    Yes, I noticed you are spreading this statement even before. That is not why I come here. I come here to give you my opinion.

    But do not think that Dardania would leave you alone should you choose to intervene? The foreign ministry asked for an intervention. I suppose the government would now put effort where their words were.

    So in the roundabout way the soldiers whom are volunteers alone here (i.e., not drafted) may be involved anyhow.

    Well, a long dead guy and two fictitious guys, no I don't suppose. However, what would be so difficult about following established protocol?

    You want the POTUS to follow the will of the UN? Or to guess the will of the American people? Or wait for Congress to lay an egg? What if, after all the protocols have been followed, Congress decides in favour of military intervention, but France, the UK and whoever else is already mopping up? Who's asking for effective leadership then?

    Grand! The UN doesn't have it's own will. Our constitution doesn't accommodate attacking countries that haven't harmed us. Parking ships off the coast of Syria and firing cruise missiles at them is a provocation equal to an act of war on a country that hasn't offended us. How is it you could find this defendable?

    It isn't. We had 9/11 after all the cruise missiles Clinton used.
