    Quod erat demonstrandum. What a piece of **** of a post.

    As British air crews risk their lives over Libya we foreigners have to put up with this xenophobic filth because we are not American.

    Ignore button, where are you?

    IMO Conservatives are supporting this action by 0bama but like myself have lots of problems with it. 0bama should have asked for Congressional approval. I believe he would have received it.

    I also believe for short military campaigns the President, as CIC, has the sole authority and responsibility for the use and actions of the armed forces to achieve a specific and limited objective. Panama, Haiti, Somalia, and now Libya.

    We do have separation of powers and it’s working right now.

    1) Executive: The President is CIC in accordance with the US Constitution and is well within that authority to order US armed forces into Libya. The President should seek Congressional approval before conducting military actions or shortly thereafter.

    2) Legislative: US Congress and Senate: The President must get Congressional approval in 60 days. If Congress believes the President is deploying the armed forces outside his Constitutional authority they can impeach him and send it to the Senate for trial.

    3) Judicial: The SCOTUS will judge any impeachment trial in the Senate.

    BTW, why aren't you ARealLibertarian?

    The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.
