A Nuclear War? Over Venezuela?

• https://www.lewrockwell.com, By Ron Paul

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was on the Sunday news programs to claim that President Trump could launch a military attack against Venezuela without Congress's approval.

Pompeo said that, "[t]he president has his full range of Article II authorities and I'm very confident that any action we took in Venezuela would be lawful." The man who bragged recently about his lying, cheating, and stealing, is giving plenty of evidence to back his claim.

The president has no Constitutional authority to start a war with Venezuela or any other country that has not attacked or credibly threatened the United States without Congressional approval. It is that simple.

How ironic that Pompeo and the rest of the neocons in the Trump Administration are ready to attack Venezuela to "restore their constitution" but they could not care less about our own Constitution!
