He thinks Obama should have been a belligerent and attacked president Assad anyway. That's how one thinks that has a lust for war.
    Obama hid behind the UN and Congress. He was never more relieved that he didn't get permission.

    Ever seen a Mom make his kids eat his/her vegetables by telling the child that it will make him/her strong?

    Obama's lie is the exact same thing--it's designed to keep naive individuals (i. e. the pro-war right wing) within the US pacified. That's all.

    That's a fine argument Monte has there. I'm not sure it qualifies as debate, and no one can take it seriously, but there it is.

    Bunch o' war lovers, tha lot o' ya. Just can't get enough, yum yum.

    We have a representative government. 70% of Americans said no, if you don't like that, you know what you need to do. We also have a constitution, and then there's the law of the land you like to talk about. We cannot attack countries that haven't attacked us or threatened to attack us. Much as you hate that, it is what it is.

    Obama has the authority act via The War Powers Act. It would have ben perfectly legal.

    Oh, and you need to learn what a representative government is.
