State legislator takes national stance against ‘endless wars’
If Congress is not willing to declare war in the Middle East, Rep. Tyler Lindholm, R-Sundance, wants America to bring home its troops.
“This is ridiculous,” Lindholm said. “We’ve been over there for more than a decade, and we don’t really know why.”
By relying on an Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) in the Middle East instead of an actual war declaration, Lindholm said Congress has denied service members the clarity they need to finish the job — whatever that may be.
