As you know, the reaction from many Democrats to any news related to the airstrike Trump ordered on Soleimani near Baghdad has crossed into the surreal. Pete Buttigieg has even gone as far as to basically blame Trump for the Iranians shooting down a passenger jet in Iran:

Meanwhile, Chuck Schumer would clearly like everybody to believe that Trump’s trying to start World War III and portray Democrats as heroes for stopping something that isn’t happening:
We need Senator Kaine’s bipartisan War Powers resolution now more than ever.
President Trump’s erratic and impulsive decisions have made Americans less safe.
Congress must hold the president accountable and assert our authority over matters of war and peace. pic.twitter.com/KRPWrgOM44

Imagine Schumer’s reaction if Trump had done nothing and the U.S. embassy in Baghdad would have come under attack and there had been casualties.
Where's the "war" Chuck?

Schumer obviously would like everybody to believe there currently is a war.

A useless and meaningless vote that is unbinding and does only one thing. It gives Aid and Comfort to the Terrorist Enemies of the United States. I guess that tell us a lot about today's Democrats.
