U.S. Cruise Missiles Preparing to Strike Syria without Congressional Approval

truther 11

The U.S. military is now moving cruise missiles into position for a possible strike against Syrian government forces, reports CBS News Saturday.

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel says that this will give the President the position to move quickly if he decides to use a cruise missile strike against Syrian government forces. Sec. Hagel goes on to say that this is not an attempt to topple the Syrian government but to send a message to President Bashar al Assad that the use of chemical weapons will not be tolerated. Hagel went on to tell reporters that U.S. commanders have prepared a range of “options” for President Obama if he chooses to proceed with military strikes against Damascus.

U.S. Cruise Missiles Preparing to Strike Syria without Congressional Approval

That statement comes on the heels of the United Nations now investigating claims that chemical weapons were used in several battles between al Assad forces and rebel forces in Syria. Among the chemicals reportedly used, sarin gas. Reuters has reported that the nerve gas attack killed hundreds this week. The Assad regime has placed the blame on al Qaeda fighters who call themselves rebels. At this point, it is unclear who was behind the use of chemical weapons. It is important to note that the “who” and “what” behind these chemical weapons has not been established.

Of course now the big question not being asked by the media, “where is the military authorization for any action against Syria?” Once again we face the serious issue of whether or not the President has the authority to unilaterally declare military action against another nation. The power to declare war does not belong to the President… any President.

At this point, however, it is not even the President who should be called out for attempting to act unilaterally against another nation. It is Congress that is once again standing by and doing nothing more than abdicating its responsibility. The Congress of the United States, and the Congress alone who holds the authority to declare war. Once again Congress will say nothing as this action is taken and merely react later.

 

The issue we face at this moment is actually bigger than the President himself acting without Constitutional authority. Congress is often called the “do-nothing Congress” and the term here certainly applies. It is the Congress that has not only the responsibility but the duty to act as the commander of U.S. forces in the Mediterranean orders Navy warships to move closer to Syria to be ready for that possible cruise missile strike. Congress has a responsibility and duty to decide if the United States will declare war against Syria. Clearly, the Syrian government has done nothing that requires the U.S. military to act to protect U.S. interests.

As I have told you the problem in Syria is dire. The situation there is much more complicated than the national media is letting on. And so far there is absolutely no indication of who is using chemical weapons the Assad regime or al-Qaeda back fighters affectionately called “rebel forces” by our media.

    Congress you had better wake the F..k up. Your powers are being usurped at what might be the cause of WW3. The Constitution says that only Congress can declare war. Not the President. Do you think the Russians are just going to sit back and allow their Ally to be attacked. We have no proof of who used chemical weapons in Syria. What good can any attack do. Only kill more civilians and release more poison gas which we will be blamed for. We have seen enough war and we have no legitimate interest in Syria. Let the UN handle this. Obama seems to want them to run the world. Well they can start with Syria.

    What’s the difference between using chemical weapons and using nuclear power? They are both weapons of mass destruction. They are both equally destructive. As far as I’m concerned, the button’s already been pushed, and it’s time to take action against those who would use it against civilians.

    If the U.S. invades Seria, it could be the start of world war 111. The Russian president stated that if the U.S. invades Seria that it would get involved. Than if Russia get involved, Iran said it would enter the conflict. The U.S. is already technically bankrupt. If the U.S. goes to war in Seria, that could be the final nail in the coffin to the U.S. economy . Wars are seldom fought over humanatarian principles, they are fought over business interest at taxpayers expense. The agenda of the Elite Globalist CABAL of the NWO is population reduction. They kill 2 birds with 1 stone. They get rid of the surplus industrial army and to the victor belongs the spoils.

    Without congressional approval ? why would that shock anyone ? Once again this criminal regime in Washington is breaking international law and NO one has the guts (any American politician) to stand up to that bastard Obama in Washington . Is there anyone internationally that can stand up to this international war thug Obama ? I can think of only one, Vladimir Putin . Ok Mr Putin time to show the west what you and Russia are made of, Can you stand up to that bully Obama ? The international Community is waiting .
