    Yeah, how DARE the President respect the Constitution of the United States and the fact that war can only be declared by the Congress, and military intervention only when authorized or in a situation of imminent peril. That Kenyan Commie!

    At this point the indications are the American citizens do not want another war.

    At this point the indications are the congress of the USA is going to war anyhow.
    .
    This really sucks, I hope for just this once folks will remember on election day, no matter what else their politician did.

    Saudi’s are leading-Obama-from-behind. Obama couldn’t use the UN to lead-from-behind. BO couldn’t use NATO to lead-from-behind. So, the President will try to use Congress to lead-from-behind.

    NO! We should stay out of the civil war in Syria. We got badly stung by the civil war in Vietnam 45 years ago.

    what i find interesting is just a week or so ago, people in congress were suggesting that Obama do something about Syria.

    If president Obama wants to do the same as we did in Libya in Syria with Congress blessing at this time, then that would not be too bad. Just as long as there are NO boots on the ground, (perhaps using Israeli boots?) then I can see Congress even giving him approval. But a full grown war such as Iraq? No way!!!!

    ‘Can you please explain why you guys can’t agree with Obama when he does exactly what you’ve been screaming and crying you wanted him to do?’

    It’s a lot like when Sarah Palin was complaining that the ‘lame stream media’ was distorting her words — by quoting her verbatim.

    I believe it was John Kerry who has already set the bar on this one by stating that even if congress says no to military action in Syria , the prez can go it alone because he is constitutionally empowered. I have no doubt at this point that we will attack Syria , not because of poison gas or national security but because of words and the interpretation of them." Red line" , two simple words that may cost us billions of dollars and untold lives. The United States Constitution and the war powers act , more words that can be interpreted several different ways – just ask several members of congress or the media. Semantics , we will fight this war on SEMANTICS!

    The artist is familiar, I presume, with the etching of the great French satirist Daumier, who did a cartoon with 2 generals standing outside the “Ministry of Disarmament”, both using essentially the same quote as in this cartoon.
