Pat Buchanan: Congress Should Veto Obama's War
 Part of channel(s): Syria (current event)

-

“Congress doesn't have a whole lot of core responsibilities,” said Barack Obama last week in an astonishing remark.

For in the Constitution, Congress appears as the first branch of government. And among its enumerated powers are the power to tax, coin money, create courts, provide for the common defense, raise and support an army, maintain a navy and declare war.

But, then, perhaps Obama’s contempt is justified.

For consider Congress’ broad assent to news that Obama has decided to attack Syria, a nation that has not attacked us and against which Congress has never authorized a war.

Why is Obama making plans to launch cruise missiles on Syria?

According to a “senior administration official … who insisted on anonymity,” President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons on his own people last week in the two-year-old Syrian civil war.

  • All Questions that MUST BE ASKED and ANSWERED !!

    Of course they wont be ... it's top secret ...

    USA economy is in shambles, 80% of the jobs created in the last 4 years are part time, standard of living falling monthly, millions on the dole and growing weekly ....

    This is going to end very badly for everyone on the planet ....

  • "Congress doesn't have a whole lot of core responsibilities"

    Drafting budgets and arranging national defence are kind of big responsibilities....

    I like Buchanan. He's an old-school conservative. You don't see many around, these days. They're almost all warhawks bought and paid for by Israel, anymore.

    (No, that wasn't an anti-Israel comment, before some yahoo jumps on my ass for it)

    • @Ashoori5 He was destroyed politically after standing up to AIPAC and the zio-puppets, actually. Which should automatically tell you he's a good man and has America's interest at heart.

      He'll never be President, of course ;)

    • @Lapsz Politicians don't give a flying fuck about america. All they care about is themselves and what they can get for free.

  • So you're saying congress is not corrupt but Obama is. Got it.

  • congress should grow some balls and veto Obama's endless war. Barack Warmonger, our president.

    This bleeding heart liberal is a war-president. He hasn't acted one time towards peace, only war, and new, cool ways to make war. He's a killer, and fascinated by new ways to kill other people.

    Actual military people respect duty, and respect life. Our president can't relate to military people, or any people who have ever had a job, because our president has never filled either of those roles More..

  • Great post from "ZH Snob" over @ zerohedge:

    "The only thing the USA can manufacture anymore is war. We run a world-wide death machine, thinking we can continue to foist our failing currency on the world.

    But the leaks are showing more every day. By the time the rest of the world gets out from under the petrol$, we as a nation and a people will be the most reviled ever. That is when the war machine will be forced to return home and having no one else to pick on will begin More..

  • During the Vietnam war all of the blacks violently protested because they felt that a white president was sending the blackman in droves to fight the white mans war. So can we white men protest violently now because a black man is sending the whites in droves to fight a black mans war? Keep in mind the military is 100% volunteer force which means is primarily white.

  • Fact that the west is seeking action outside the security council, yet again. Shows the west's contempt for the entire purpose that org. was founded upon. Boot us out or close up shop it's a waste of $$. No consequenes, no lesson learnt. Rogue acts of phyisical interventionshould be made a criminal act or else it will continue to invalidate the UN.

  • You could use the same argument when Bush was President and he started Iraq. This is just a political articel. Also, the GOP passed a law that lets the President do this. It was passed so Bush could invade Iraq. I know the Dems voted for it.

  • Lets not forget that Obama is a black fucking MUSLIM. His agenda is clear. Assad and his regime do NOT support the muslim brotherhood. The FSA dies.

    Israel is exempt from this. I doubt they want any part in a war that will crown a jew hating muslim extremist as the king of a sovereign nation.

    What in the FUCK...is going on???
