Following this week’s nuclear debacle in Greece, President Peeta Mellark (Liberty-D12) formally asked Congress to approve articles allowing for an intervention in Greece.
Earlier this week, it was determined that nuclear weapons previously controlled by the rebel Greek military had become unaccounted for. Since then, it has been determined that while the Greek military was in the process of moving the stockpile under the possible intent of using the weapons on their own, several nuclear weapons were misplaced in the process and fell into the hands of terrorist organizations. It is currently unknown which organization has the nuclear weapons.
Congress easily passed the articles allowing for an intervention. The House passed the articles by a vote of 134-66. The Senate vote tally is below.
