    You do know.....that when Leading, sometimes it takes getting out in front. Not sitting in the back behind a desk and telling others what they need to do. When left with no other good choices. Actions speak louder than words.

    Now ISIS knows.....we are in their backyard. Just like they are in ours.
    And now we know that the US White House as usual does what it wants. **** Russia and China, **** the UN, **** the British, **** the US congress, **** your constituency. But I already knew none of that matters to warmongering neocons.

    What law would prohibit a raid of this nature?

    US forces carried out the raid. What the British parliament voted upon was again a matter of international cooperation, not a permission slip for us to go it alone.



    Congress has already authorized the use of force against ISIS. The congressional vote pertained to acitvely taking the side of Syrian separatists opposite Assad.



    Patently false. 60 percent of Americans favor the use of force in Iraq and Syria to combat ISIS, with 4 in 10 in favor of sending ground troops (not to be conflated with commandos in a raid scenario, as depicted in the OP).

    Slightly Fewer Back ISIS Military Action vs. Past Actions

    Simply a fact-free rant of a post
    Really now. They certainly shut the US down at the UN. Remember, Obama wasn't allowed to defend his red line. I never said that the British parliament was giving a permission slip or not. That was for Russia and China to do, they declined, pointing to the US's abuse of UN1973 in Libya. What the British parliament did was vote to pull their support for a UN resolution. In the summer of 14 Obama sought congressional authority to send troops into Syria, they went on vacation. Boots on the ground is boots on the ground, mission creep, period.

    A sovereign state is Well within its Right to take military action against terrorist forces that operatie against its interests, Whenever those forces are to be found.

    Repeating an erroneous statement is literally all you can muster? The UN voted on cooperative action which was promptly vetoed by Russia. The Nations in their name indicates that more than one is usually involved. They did not and cannot, however, strip the US of our ability to act in our own best interest when it comes to pursuing terror cells within Syria.

    Of course they are. Monte seems to be utterly befuddled by the concept though.

    Most certainly do. They led the charge in the destruction of Libya, too!

    Such military action requires a UN resolution. China and Russia already said no.

    Obama sought a United Nations resolution for the use of force in Syria, DENIED! He's using a back door approach. And the only reason that you guys are down with it, is because you support a US war in Syria, and are willing to look the other way on the rules.
