In response to Bill-806's comment:
Not sure I can talk to this, but I will give it a try ........... "over there" is a bloody mess and all the "score cards" in theater will will never make that a better place........ My heart goes out to all our service people who have been killed , wounded or come home in a bad state of mind, in what looks to be more of a quagmire with "rules of engagement" and bad U S policies that lead to nowhere .......... BTW, looks like the administration is being "sooo cute" looking for Congress to bless/sanction the desires of our brilliant C I C ........ As my G W B T-SHIRT says........ "MISS ME YET" !!!!
Ahhhahahaha. Just when I think you can't sink any lower you surprise me again.
GW Bush and Tony B. Liar are borderline war criminals, IMO. David Cameron - whom I despise for a myriad of reasons - at least had the decency to put the issue to the Commons here....and enough of his own, conservative, Members of Parliament revolted and refused to sanction an attack on Syria so the UK will not participate. Exactly right, regardless of one's view of the rightness of yet another attack/war on another sovereign nation.
I'm a big supporter of Obama and would be shocked and horrified if he launched any sort of military action without the consent of Congress.
Are you seriously espousing the right of the President of the US....the Commander-in-Chief of the US Armed Forces....to take direct military action at will?
What if Obama wants to attack Utah next, is that ok or do you think he should try to get approval from Congress first?
[/QUOTE]You missed my point ....... Just saying that the "BIG O" never consults with Congress about anything, & now he does, ummmmmm ..... BTW, I am tired of all the war in the middle east and the effects on 2+ generations of Americans....
