2. Support S.J.Res.68 – Remove US forces from hostilities with Iran not authorized by Congress
Date: Call our Senators this morning. The Senate is debating amendments now and will vote on the bill at 10:45 this morning.
Action: Call Senator Cantwell and Senator Murray. Tell them to support the Kaine resolution, S.J.Res.68 to prevent another war, and issue a public statement opposing war with Iran.
Background: On the evening of Tuesday, Jan. 7, Iran fired missiles into two Iraqi bases housing U.S. soldiers in retaliation for the assassination of Major General Qassim Suleimani. It is unclear whether the retaliation is over, and we don’t know the full extent of American casualties. There have been reports of Iraqi deaths as a result of the strikes. This is Trump’s fault. Since being elected, he has escalated, provoked, and threatened Iran. He chose to assassinate one of its political leaders, knowing that Iran would retaliate.
