You must be confusing him with GW. Of course, it wasn't for no reason. Over 5k US servicemen died so George and Dick could funnel billions in no bid government contracts to Halliburton and their other politically connected friends. But asking Congress to approve launching a few Tomahawks is exactly the same. But keep licking that old money blue blooded azz
You haven't read Obama's request to Congress or you would KNOW he is requesting permission to engage in full combat war with Syria.

It is total idiocy to use Israel as an excuse for Obama's poor judgement in getting us in this position.

President Teleprompter decided to go off script and play cowboy with his red line nonsense.

<quoted text>ped-o-philes such as urself love war when their nobel peace prize winning mooslim supports war, eh?
Here's hoping Congress does a little refresh homework, and does NOT let the amped up war mongering, wanna be missile lobbing jack aye's just cut loose on clueless heartstrings of libuhrulTic bleeding terrorist sympathizing and/or the hype of cowboy glory days dreams, and deplete or exhaust our military resources to extinction.
Especially being as the situation has already been screwed up enough.

With Sooo many SHIPS full of BOOTS of American lives in place ALREADY-Congress DOES needs to stand up and DEMAND some GROUND RULES and Regulations in this game of battleships in the faces of. Two years ago (upon the invasion of LIBYA) would've been better, but better late than never.

Of SALT I, SALT II, START and the-

Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty

Officially Treaty Banning Nuclear Weapons Tests in the Atmosphere, in Outer Space and Under Water

Treaty that prohibits all tests of nuclear weapons except those conducted underground. U.S.-Soviet test-ban talks began after concerns arose in the 1940s and '50s about the dangers of radioactive fallout from above-ground nuclear tests. These talks made little progress until the Cuban missile crisis of 1962. In the following year, Britain, the U.S., and the Soviet Union signed the treaty, and more than 100 other governments soon followed. France and China were notable nonsignatories. In 1996 the treaty was replaced by the Comprehensive Test-Ban Treaty, which will not take effect until it is signed by all 44 countries with nuclear power plants. India refuses to do so on the ground that the treaty lacks disarmament provisions and permits nonexplosive testing. See also Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty.
*Notable references of question: WHO has NOT signed onto this treaty.


If there was any arms race in the region, India has won it, at whatever the cost may be. But the claims to have good neighbourly relations, with MFN-status, no-war pact or no-first-use nuclear arsenal are just a dream seemingly never to come true.

In April this year India yanked open the door of the exclusive ICBM (International Ballistic Missile) club with the first test of Agni-V. Now, if DRDO is to be believed, India has quietly gate-crashed into an even more exclusive club of nuclear-tipped submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs). The most ironic part of this achievement on part of India is that New Delhi had been able to successfully keep it as a secret ‘black project’.

The annual awards function of the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) the other day witnessed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh handing over the “technology leadership award” to a scientist, A K Chakrabarti, of the Hyderabad-based DRDL lab, for the “successful development” of the country’s first SLBM. This capability has been acquired only by four nations, the US, Russia, France and China.

Here are the 46 U.S. senators (44 Democrats, 2 Independents) who had voted to surrender our Constitutional rights to the UN. Note that there is not a single Republican among the 46 traitors, so don’t tell me there’s not a wit of difference between the two parties!

Definitely one or the other

At best-That's good old POLITICS....of the THUG and LYING, war mongering entitleMentalcase mentality.

And that it awrl Bushes fault mouthing of nothing but rabid wolf DUNG, needs to be shoved back down your own throat of putrid hypcocrisy.

It's time for the CURRENT admin to STOP continually LYING through it's teeth about what it's been doing for some time now (Libya, BENGHAZI, the IRS debaucle etc etc ) and tell the American public the TRUTH for a change.

The best we can hope for now, is that this cowboy-kid hollyweird and whineduhm type acting prezidink hasn't been dividing the brains that be when it comes to protecting America, because he sure has it all ramped up and America has the RIGHT to know just exactly what is are his flipping battle plans, short term AND long.
HE might think he's "in control" of the world, but the GROWN UPS all over it know better!!!!!!!!!!

Pull your head out of your stinking racist race baiting, hypocritical kkkhunt of Ignorance, you jackboot licking brainless parasite-and face the TRUTH of REALITY, and stop LYING to yourself for a hopey-changey, you jackbootlicking bobblehead twit.

Quick FACTS: US and the Libya invasion (9/2/2013;

An American F-15 fighter jet has crashed in Libya amid growing criticism against the U.S. presence in the oil-rich North Africa country both from within and outside the United States.

The U.S. joined a coalition of western forces led by France in enforcing the UN Security Council Resolution 1973, which calls for a ban on all flights in the country’s airspace — a no-fly zone — and tightened sanctions on the regime of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and its supporters.


Adopting UNSC Resolution 1973 by a vote of 10 in favor to none against, with 5 abstentions the Council authorized Member States, acting nationally or through regional organizations or arrangements, to take all necessary measures to protect civilians under threat of attack in the country.

There were no opposing votes on the 15-member council, but China, Russia, Germany, India and Brazil abstained. Germany said it was concerned about a protracted military conflict. CNN

The United States and its allies have run into some criticism for the intensity of the firepower unleashed on Libya.

And political debate is growing on the international stage about how far UN authorization allows air strikes to go.

US President Barack Obama says the U.S. is looking forward to withdrawing its forces from Libya and handing over responsibility to foreign forces.

"But, obviously, our military is already very stretched and carries large burdens all around the world. And whenever possible for us to be able to get international cooperation -- not just in terms of words, but also in terms of planes and pilots and resources -- that's something that we should actively seek and embrace, because it relieves the burden on our military and it relieves the burden on U.S. taxpayers to fulfill what is an international mission and not simply a U.S. mission," he said.

Robert Gates: No-fly zone not ‘wise’

Before the no-fly zone was adopted, a number of senior U.S. officials including Defense Secretary Robert Gates warned about the consequences of such a decision. NY Times

Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates warned Congress earlier in the March that even a more modest effort to establish a no-flight zone over Libya would have to begin with an attack on the country’s air defenses and would require “a big operation in a big country.” NY Times

"This is not a question of whether we or our allies can do this. We can do it," Gates told reporters aboard his plane after a visit to Bahrain. "The question is whether it's a wise thing to do and that's the discussion that's going on at a political level," he said. Times of India

O'bama wanted Israel to go back to the 1967 borders--it is obvious why O'bama wants regime change in Syria.

Because when one stands justly in the center, one better be standing RIGHT-NOT wrong.

It's a requirement of having some traits of actual ETHICS, INTEGRITY, decency and some morality.
