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?

Do yourself a favor, TBR. That is, before you lodge your foot deeper into your mouth. Glance at my wall and the time stamp of my post!

No, sorry, Robert is correct on this one.

The War Powers Act 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.

However, every presidents since the Act was passed in 1973 have expressed the opinion that it is unconstitutional...
