With navy ships on standby in the Mediterranean Sea ready to launch their cruise missiles, Obama said that he had decided the U.S. should take military action and that he believes that as commander in chief, he has “the authority to carry out this military action without specific congressional authorization.”
At the same time, he said, “I know that the country will be stronger if we take this course and our actions will be even more effective.”

Comment: A civil war in Syria does not constitute an immediate threat to the safety and security of the U.S. so Mr. Obama-Nation of Desolation as spoken of by the profit Daniel is incorrect, he doesn't have the authority under the constitution to take unilateral military action or even do it in concert with allies! This situation is at best precarious! With the various powers aligned as they are, this does have the potential to spark a much wider if not global, perhaps even nuclear, war.
This is not the kind of leadership the world needs right now and his running to congress for cover in this case is just an indication of the man's cowardice. He knows that with the allies chickening out at the last minute, he doesn't have the cover he needs nor the guts to do this on his own. He got caught with his pants down, can't get his way, doesn't have the courage to take the heat for his own mistakes and is looking for someone or something else to cover his fully exposed and totally incompetent "six O'clock!"
This coward has screwed things up enough already. With all the other criminal (treasonous) activity going on in the U.S., it's long past time for congress to do their job and not just "consider" articles of impeachment, it's time they drafted and pushed them forward for a vote! It's time for the adults in the room to either step up to the plate or get out of the way so we can put a stop to this madness! This may be our last best chance to do something to save the country and quite possibly the world without resorting to violence or a revolution!
God help us and have mercy on us all!!!
