US House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, has told President Donald Trump that the United States cannot and the world cannot afford another war.
Pelosi stated this after Iran began its attacks on America troops on Wednesday.
In a post on Twitter, Nancy Pelosi said: “Closely monitoring the situation following bombings targeting U.S. troops in Iraq.
“We must ensure the safety of our service members, including ending needless provocations from the Administration and demanding that Iran cease its violence. America & world cannot afford war.”
The US Speaker had earlier announced that the House Democrats are preparing to vote later this week on a War Powers Resolution which is aimed at limiting Trump’s actions in Iran.
Naija News had earlier reported that more than a dozen missiles were fired by Iran at two Iraqi military bases hosting US troops.
It was gathered that the missiles targeted the Ain al-Assad base in Anbar province and a facility near Erbil’s airport in northern Iraq very early this morning.
They were fired in retaliation for the killing of top Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani by the US, Iran said.
Recall that Iran had threatened a retaliation attack on the US, following the death of Solemani.
