A war in Iran would make the Iraq war look like a walk in the park. It would be an unmitigated disaster.

United States came very close to striking targets inside Iran in response to the downing of a U.S. drone in the Persian Gulf.

Last week the White House announced thousands of additional troops would be sent to the Middle East in response to the alleged Iranian attack on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

Last month, the New York Times reported that the Pentagon had presented a plan to the White House that envisions sending as many as 120,000 troops to the region to fight Iran.

Mark my words. A war in Iran would make the Iraq war look like a walk in the park. It would be an unmitigated disaster.

If the United States were to attack Iran, Iran could respond with attacks on U.S. troops and on countries around the region. It would lead to the further destabilization of that region in a way that is unimaginable and would result in wars that would go on year after year and likely cost trillions of dollars.

Taking us into a war without Congressional authorization would be unconstitutional and illegal. The United States Congress must do everything it can to prevent this war. The Constitution is very clear: It is Congress, not the president, who decides when we go to war.

And it is long past time for my colleagues in Congress to reassert that authority.
