Seems like just a few years ago we all heard the Anti-Bush War slogans chanting from every corner of Liberal America...
Slogans like:
Save America, Spare Iraq, Make Texas Take Him Back

Has Anyone Seen Our Constitution Lately?

We Have Guided Missiles And Misguided Men

One nation under surveillance.

Smart weapons, Dumb president.

I particularly like the "One Nation under Surveillance" one... That was when they THOUGHT the Government was listening to phone calls.. Today
we KNOW not only are they listening to phone calls on everyone but ALSO our EMAILS so... where is the outrage from the left...? Cue Crickets.
Oh that's right they are in charge now so.....

Now just 8 short years later the Dogs of War are howling at another Country. A Country by the way that has NOT attacked us AND does not threaten our National Security.

We also hear the calls of WMD's we see the evidence of them on TV right? So haven't we already seen this movie? Was it not the Democrat Party almost to a person, voted for the War before they voted against it over WMD's?

Was it not the Democrats who screamed that Bush had no Constitutional authority to unilaterally commit troops on his own?

Joe Biden wrote:

“I was chairman of the Judiciary Committee for 17 years or its
ranking member. I teach separation of powers in Constitutional law. This
is something I know. So I got together and brought a group of
Constitutional scholars together to write a piece that I’m going to
deliver to the whole Unites States Senate pointing out the President has
no Constitutional authority to take this nation to war against a
country of 70 million people unless we’re attacked or unless there is
proof that we are about to be attacked. And if he does, if he does, I
would move to impeach him. The House obviously has to do that, but I
would lead an effort to impeach him. The reason for my doing that, and I
don’t say it lightly, I don’t say it lightly….”

I wonder if our Vice President is going to push for President Obama's impeachment.

Maybe our President should just impeach himself...

Barrack Obama wrote:

The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.

Of course all this was said way back when Bush was President now they are in power so of course this is different.

"Item, qe nul soit si hardy de crier havok sur peine davoir la test coupe."

"Cry Havoc and let slip the dogs of War...."
Blood and destruction shall be so in use
And dreadful objects so familiar
That mothers shall but smile when they behold
Their infants quarter'd with the hands of war;
All pity choked with custom of fell deeds:
And Caesar's spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war;
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.

So let men die.. Their blood be spilled.
To feed the Dogs.. their bellies filled.
I hear drums the sounds are a falling
On many a deaf ear the Dog’s calling.

Obama willing to go it alone...

"Responding to the vote, the White House said that a decision on a possible military strike against Syria will be guided by America's best interests, suggesting the U.S. may act alone if other nations won't help."

UK citizens and Parliament gave their Prime Minister a resounding NO on going to War. While our President vows to go it alone even if no one else will help...

Now what was it I heard from the Democrats about then President Bush HAVING to have a coalition from our Allies and if he tried to go it alone they would impeach him?

Keep our military out of further intrusion in the Middle East

Mr. Bush was wrong to send brave Americans into the Middle East without any strategic exit strategy, and Mr. Obama is equally in error. Governments and insurgencies that base their ideology on religion deserve no assistance from free nations (look only to Egypt for confirmation). President Obama is foolish to be drawn into an Islamic quagmire with no end game. I wish that the USA was as wise as is the UK on this foreign policy decision.

The Iraq War

The grief of too many families is multiplied when one realizes that our loved ones were sent into harms way on reportedly false information. We do need to know who/what used chemicals on civilians. That type of evil could be used on American civilians. It must be stopped. Is this the Atom Bomb scenario of the past?

War Planning

I have been a war planner. If you're going to issue some sort of ultimatum to another country (like if you do this you will cross my redline and I will act),first you must decide what it is that you will do if that "red line" is crossed. Then you have the military make plans to do that, you gather all the necessary permissions to do that (from whoever is necessary) and then if that line is crossed, you execute without further notice. What we are having to endure is just another example of amateurism from the current administration. How pitiful.

When do we post that "Mission Accomplished" banner?

Agreee completely, Gym. Good planning means planning middle and the end as well as the beginning. This President has shown us he only has the ability to campaign using a criticize-others approach. Here again, we have the most dangerous person in the White House, Valerie Jarrett, pulling the President's chain about backing up his "Red-line" comments for stupid political pandering. Makes as much sense as him whining about "Rush Limbaugh won't let me". My God, it is like having Haddix in the White House.

I do think the Brits running it by Parliment and getting a thumbs down might focus the press on why Obama isn't doing the same thing before acting. And they should also be focused on why he's telling the world what his plans are ahead of time.

Of course Syria has done the same thing - if we attack them, they are going after Israel. Not entirely logical, but Israel unleashed would be something to behold. They don't fight wars like we do. I see them going right to nukes which has a tremendous downside for all involved, but you can bet the guy with the neck will be long gone. Israel might even go after North Korea for supplying Syria weapons.
Then the US puts tons of money into the region for renovation and nation-building only to eventually leave and let the Muslim Brotherhood (our new ally using the enemy of my enemy argument) and Al-Quida take over. Then we come back a decade or two later and act surprised they are not good little American clones. Haven't we done that before somewhere? I seem to remember ......, no maybe not, that would be really stupid to repeat the same mistakes.

Morgan & Syria

See Sect A, back page of today's AJC--both Thomas Friedman & Charles Krauthammer wrote good columns on Syria.

How some of our allies

see this.

Obama could not get a consensus to go out to dinner with 10 strangers whom he invites and offers to pay their meals and give a ride in the presidential limo to get there.

Obama and his leadership

This is a list of O-bombs that have defined what leadership does NOT consist of:
