But most importantly of all, regime change has been a stated goal of Washington for years now, this transcends presidencies, and despite Washington's assurances yesterday that this was not about regime change, Obama stated multiple times at the beginning of the Syrian conflict, that Assad has got to go!
    I used to like McCain but lately he is worrying me. Kinda same with Graham.
    These are guys that need to worry about things like jobs in their state, not a civil war in Syria.
    I wonder why they are pushing for it, after years of tearing down Obama at every chance.
    I see a quandry, so we may have to shoot all three. LOL

    Obama didn't stay in Libya for more than 60 days, which is what the limit is under the War Powers Act.

    No, but he used the resolution to use force to protect civilians, to overthrow the Libyan government. That's what pissed off Russia and China and has been cited by some as an impeachable offense. But also, the war powers act gave a president 60 days so that he could immediately respond to a threat or attack, and then bring it to congress after the fact. We were neither threatened or attacked. But this is the way the US rolls anymore. **** the constitution, **** the rule of law, **** international law. We've got to feed the MIC.

    Actually, they do love us. Where else are they guaranteed a belly-wrenching, knee-slapping laugh on a daily basis?
