    Everyone of your "ilk" in Congress fancies themselves as a "Chief". You have no Indians. Sen. McCain bemoaned this "fact" today.

    How about Obama and Boehner get a room, then they can own each other?

    Goes to show you that the Neocons still have a voice in the Republican Party, but the biggest freakin' Neocon of them all is Obama. Although Republicans generally get the blame for the Neocons, the Democrats have also had their fair share. Zbignew Brzinsky (sp?) was a Democrat and more of a Neocon than most Republicans. And Obama has surpassed him too.

    That's because it was the rebels who gassed the Syrian people in a false flag operation. America is now supposed to swoop in and install Al-Qaeda and replace Assad. That's McCain and Congress' plan.

    ^ In other words, Obama wants to attack Syria because Syria attacked Syria.

    Our politicians have been using the word "intervention" too much in the past 10 years.

    Your constitution is only as powerful and as weak as the citizens of your country allow it to be. If the President, and the congress, agree that attacking Syria or any other country is a preemptive or defensive strike to protect the US, who's going to challenge that decision? Are you or someone else going to take the government to court? Do you think the Supreme Court would overrule congress and the President when it comes to national defense?

    In my view, the only time that happens is if the President and congress disagreed.
