Obama cannot launch any war because he received the Nobel Prize for Peace after he did...nothing so it would look really bad if a Nobel Prize Laureate would declare war on anybody at any time and do not forget, they told us we are “war weary”. That is why he is ignoring the scared Israelis request to declare some kind of line in the sand with Iran. Defending the US and her Western allies goes against the very grain of Barry's existence, against the very fiber of his being so, sit tight folks, we are heading for tough times...

I don’t know about an act of war, but I think the intel was there these attacks were going to happen. But Obama was so looking forward to his meeting with that Limp Pimp, you know, the one that “introduced” Barry to his wife, that Obama skipped the intelligence briefing (first time EVER).

With Americans murdered, and Obama doing nothing to help, I would say he is complicit in their murders.

In that case, your delay is justifiable. ;-)

Obama would be in a fix, since he isn’t a real POTUS he cannot declare war.

"Declaration of War" is a function allocated to Congress, per Article I Section 8 of the Constitution.

Hillary Clinton boast on Gaddafi: 'We came, we saw, he died'...

Now look at what we have.

Can't you just smell the fresh blooming flowers, hear the colorful birds singing, and feel the warmth of the new, shining sun? Thank goodness Oboma and Hillary bought us this new and wonderful Muslim spring. Before their brilliant policies, all we had over there were uneducated, radical, inhumane, blood thirsty killers. My, how things have cha...............never mind.

The house should immediately initiate authorization for President Obama to respond militarily to these attacks. I don’t believe they need to wait for the president to come to them.

Yes but we are at war and have been at war with radical Islam. Its amazing to me how many folks on both the left and right can not conceive of the fact that this is a fight to the death we win or they win.

There is no taking our ball and going home...

We ( or any nation ) can declare war, but on whom?

This appears to be a well organized gang, no one that I know of has said that this is state sponsored (or by Egypt, Libya, Iran, etc.). We we have information that it was sponsored by a nation, then let’s roll.

We did not declare war on Germany during the Reagan administration when the disco in Germany was bombed.

I hate to say this, but it’s like they critique that the gang is attacking a US installation because a couple of people within the US produced a movie they don’t like.

The fault here lies in our President and his team. If we stood strongly for freedom, and the gangs knew we would find them and kill them, this would not be happening.

If authorized by the appropriate military channels (i.e., from the head of state, or someone legitimately acting on behalf of the head of state), yes, this would be an “act of war.” As it stands, it was most likely a “crime.”

Depends on your definition of “crime”.

To me, it was a crime against the USA and its citizens.

To the Community Organizer-in-Chief: the crime against the USA was justified by a ‘crime’ against one of the religions of the world.

'If we stood strongly for freedom, and the gangs knew we would find them and kill them, this would not be happening.'

That one is debatable. Unfortunately, the US is no longer Superman. With Iraq and Afghanistan we now have a version of kryptonite. Throw in Reagan pulling out the Marines in Beirut.

Once the illusion of invincibility is cracked, it can no longer be put back together. Once the commitment of putting troops in harms way and then having them get killed, it creates a confidence to the local populace.

The muslim commons can fight a form of guerrilla war trans countries and the US is helpless to stop it.

An act of war is anything the nation on the receiving end is willing to go to war over. We don’t live in the middle ages, when you needed a “Casus Belli” anymore.

“The muslim commons can fight a form of guerrilla war trans countries and the US is helpless to stop it.”

We’re not helpless to stop it. Helpless would imply that we have no means available to stop it. We have the means, we simply don’t have the will to use those means. So, a better description might be, we are too spineless to stop it.
