    Not that being on the side of a dictator is much preferable of a choice.

    The only correct option here is to stay out...

    The war powers act does not support your position. In fact it flies squarely in the face of your position. The war powers act was written to check the president's power to commit the United States to an armed conflict without the consent of Congress. The President can send U.S. armed forces into action abroad only by declaration of war by Congress, "statutory authorization," or in case of "a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces."

    My ConLaw professor Ed Firmage is one of the most renowned scholars on the War Powers Act and the author of "To Chain the Dog of War" which indepthly talks about the history of the War Powers act.

    Yes, of course it will. Americans have been allowing presidents to violate our laws for so long now, hell, so many don't know or don't care (as can be seen here on this board) what the constitution has to say on this subject.

    Why is there not more concern about who used the gas. Forget War Powers, coalition, joint resolutions, and acknowledge that the fat wallets of Saudi Arabia are financing the rebels and stop giving substance to the assertion that the Syrian people are revolting. CIA intrigue, Saudi intrigue, al Queda intrigue, Israeli intrigue and a nice controlled press to make sure you don't wake up from the story line to reality. We all gonna play "Who Do You Trust?" None of the above. The USA must support the Saudis so that the Saudis don't decide to price OIL in a denomination other than US Dollars. That would bankrupt the US of A. We always support the Israelis because of the strong political influence of AIPAC. The CIA financed and armed al Queda and looks like they still do. If not one of the players is trustworthy, the issue should be moot. Let's send Assad a shipload of food and some medical supplies and a thank you card for allowing millions of Iraqis refuge when our chaos, destruction, death, and misery drove them from their homes and country and into Syria.
