The War Powers Act doesn’t allow a president to use force absent authorization from Congress unless there is a “national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces”— a threshold Syria simply does not meet. If Assad’s forces shoot at our ships offshore, Obama can rain hell down upon him, but absent that “national emergency,” he has to go to Congress.

Except if he is Obama the Omnipotent.

Obama has made it very clear that he will not put boots on the ground. I don't think he could possibly make it any clearer.
Obama: "This is not Iraq. This is not Afghanistan"...it is "proportional, it is limited, it does not involve boots on the ground." You are clueless.
Kerry fudged on this issue in his testimony today.

Kerry also made it clear that regime change is the objective of intervention, not ust chemical weapons.

Duh!!! A nuclear reactor is not a nuclear weapon.
There is a huge difference between providing China with the technology involved in producing nuclear power and the technology necessary to produce nuclear weapons. Educate yourself for pete's sake.
The technology for producing nuclear weapons is widely known. The key element is the ability to produce fissionable material.

Kerry's testimony appears to be..

We aren't asking for a War Declaration because it is not a war war. It's a foreign relations save face work relation solution.
