The US Senate votes for war with Iran

    The American Senate passed the Iran War Resolution 55 to 45, despite Trump’s opposition. Now, the resolution needs to be adopted by the Congress, yet it is unlikely to happen due to the fact that the Democrats have majority there. Nonetheless, it still a possibility, as some Democrats may feel the need to support the allied Israel and protect the US sources of oil. The American President warned the Senate not to green-light the measure on Wednesday, tweeting that “it is very important for our country’s security that the United States Senate not vote for the Iran War Powers Resolution,” and adding, “If my hands were tied, Iran would have a field day”.
