Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Wake me up when one of those asshats "urges" repeal of the AUMF. Which would "restrain" all presidents.

In theory.

Pelosi vows vote to end 2002 [AUMF]
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that the House will soon vote to repeal a 2002 resolution that empowered the Pentagon to conduct military operations in Iraq.
"We will have that resolution coming up SOON under the leadership of congresswoman Barbara Lee," Pelosi said during a press briefing in the Capitol.

The comments came just hours before the House was scheduled to vote on a separate resolution designed to limit President Trump's unilateral military confrontations with Iran. That measure, sponsored by CIA Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.), is a response to Trump's decision last week to launch a drone strike in Baghdad that killed a top Iranian security commander.
