What You Need To Know About The Escalating War In Syria

The United States has decided to go to war with Syria… except that it wasn’t a decision approved by Congress, and the U.S. has already been waging an illegal war with Syria for the last several years. Why isn’t every member of Congress calling Trump out on this?

Unless another county directly attacks the United States, the president has no constitutional authority to order an attack on that country unless he has approval from Congress. In this case, the Trump administration is justifying airstrikes against the Syrian government by claiming that Assad is responsible for an alleged chemical attack, even though the reports have yet to be verified, and have been disputed by a number of sources.
