Well ya know... its been a loophole in the constitution that Presidents have abused since at least just after WWII... Obama didn't really start this lol

Yes and no, presidents have initiated conflicts BEFORE congress has voted but have never done it AFTER congress has explicitly said no, so it really depends on how congress votes whether this will be a run of the mill military strike or a new precedent being set.

Why can't someone else deal with Syria? Or better yet why not let Syria deal with Syria?

you do realize that hes not trying to start a war, or take anything, or relive the Iraq fiasco?
he is trying to enforce international laws against the use of chemical weapons.
if people can just use chemical weapons freely without having some kind of retaliation, then other countries will begin to use it, as much as they want. and chemical weapons are bad, mkay? too many civilian casualties with em, pain and suffering as you bleed out of all of your orifices, etc.

not to mention the bombing isnt going to turn the tide of the war, nor is it meant to do so, its just a slap on the wrist.
and hes within his rights as president to make this call without congress because he is not putting boots on the ground.

im reading these comments and im just sorta surprised that none of you seem to understand why he's even doing this

Can someone please explain this to me? Congress hasn't voted on it yet and Syria hasn't been bombed yet. At least I don't think so, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

you're right, he's just made a statement that says even if congress says no he wouldn't let that stop him from protecting national security. I think it's probably just getting blown out of proportion like these things always are.

from what i have heard: the UN annouces that they are going to send down a comission to search for chemical weapons. And then, on the exact areas that they had announced that they would be going to, a chemical-weapon-attack is issued.   
   
so:   
Either Assad wants the fight or the rebels or terrorists are trying to make a war.   
i'm not a conspiracy nut, and i do not claim anything regarding that.   
   
The gif is unrelated.

Well, to be fair, the President is the Commander-in-Chief, so he doesn't need Congress' approval to deploy troops, only to declare war.

Which has only been done four times in our nation's history.

"Police action" only applies if congress hasn't given consent, it doesn't apply if congress has voted no on military action.

why are we in syria anyway?
#169 to #166 - xxxsonic fanxxx (09/05/2013) [-]
We are not currently in Syria but the US congress is debating whether or not to launch missile strikes against Assad's regime. Even if congress says no, there's still a decent chance Obama will launch the missiles anyway. Either way, it's been made clear that the US gov does not want actual troops deployed to Syria.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbKIiR5pRvk Guys please watch this before you judge the situation. Anytime innocents are killed it tears at me horribly. This is no exception.

The president can only issue an attack without authorization when it is an immediate threat to the country. However to officially go to war it must be approved by congress.

They are not a threat to us, let them go do whatever they are doing.

We literally can not afford to go into another long term war like that.
