What is the difference between President Obama sending drones into Yemen and Pakistan to kill (without Congressional authorization) and sending cruise missiles into Syria to kill (without Congressional authorization?) And if missiles were dropped on your town, would you consider that an ‘act of war?’ PS: The Constitution says ONLY Congress has the power to declare war

question mark

By the way, even if other Presidents have done something in the past that conflict with their power, does not justify doing it again.

Your Constitution reference for declaration of war:  Article One, Section 8.

By the way, in 1941, after Pearl Harbor hit got hit on Dec 7, Congress declared war on Dec. 8.  Congress can move when it is an emergency.  We have been discussing Syria….forever!

What do YOU think?
