    We would hope not. Much of the reason Obama was elected was to angle away from military engagements.

    Just trying to let China know that the USA is ready, willing, and able to kick its ass.

    If they need some more info about what I'm talking about they can talk with Saddam Hussein or Usama bin Laden.

    Americans who support the constitution, prefer our presidents obtain a declaration of war before committing our troops unilaterally. That's what Obama was elected for, though he's used our troops more than we would have liked at this point.

    The War Powers Act is constitutional.

    The one designed for a presidents use in the event of imminent threat of attack or actual attack? The one that has been abused so often to commit our troops to folly, that one?

    I doubt taking on China however could be compared to taking on OBL or SH.

    Wouldn't China attacking the U.S. be like McDonald's attacking their customers?
