A Little Less Talk and a Lot More Action
I realize that there is no easy road in Syria. However, the United States Constitution makes the President the Commander in Chief of the military, not Congress…for good reason. Because war by committee is a recipe for disaster. If he thinks that talk is the solution, then he might as well just take the military option back off of the table.
Or just let the U.N. handle it. Their good at talk.
By his own admission, the President has established that what is being considered is a limited military action, not a declaration of war. That should not involve Congress.
He should decide what he is going to do and then do it and Congress should shut up.
All this talk, debate and disclosure does is reveal intelligence ways and means and limit the effectiveness of whatever action he does do, military or otherwise.
