U.S. Senate: Oppose the New Worldwide War Authority

    1. Sponsored by

      American Civil Liberties Union

The House of Representatives recently passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which contains a dangerous provision that authorizes a worldwide war against terrorism suspects and against nations suspected of supporting them.

This new war authority would give the president — any president — the sole power to send American service men and women into war anywhere and everywhere around the globe, wherever there is a terrorism suspect.

The worldwide war amendment would have no clear enemy, no expiration date, no geographical boundaries, and no connection to the 9/11 attacks or any other harm or threat to Americans. It would essentially declare a worldwide war without end. It is shocking that Congress is entertaining such legislation at a time when many are looking to see an end to escalating conflict and abuses of power in the name of fighting terrorism. The bill now moves to the Senate.

Take action! Tell your senators to oppose new worldwide war authority.

      Do we really even need to say it? Are you people fucking blind? Blind?

      The fucking world is falling apart because rich bag-heads like you get caught in the camera and get paid under the table and lie about in public.

      Now you're going to try to take your incessant genocidal psychosis across the world?

      If I ever get into congress, I will kick everybody's ass.

      You better get your heads out of them before I'm around, or they'll get kicked too.

      Now on a pleasant note. Resign before I show up.
