Actually, from what we have been able to gather, from various constitutional scholars and attorneys, the Bushites can't even be stopped from striking Iran, unless Congress acts to prevent it.
In other words, it isn't enough for various Reps. and Senators to get up on the floor of their respective chambers and say that Bush can't go into Iran without Congressional approval, it will require an Act of Congress.
Even then, who knows if Bush and Cheney will abide by the law. They have shown no signs of being law abiding so far.
Immediate Impeachments: Preventing "The Guns of August" in Eurasia:
The Bush Jr. /Cheney refusal to obtain additional authorization from Congress for this substantial enlargement of U.S. armed forces in Iraq constitutes an impeachable offense under the terms of Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution for violating the Constitution’s War Powers Clause and Congress’s own War Powers Resolution
If President Bush Jr. and Vice President Cheney are not stopped immediately by means of impeachment, they could readily set off World War III in the volatile Middle East, Persian Gulf and Central Asia, where two-thirds of the world’s hydrocarbon resources are up for grabs among the United States, Russia, China, and India. The Guns of August indeed.
O n the evening of 10 January 2007 in a nationally televised address to the American people from the White House, President Bush Jr. announced that he was going to “surge” an additional 21,500 U.S. troops into Iraq. Both President Bush Jr. and Vice President Cheney also made it perfectly clear that they would initiate this “surge” against the manifest will of the American people expressed in the U.S. national elections of November 2006 and without obtaining authorization by the U.S. Congress.
