Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders just dropped a brutal truth bomb on the Democrat party.
When asked about the War Powers Resolution passed by the House that will give the House more authority to limit Trump in being able to carry out strikes in Iran, Sanders stated, “I can’t think of anything dumber.”
It would be very easy to classify the recent resolution by the House as nothing more than political theater.
Regardless of how Democrats are portraying him, Trump is not a warmonger.
The attack that was carried out that took out General Soleimani was a tactical strike to prevent planned attacks from being carried out.
Not only that, it would be very easy to make a case that Soleimani was the most notorious terrorist alive at the time of the strike.
Instead of applauding Trump, Democrats want to make him out to be some type of war criminal.
If a case was going to be made to limit the powers of a president in terms of a drone strike, it should have been done when Bush or Obama were in office.
Hundreds of innocent civilians were killed by both of them.
They also both have the dubious honor of having hit wedding parties with drone strikes.
Just a Bad Idea
The biggest challenge in requiring Congress to approve these strikes is the urgent nature in which they are often conducted.
Many times, these strikes are given the “go” within hours or minutes of intelligence reports coming out.
Our military finds out a target of opportunity in exposed, they confirm the target, and they spin up a strike force.
That would no longer be the case if Trump has to wait for Congress to convene, see the information, then decide if they want to approve the strike or not.
Sanders addressed this very issue, stating, “They can’t seem to manage to get much of anything done.
“I think the last thing we want to do is push powers into Congress’s hands and take them away from the president.”
She then added, “Under the Obama administration, they projected weakness.
“President Trump does everything complete opposite of that.
“He’s finally projecting strength, and he’s letting them know that they will not be pushed around, there is a red line, and if they cross it, he will respond.”
This resolution is not only political theater, but it is also dangerous in that is makes our country far less safe from threats from Iran.
