However saying that i think this resolution needs to be repealed. But technically POTUS does not need congressional approval unless the action continues up to 60 days or more.

    That's a possibility, since Hussein wouldn't let the weapons inspectors do their jobs.

    It is never okay to shoot missiles at civilians. For the record I am against any intervention at this point... and if you have not noticed... your GOP friends are mostly for an attack..

    Reagan didn't need to get congressional approval. It's called, THE WAR POWERS ACT.
    So he got that when he aided the Contras right?

    Well...there is a huge difference. Namely, IF Obama and the US strike Syria, it will have been without a huge propoganda campaign like we saw where the Bush administration tried to link Iraq over and over and over to 911. Obama has also not labled himself "A War President", like GWB did immediately after taking office.

    BTW...I don't support a military strike on Syria based on what I know at this time. I think it would be premature.

    Well, your good deed of the day was about as powerful as a fart in a hurricane.

    What you FAILED to do is recognize how hypocritical you and your Leftists are.

    Why were you leftists all hot to have the US enter The Balkans conflict when it had zero to do with our national security and it was in Europe's backyard? Why not let those brilliant Europeans handle it. They're so chit hot and intellectual about all things societal, why didn't we let them show us how it's done?

    Where were you folks when Saddam was killing a hundred people per day on average?
    Where were you folks when Saddam, who used WMD played games with UN Inspecteurs?
    Where were you folks when he kicked out the UN Inspecteurs?
    Where were you folks?

    Ahhhh... right....

    ...You folks defaulted to the UN... having sanctions put in place so it could all continue... for over a decade... and those sanctions quickly resulted in the death of 500,000 Iraqi kids and 500,000 dead adults. BUT HEY... Frau Albright stated it was... "worth the price." "... more children than died in Hiroshima..."

    A million people die swiftly, and nobody was liberated, and wouldn't be under Felonious Bill Clinton.



    Are you folks going to scream if Obama starting firing bombs into Syria... without going to Congress first.
    Are you folks going to scream when these bombs kill innocent civilians?

    What did Syria ever do to America? (To repeat a Liberal inanity).

    And... where did I say each situation isn't different? I didn't. It was your lame attempt to deflect.

    So much stupid, so little time. I will just make one brief comment that is going to make your rant look really really really stupid...I am a Gulf War vet.

    Thanks for your service, but WTF does that have to do with the hypocrisy from the Left, and my questions about whether we will see Leftists demand he go to Congress... if not will they scream, rant and call him a war monger?

    Will we see protests in the streets?

    Will we hear about the cost of such actions?

    Will we hear about how it will piss off Muslims?

    Will we hear about the leadership vacuum and who will fill it?

    Try answering the questions. You... like most leftists have a talent for deflection... as your coy little bit of chit regarding your "good deed of the day" post, and the above post illustrate.
