That's the part that always gets overlooked.

I am not a big fan of Obama's foreign policy.

The one question I would ask here is what is the purpose of the strike?

Are we swatting a baby on the butt when they get too close to the stove?

Are we trying to give the rebels the upper hand?

If we go through with the strike, and Syria continues using chemical weapons, what then?

Assad will do just about anything to stay in power, that's pretty obvious. And the alternative, as we have seen many times since 1989, is not optimal...

I think Obama's mistake in this case (and several others) is assuming that he was dealing with rational people. He is not.

On the other hand, we can't go around being the world's policeman...

I wouldn't want to trade places with Obama on this one...

".... provided there is ""a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces.""

Has that happened? Am I missing something?

Bill:

"Perhaps if we stopped killing people indescriminately others would also."

We the US are the single most restrained military on the face of the planet when it comes to killing people.

Every single member nation of NATO, much less any ally in Iraq would shoot with less discrease on than US soliders and almost never investiage, much less ask questions as to why the soldiers opened fire.

Word to the wise, when the South Africans say stop, wave hands... Stop and obey. They will only say it once and if you don't, your dead. US soldiers will wave, yell, we will even walk into the street to block the lane if you passed the beginning check point... Only shooting after you pass the final layer... Only after you are close enough for your IED to kill US soldiers.

No other ally nation of ours allows you to get that close.

P.S.

Our drone strikes are nothing when compared to what the French forigne legion does. There is a reason why news crews don't follow the legion.... They (the news crew) don't survive the experience unless the legion wants them to.

Just like no president since the law was passed, yet they all did it. Even St. Ronnie...

Do you read the news? Like, ever?

We're speaking about a hypothetical situation. Obama has clearly indicated that he is seeking Congressional approval. What's your damage?

That is what i was talking about,,He does not have the right to go around congress, Ofcourse he always does this but he might want to think twice about Striking Syria without Congress approval.

"The War Powers Act [of 1973] gives the President the authority to commit our armed forces, provided that he informs Congress within 48 hours, and starts to withdraw the troops within 60 days. "

.... provided there is ""a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces.""

Has that happened? Am I missing something?
