Congress Wants Authority to Launch Nuclear Weapons, Not the President They Say

Quote:
President Donald Trump’s threats against North Korea and tweets about the United States’ powerful nuclear arsenal have raised the specter -- however small -- of nuclear war.

But some members of Congress argue that the current process by which the president can order a nuclear strike is illegal.

"Our view is the current nuclear launch approval process is unconstitutional," U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif, said on CNN on Aug. 8, 2017. Lieu has filed a proposal to require congressional approval before the president could launch a first nuclear strike.

Can you imagine having to wait for the congress to act? What a joke.

When/where did the President say he was going to launch nuclear weapons on the DPRK or anywhere else?

What happens if all or most of Congress is dead ? Didn't have time to get to the safety of their under ground cities . The enemy was not N. Korea but some nation that really did have a guidance system that would reach Washington  DC.
I wouldn't give Congress authority on ANYTHING !

Wow, isn't it interesting how these issues have come up NOW under President Trump?

Isn't the President Commander-in-Chief?

Well, well, isn't Congress tough?

Where were they when obama exported nuclear technology, materials, and billions of dollars to ramp up Iran's capabilities? Oh, plus the 400 million cash payment to have our hostages returned after the fact?

If N Korea can hit the US, it should consider DC.
  

Why aren't we investigating the President and staff that held office while the supposed Russian interference occurred?

Congress has nothing to say about which weapons the POTUS uses.

It is the president's job to PROTECT the country from any attack and if he feels one is imminent, he may act accordingly---congress, or no.  In this day and age of nuclear armageddon, presidents don't have time to politely ask congress, "Would you PLEASE pass a declaration of war against "_____", because it might take them until doomsday to decide, (if they ever get out of the restroom!)
Every congressional democrat (and damned fool pub) should read and heed the following:
POTUS Job
Congress can declare war if, and when, the POTUS requests it--even after the fact.

GAD, I hate stupid congressmen--or women!

Congress couldn't make such a decision.     By the time they got their act together, it would be too late.

North Korea, can you wait to make any aggressive moves? Congress is on a 4 week vacation and will take this issue up when they get back....
