House denies Trump endorsement for attacking Iran

The Democratic-led House of Representatives Friday approved an amendment to a broad defense bill that would prohibit funding for US military operations against Iran unless they are in self-defense or explicitly approved by Congress. Democrats argued that President Donald Trump’s “hawkish polices were pushing towards a needless war.”  A similar measure failed in the Republican-dominated Senate. The two chambers will have to negotiate on this amendment before finalizing the defense bill.

      Many (Persians) will stumble over these; they will fall and be broken; they will be ensnared and captured.
      Isaiah 8:15

      Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Behold, I will break the bow of Elam (Persia), the mainstay of their might. And I will bring upon Elam the four winds from the four quarters of heaven. And I will scatter them to all those winds, and there shall be no nation to which those driven out of Elam shall not come. I will terrify Elam before their enemies and before those who seek their life. I will bring disaster upon them, my fierce anger, declares the Lord. I will send the sword after them, until I have consumed them, and I will set my throne in Elam and destroy their king and officials, declares the Lord.
      Jeremiah 49:34-39

    I am from southern Nigeria, south eastern Nigeria precisely. We see the democrats as weak, pacifist and a weak. They will ruin the US if they are not checked. Godless perverts. Some of them are immigrants on a clandestine mission to weaken and destroy US!

    News regarding mandatory niqab in the House and Congress are pure speculation at this time.
    And even if, the niqab will be applicable only for women.

      Get real!!! Abbas can’t even control Gaza!!! Israel is the promised land for a reason. 50 years from now, we’ll still be way ahead and more advanced than your outdated societies. You should try Crack Cocaine, it’ll enhance your hopes of a Palestinian state.

    It’s the same democrats that allowed Obama to send billions to Iran. They would rather support the enemy than their own people.

      In this case, the most dangerous enemies of thge USA are: a 20 trillion $ debt, half from fighting gratuitous wars for mostly private gain over the last 30 years, an entrenched unelected bureaucracy in DC preoccupied with their own paychecks, a lazy legislative branch unwilling to debate the merits of foreign intervention, and a totally out of control military-industrial complex. Iran is hardly a blip on the radar. It poses no threat to a nation who knows Yahweh their maker.

    see, you are basing your hope on that broken rod of USA , which will go into a man’s hand if he makes use of it for a support; for so is America to all who put their faith in him.

    nothing like a little good old fashioned gridlock to help keep the executive branch out of mischief, and help the pres keep his promise to end our participation in every foreign dogfight on the planet. welcome home, reason, peace and prosperity. Make america great, actually for the first time. Righteousness exalteth a nation….

    The truth is. They can not invade Iran like they did in other countries around. Against Iran is needed a full scale war.

    Trump has been in power for 30 months. There is nothing the Democrats can do, that will change his mind.
    Iran will regret attacks on US interests and allies in the region.
