US senators have adopted a resolution that the president would not be allowed to take military action against the Islamic Republic of Iran without congressional authorization. In the Senate, 55 senators voted in favor and 45 in the Senate. The document adopted by the Senate differs in structure and text. The document obliges Trump to halt all hostile actions against Iran before a special order or declaration of war, which is Congress-constitutionally mandated. In addition, the resolution stipulates that it should not be regarded as a “barrier to the United States from imminent attack.” The Senate’s passage of the document, in which Republicans hold a majority in the House, shows that not all Trump supporters agree with him on taking tough treatment of Iran.
About how much the new resolution can affect the developments in Iran and the United States Dr. Fouad Izadi, American Studies Expert, Faculty of World Studies (Online) and Faculty of Law and Political Science (affiliated) University of Tehran We sat down for a conversation.
What will be the outcome of this resolution for Iran?
The consequence is that even Republicans are concerned about Trump’s foreign policy and Trump’s anti-Iranian policies, Republicans realize that having the power to attack Iran for Trump is ultimately not in the American interest and should limit Trump’s power to Trump. Recall that in the first chapter of the US Constitution, Congress has delegated the matter to the war, not the President. So it’s a victory for people who oppose Trump’s policies against Iran, but the system has the capacity to veto Trump, and it also has 55 votes and needs 67 votes to get a Trump veto. It broke that this probably wouldn’t happen.
Could this resolution improve US-Iran relations?
First, the plan will be vetoed by the US president if it actually has no effect on Trump’s policies, but merely to symbolize the congressional opposition to Trump’s policies.
has it. Americans, too, are not interested in negotiating and are interested in dictating their views and expect Iran to write and accept this dictation. Negotiations mean a deal, and the Americans are no longer ready to give Iran any concessions. They are saying that Iran should become a normal country, and in their view, it is a weak country that adheres to US foreign policy. Iran will not accept this and therefore it is not open to negotiations. If the Americans were ready to negotiate, they would be ready to make concessions, and you would not see this in US foreign policy toward Iran.
For more details also with the doctor Seyed Mohammad Marandi, Dean of the Faculty of World Studies (North American Studies Group), Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literature, University of Tehran We sat down for a conversation.
Will critics of Trump’s allies and passage of this resolution make things better for Iran?
These are Trump critics who label Trump as a dangerous and unpredictable person for the next election. Otherwise, this was the case in Obama’s day, and the Democrats made no attempt to denounce the Obama administration’s violent behavior in Syria or in Iraq or in Afghanistan. Or restrict it to Yemen, but it doesn’t make much difference to the Islamic Republic of Iran because Iran has so much self-confidence. US bases are vulnerable to the country’s defense barriers, as we have seen in the attack on al-Assad and the regimes in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait know that if there is a conflict, they will provide US troops with facilities. In fact, their so-called survival will be at stake. Therefore, given the current balance of the Islamic Republic, it is unlikely that Americans will want to make such a move.
Can it be expected that with this resolution, Trump will cease hostility with Iran and start a dialogue?
The Americans have to go back to Brajam and act and make up for the damage, and now the testimony of Iranian military officials has also been added, and I don’t think it’s possible to actually negotiate with Trump. American conditions in the region will gradually get tougher in the coming months. Negotiating with Trump is virtually useless, only making them more bold, and the only logical way right now is to pressure the US that the Resistance Front and the Resistance States will do so in the coming months.
