US Senate votes against amendment to stop 'endless' war in Iraq and Afghanistan

US Senate votes against amendment to stop 'endless' war in Iraq and Afghanistan | 13 Aug 2017 | The US Senate has voted 61-36 to kill the amendment, proposed by Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) which would repeal the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for Use of Military Force (AUMF) in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Senate can't repeal the AUMF without replacing it with a new authorization, said Senator John McCain (R-Sociopath-Arizona). Paul had vowed to delay the passage of the $700-billion dollar National Defense [sic] Authorization Act (NDAA) if he didn't get a vote on repealing the AUMF. "We have been there for 16 years. It is time for [the wars] to end. It is time for Congress to vote on whether or not they should end," Paul said on Monday.
