    My point is clear. The War powers act does not authorize a President to use military force without approval of congress except in cases where the the military force is in direct response to an attack on the United States. Obama is doing the right thing.

    Almost. Since Syria hasn't attacked us, hasn't presented any imminent threat to attack us, there's no point in asking congress for approval.

    Personally, I don't think that we SHOULD attack Syria. However, under the war powers act, The United States can attack a country with approval from congress. A President just cannot make the unilaterally decision to do so.

    However, as we have seen with Libya and Obamacare, BHO will follow only those laws which suit him and ignore those which don't.
