TAKE ACTION: Support the "No Unconstitutional Strike Against North Korea" Act
Unless there is a diplomatic breakthrough by the end of March between the United States and North Korea following the "Olympic Truce," U.S. military maneuvers in the region will resume and North Korea will likely resume long-range missile tests.
Worse still, there continues to be loose talk in the Trump administration about a "preventive" attack on North Korea that could result in a disastrous all-out war.
Now is the time for the U.S. and North Korean governments to find a way to begin direct talks on steps to reduce tensions and to agree to negotiations designed to halt and reverse North Korea's nuclear and missile pursuits.
A growing chorus of concerned members of Congress are weighing-in through the "No Unconstitutional Strike Against North Korea Act," introduced in both the House and Senate.
These bills, H.R. 4837 and S. 2016, clarify that only Congress has the authority to authorize military action initiated by the United States and urge the Trump Administration to "avoid actions that could contribute to a breakdown in talks, and continue to search for confidence-building measures that are conducive to dialogue."
If you are in the United States, we invite you to take action by sending a message to your member of Congress and your Senators to co-sponsor the legislation.
