January 6, local time Sunday (5) night, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Pelosi said that this week, the house will propose and vote on a war power resolution to limit Trumps military operations in Iran.

In a letter to House Democrats, Pelosi said, last week, the trump administration conducted provocative and disproportionate military air strikes on Iranian officers, which escalated tensions in Iran and endangered our military, diplomatic and other personnel.

As members of Congress, our primary responsibility is to ensure the safety of the American people, Pelosi said. Therefore, we are concerned that the government has not consulted Congress when it takes action and has not respected the war power that Congress has granted the president under the constitution.

So this week, the house of representatives will propose and vote on a war power resolution to limit the presidents military actions against Iran. The resolution reaffirms the long-standing responsibility of the Congress to supervise and stipulates that if Congress does not take further action, the governments military hostilities against Iran will stop within 30 days..

Democrats in the house of representatives are dissatisfied with Trumps decision to order the assassination of Sulaimani without informing Congress in advance. On April 4, the White House formally submitted a notice to Congress, informing of the air strikes against Sulaimani. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the White House announcement raised many concerns and showed that Congress and the American people knew nothing about American national security.

Trump has his own way of saying that people should pay attention to his twitter. On June 6, he posted on his personal twitter account that if Iran attacks American citizens or any targets, the United States will quickly and comprehensively fight back, and may take disproportionate actions. And these posts will serve as a notice to Congress. In response, the House Foreign Affairs Committee forwarded his message and shouted, the power of war belongs to the United States Congress, you are not a dictator.

At least eight people were killed in a rocket attack on Iraqs Baghdad International Airport Wednesday, including Sulaimani, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Holy City Brigade. According to public information, in 1973, the U.S. Congress passed the war power act, according to which the president of the United States must notify Congress 48 hours before carrying out military operations.
