Android : The authorization to use military force in Afghanistan is 18 years old today, as old as some of the soldiers we now send to do battle there. We owe it to them to put an end to endless war, and as commander in chief, I will.

Android : .Secretary Pompeo: An attack on Saudi oil is NOT an attack on America. If you want a war, come to Congress to make your case. We will not let you drag the American people into another catastrophe in the Middle East.

Your job is to use diplomacy to resolve conflict—not incite more war. twitter.com/AmichaiStein1/…

iPhone : We’ve seen that President Trump is willing to raid critical military funds to build his wall— including the $125 mil he’s taken from military projects in NM.

So I couldn't vote for today's funding bills without measures to ensure $ goes where intended. But Senate Republicans wouldn't allow them.

Twitter Web App : JUST IN: US military spent at least $184,000 at Trumps Turnberry resort in Scotland, documents show hill.cm/kiTYCLM

Android : Just stop, Secretary Pompeo

1. We have no defense treaty with the Saudis. An attack on them is not an attack on us.

2. Therefore any military response to it, without a vote in Congress to authorize it, would be illegal. twitter.com/AFP/status/117…

Twitter Web App : Army veteran and Director of Government Relations for VoteVets, Will Goodwin, says Donald J. Trumps new National Security Adviser, Robert OBrien, rubber stamp Trump’s every crazy whim and “will undoubtedly make us less safe, and cost American troops their lives.”

Twitter Web App : 2020 voters, in our June swing state poll, had a clear message for Washington: Repeal the 2001 #AUMF and NO War with #Iran. #ForeverWar #NoWarWithIran #VoteVets2020 #WednesdayWisdom

Twitter Web App : Our 2020 swing state poll from June shows overwhelmingly strong opposition to a war with #Iran, support for a repeal of the 2001 #AUMF that was passed after 9/11, and wariness of any further involvement in #ForeverWar around the world.
