    What do you think?
    No, and that's why they didn't start a war yet.

    Under the assume of potential or possible attacks every country could do the same.

    However, the airstrikes are really necessary, based on what ISIS is. (that's for the morale side)
    But, what is US giving to the world as example by ignoring the international tools.

    What would we say if Russia or China would follow the same example.

    "He is the first president in American history repeatedly to use the military without even asking for Congressional authorization," said Napolitano.

    Well ...... when Congress prohibited further funding to the Contras in Nicaragua, Reagan continued the funding through arms sales that were also prohibited by Congress.
    I think Reagan had more balls of steel. Even tho it resulted bad for US.

    I've been doing a lot of pondering as well which has resulted in anger, disgust, and frustration. The poll asked if we thought the airstrikes in Syria were legal. Whether one supports them or not, what happened to asking Congress for approval? Criticism of the air strikes is bipartisan, ranging from concern over mission creep to waging war unilaterally. I asked myself how much more we can ask of the military and the taxpayers without Congress having a debate? But instead, Obama waited till Congress recessed to wage an air war in Syria. Was it politically driven so as to not have any members of Congress within his own party on record of a vote just before a mid-term election? Me thinks so. Radical Islamic terrorists are threatening to cause the collapse of our country. President Obama seems confused about the nature of the threat. It's obvious in his previous decisions in regard to Iraq and other engagements, his desire to gut the military budget in regard to aircraft and ammunitions prior to waging an air war is feckless, his complete fecklessness in refusing to secure our borders or reforming our visa programs and allowing those citizens who engaged in fighting along ISIS to freely re-enter this country on their passports is someone who is clueless. Yes I damn well care cause the next victims of these bastards may be me, my neighbor, a loved one.....all because of asinine decisions made in the name of politics with no end game in sight while making all of us less safe.

    Actually, Vesper, I care. I'm tired of this admin; it is becoming obvious that all decisions are based upon U.S. political outcome. Political party before country; not something new but finely honed by the admin presently in office.

    We get what we deserve. A majority put those folk there.

    Celebrate something good

    Exactly Obama does not make a move that does does affect his political leanings.

    Using that logic - we should be on high alert 100% of the time since 2001. We're not - why do you think? Should we wait until ISIS kills a few thousand people? Yes. I also think that Congress should vote on using the military before they are used. I think this is illegal just like Libya was illegal (and didn't Libya work out oh so well too?)
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
