After the occupant in the White House killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, it looks like he's turned Soleimani into an Iranian Marter. WaPo reports:
But the theocratic regime and its allies cast his death — the result of a U.S. drone strike on a convoy carrying him and a number of other prominent pro-Iranian militia leaders out of Baghdad’s international airport early Friday — as a martyrdom, the heroic sacrifice of an icon of “resistance” whose influence and supposed charisma helped stitch together a network of pro-Tehran proxy groups throughout the Middle East.
meanwhile, Stateside, Speaker Pelosi will and Senator Tim Kaine already has, introduced "War Powers Resolution to limit the President's military actions regarding Iran"
The resolution, Pelosi writes, "reasserts Congress's long-established oversight responsibilities by mandating that if no further Congressional action is taken, the Administration's military hostilities with regard to Iran cease within 30 days."

The letter comes as the US is deploying thousands of additional troops to the Middle East following the airstrike that killed Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani. Earlier Sunday, President Donald Trump reiterated his threat to target Iranian cultural sites.

"Last week, the Trump Administration conducted a provocative and disproportionate military airstrike targeting high-level Iranian military officials. This action endangered our servicemembers, diplomats and others by risking a serious escalation of tensions with Iran," Pelosi writes.

Pelosi said the resolution would be led by Rep. Elissa Slotkin of Michigan, who previously worked for the CIA and was an analyst for the Defense Department specializing in Shia militias.


This is all deeply concerning as tRump is still impeached and these latest actions seem to confirm that as long as he is still in affice, he is more and more amboldened by the day. To whit:




I am really deeply concered. It not just a matter of what's next, it's when. We have a deeply unstabe person in the White house a deeplky dysfunctional state Department and we are in trouble. Iran has been around for thousands of years, Our country?

Less than 300.

Welcome to Monday, friends.

hm, looks like a decent compromise between MFA and ACA.

I'm ngl, but this MFA thing (in theory sounds ideal) but if kind of Freaking me out. AND is scaring my mom, (though that could because he really hates Bernie and not a fan of Warren - she refuses to vote for either of them even if they are the nom).

Remember how hard it was for us to get the ACA passed?

it nearly didn't so I am not worried about MFA being passed ala the way Bernie says.

It's goin to take years, so I hope that will settle some of your mom's fears.

Exactly (about it taking years to happen).

There is so much that would have to be worked out, esp how its paid for.

Greetings, Comrades!

Welcome to Cloud-Cuckoo land.

A friend of my posted this on the book of face:
