We helped create the beast, we accepted the terms and the UN Charter is "the law of the land". So, while we can pass all the authorizations we care to, that authorization will be a violation of US Law - I could care less about "international law" - and our soldiers would be operating under illegal orders.
So, if Obama is REALLY serious, he needs to quit the UN and renounce the charter. I hope he remembers though that NATO is only required to aid us if we are not the aggressor - me thinks we would be awfully alone. No JF'nK, France doesn't count.
There’s no published evidence, that I’m aware of, the Syrian govt was responsible for the gas attack. And it doesn’t make sense for the Syrian govt to gas people. Such an action delegitimizes a govt that is clearly not interested in making more international enemies.
I’m in no way defending the bastard govt. Syria has clearly violated its citizens — recall the news about the boy that was publicly castrated and burned alive.
Now back to Benghazi and Egypt.
