Former president Carter on Friday came out strongly against military action in Syria without the United Nation's blessing.

Okay that’s it. This is definitely Armageddon now if Russia, Syria and Carter make more sense than our President and Secretary of State.
Yup, one anti-American moron vs another anti-American moron. I can at least take solace in the fact that although I agree with the 2nd worst President in US history that we should not intervene in Syria, I disagree with him about the reason. The UN carries zero authority. They should curl up and die. At a minimum we should evict those gelded bureaucrats from our shores.
Now, getting Congressional approval, especially when the country is so divided about this, is another matter.
You won’t believe this, but the Obama admin is going to attack Syria over being outraged by what they saw... in YouTube videos.
Jimmah, go find McCain and both of you—shut up!
Your post sums it up excellently.
Youtube with Biden at that time warning President GW not to start military action against Iran without approval from Congress. If GW did, Biden promised to start impeachment proceedings.
One might ask Joe, Why not now Joe if your Obozo Liar bombs Syria? Oh, sorry I forgot: IOKIYAD (It’s OK If You’re A Democrat).
“LOL, Carter manages to be wrong about whose authorization we need and manages to throw Obama under the bus at the same time.”

Jimmah’s suffering from senility. He thinks Bush is still President so he’s criticizing the President for going to war without the UN’s approval. He’ll shut up once his fellow Dims inform him that a Democrat is now President.
Obama threw himself under the bus with his incompetence well before Carter opened his Jew hating mouth. Carter doesn’t deserve even a bit of the credit. Carter doesn’t want to attack Syria because he’s pro Syria and anti Israel.
