MR PRESIDENT, FOLLOW THE OATH YOU TOOK
Date posted - August 30, 2013
If my memory serves me correct, there was a former president that went to war when a country was suspect of using chemical weapons against it own people, among other reasons. WOW did he get hammered on it. He was given information on chemicals being used and stored. He then went out and got support from a large number of allies. I am in no way defending that war. The war lasted way too long and we lost more dear American soldiers than necessary!! We even had a current vice president that wanted to impeach him b/c he did not get full approval from congress. We even had a current president condemn him on his actions.
GUESS WHAT: Now we have that same vice president and president that condemend those actions going to war without congressional approval, without NATO approval, without allied approval, especially the UK. So what are we going to condemn his actions?? I say we need to leave those nations that insist on murdering their own people and thumbing their nose at humanity, to fend themselves. Does that seem callused? perhaps. I feel for those inocent people involved!! However, We no longer can be the police of the world! If this president starts a war without any backup of ANY kind, he is more crazy than I thought!! Are Americans being attached? I don’t think so. So really what are we doing? Mr. President, follow the consitution as you swore an oath to do!!!
