LOL !!! Is that the best you can do ?
Your'e the one that needs help, desperate help. For some reason your BLOG doesn't mention any of the Democrats I listed in my last post. You remember ? The PROMINENT Democrats that said Saddam HAD WMD, and had been hiding them throughout IRAQ ? The same democrats that gave Bush LEGAL Authorization to use force ??
If your'e going to devolve down into Conspiracy theories then quit wasting my time and others. We have a section in this forum explicitly for Conspiracy theories.
Go peddle your nonsense over there. This section of the Forum is reserved for adults.

The "prominent Democrats" were misinformed since they were LIED to by the Bush Administration.....but these are the GOP's war crimes of the past ....now we have an unprecedented and treasonous letter to Iran as well....The GOP has caused more destruction and pursued more reckless tactics than Bin Laden could have ever imagined.

two-thirds vote in the Senate. Only after the Senate approves the treaty can the President ratify it. Once a treaty is ratified, it becomes binding on all the states under the Supremacy Clause. While the United States House of Representatives does not vote on it at all, the requirement for Senate advice and consent to ratification makes it considerably more difficult in the US than in other democratic republics to rally enough political support for international treaties. Also, if implementation of the treaty requires the expenditure of funds, the House of Representatives may be able to block, or at least impede, such implementation by refusing to vote for the appropriation of the necessary funds.
In the US, the President usually submits a treaty to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee (SFRC) along with an accompanying resolution of ratification or accession. If the treaty and resolution receive favorable committee consideration (a committee vote in favor of ratification or accession) the treaty is then forwarded to the floor of the full U.S. Senate for such a vote. The treaty or legislation does not apply until it has been ratified. A multilateral agreement may provide that it will take effect upon its ratification by less than all of the signatories. Even though such a treaty takes effect, it does not apply to signatories that have not ratified it. Accession has the same legal effect as ratification. Accession is a synonym for ratification for treaties already negotiated and signed by other states. An example of a treaty to which the U.S. Senate did not advise and consent to ratification is the Treaty of Versailles, which failed to garner support due to inclusion of the Covenant of the League of Nations.
The U.S. can also enter into international agreements by way of executive agreements. These are not made under the Treaty Clause, and do not require ratification of two thirds of the Senate. "Congressional-executive agreements" are passed by a majority of both houses of Congress as a regular law. If the agreement is completely within the President's constitutional powers, it can be made by the President alone without Congressional approval; however, it will have the force of an executive order and can be unilaterally revoked by a future President. All of these types of agreements are treated internationally as "treaties". See Foreign policy of the United States#Law.
