    Do you find airstrikes in Syria as legal?

    Well, ISIS does not work as a direct agent of Damascus and under its operational control.

    I didn't find the Libya airstrikes legal and I don't see these as legal either. Congress should be hauling their asses back into Washington and the President should have required authorization --- but..... this is an election year so "legal shmeagle" is acceptable.

    Why shouldn't air strikes against a clear and present enemy in a region with a failed state be legal?

    Did you listen to obama's speech at the UN today? That might clear your vision a little.

    Heya JoG. Yeah I heard....and the very same thing that he cried out about with Bush and his application of that authorization power. BO now does the same. While arguing now why he feels he can make such a call. So while before it was okay that he dump on another for his use of authorization.....now its a different story when it is himself. See how that works for BO peep.

    He didn't say he requires Congressional approval - so no it doesn't clear anything up unfortunately.

    Nothing has been proven to be a clear and present danger. If anything it's murky and unknown. Hardly adequate.

    Deeply pondering the situation I realized that not one world leader sought my opinion... as if my opinion doesn't matter. So in full rebel mode, I announce...., I really don't give a damn!

    The U.S. admin is so far beyond inept there is not a properly descriptive term for it's malfeasance. This admin appears to base actions solely upon expected U.S political results.

    No.

    But tell me, how does a speech by a guy who lied 44 times about health care to get elected make legal what has no basis in law?

    Look, Barack Obama is the president. He SIGNS legislation, he does not declare it by edict and teleprompter, his words are not law, thay are in fact suspect bull**** based on the composite of all his speeches.

    I prefer one of the ones where he tore into Bush for Iraq myself, the parallels are pretty solid.

    Libya was illegal that turned out badly, yet more lies by the speech maker in chief about ANOTHER illegal attack is not going to make it legal no matter how much you worship this incompetent blow hard.

    Re: Do you find airstrikes in Syria as legal?

    I noticed that these latest air strikes were claimed to be meant, at least in part, to ward off an imminent danger from a plot in its final stages. That was designed to give President Obama colorable authority to attack Syria. He doesn't want to rally the country behind a war on these jihadists and then go before Congress to ask for its authorization, as a real leader and statesman would do. He doesn't want to take the fall if things go very wrong, so when he does take the lead, as he did Monday, he carefully limits the size of the action. Those gruesome executions finally forced President Pinprick to act, after he had sat and watched this mess develop for a year and more. He wants to do just enough to look like he's doing something, whether it helps this country much or not.
