1. Obama can't go to war in Syria because they are bankrupting the military.
2. Obama can't go to war in Syria without congressional approval, according to Obama in 2008 speech when he was Senator.
3. Biden will move to impeach the president who goes to war without Congressional approval, which has no intent on being a danger to the US or her assets. At least he would when Bush was President.
