obama illegal war being wage

what a freaking joke this obama is.
going to u.n instead of going to congress

i beleive he is pushing for a new world order. and u.n is in charge of the world..

in my opinion the u.s.a congress is the only body of governemnt that allow to declared war for america

in time of importance factor the president has the right to take action to protect the u.s.a

if obama doesn't go in front of congress and tell them the action he took and be allowed to proceed with the war.. he needs to be impeached

obama is not above the law
obama can not change the law or to what every he wants to do

I recall a time not all that long ago where one political party was commonly referred to as "war monger's" by another political party... How many wars are we in now?

Where is the group of people that were not all that long ago screaming about "illegal wars"?

I for one beg the question, when are we going to bring our military heros home (from all current wars) and invest in protecting our own borders?

There will be extremists in the group and they will whip up the great unwashed into a frenzy because the US doesn't pay to rebuild every building better than it was before.

I think the UN should pay forrebuilding. Countries have put more than enough into doing the world governments dirty work.

THis is Libya but what about our covert war raging ion Yemen?

King Obama has lied from day one of his Presidential campaign. He came across as a Peace Candidate, remember? Where are we now? In 4 wars and energy independence is a fairy tale. The economy is in free-fall while the jerk is off dancing with the Queen of England.

Hurry 2012!

But we (the USA) are the main source of funding for the UN. So saying the UN should pay, is saying we should pay... I'm sick of paying for other countries.

We pay in cash, we pay in lives and blood and we pay in time as well as resources and military knowledge. Time for someone else to step up and pay the bills.
