Obama's attack on Syria will have less of a legal basis than did Bush's Iraq, so, if Syria happens, I will have lots of fun reminding the Obama-bots of this fact.

If Congress approves, how will it be less legal that W's Iraq war?

He sees the way out and he's going to take it.

However, won't that be embarassing - he said "Red line", and all that tough talk, and now he's going to get leashed by a surprisingly bipartisan Congress.

If I remember correctly, Bush had authorization to use force against Saddam Hussein from more than one UN Security Council Resolution?

Obama has nothing of the sort.

It will be unusual seeing the Democrats voting for a military action and the GOP voting against one.

It will be the Bizarro world of politics.

At least he's respecting the process instead of attempting to act in an impeachable manner. For him, that's actually progress.

He wants to strike but wants a debate and approval from congress. Props to Obama


Great way for Obama to get out of the jam he's in. He feigns and looks like he's being respectful of a Congress who he KNOWS won't authorize a strike that could end up in WWIII, and walks away from a no-win mess.

He can then dump it in the UN's hands, and it'll be a win for him across the board.

Somehow I get the feeling there still will be some token shots. Who knows. The whole ME is likely toast anyway.

Good for Obama. And the US.

The Constitution says it has to be a "Declaration of War" from Congress to go to "war", not an ad hoc authorization to use force for 10+ years.

But, Americans shouldn't give two shits what the UN says we can or cannot do.

And this has affected every POTUS since FDR in what way, exactly?

I don't think so. I have a hunch that there will be a bipartisan consensus against intervention.
