Cue the well-worn chorus: "Oh noes! It is going to be a QUAGMIRE! Teh new Viet-NAM!!"

On the one hand, you have Bush get congressional approval, but failed to get UN resolution for force, and the libs can't stand it.
On the other hand, Obama gets UN approval but doesn't ask congress, and the libs are furious.
Both are moral and legal. Bush has congressional approval and doesn't need a UN resolution. Obama gets the UN but no congress. The War Powers Act supports Obama's actions. Congressional Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002 completely bypasses the provisions in the War Powers Act regarding executive privilege.
Wait, I thought the Arab League was all about this.
