war with Iran — and have been for over forty years. Not because we want or have chosen to be, but because the mullahs actually seek "Death to America."
The House resolution and a pending Senate counterpart moreover are frauds. It takes a statute to prevent the U.S. military from defending us against the Iranian regime and the weapons it’s employing against this country and its people, including Soleimani’s Quds Force.
If Congress won’t join the President in protecting America, it should stay out of his way.
