Immorality is a perception labeled against others based upon one's own set of held values...yet cultural insensitivity is much easier mind to change.

America is always ready for whatever vicariously thrilling bull# that gets thrown at them. As long as it gives them something to be mad at or gives them a hard-on, it doesn't matter how truthful it is or isn't.
Americans are stupid and immoral, and will believe anything that riles up their emotions or their libidos.
Yes, I said it. And here comes the America Defense Brigade to spout historical lies and emotional nonsense...

I think he already holds the power to do what you suggest.
Most talking heads agree that the bill actually limits hussiens current power that were givin to w after the last ff.
He does already have that power. It through that power strikes were started on ISIL to begin with. All he need from Congress is the ability to keep it going beyong a certain time frame.
So for the OP he can already attack anywhere he sees a threat. Congress just comes along later and decides if he gets funding to keep a conflict going. What shoud concen you is the people who oppose the ISIS bill, oppose it because they do not think it goes far enough. And that includes the American public who polliing shows wants to more action even ground troops. Something the White House wants to avoid.

Maybe if we keep on calling out fails flag everyday they'll think we're on to them and not go through with it.

Of course, the flip side is that as soon as the USA declares official war on ISIS, ISIS will be able to attack the United States with impunity, anywhere they like in the USA. The entire USA will become a legitimate war target for ISIS, under the rules of war laid out by the Geneva Conventions and the United Nations.
