Do we live in the age of presidential anarchy? Do laws simply no longer matter? One of my ultra liberal friends said Trump violated the law by bombing Syria without Congressional approval. He made up some BS about because Syria did not attack the US first what Trump did was illegal. I told him Trump says "eff the Constitution" for a reason. If my president wants to bomb any country it's his choice. The law is irrelevant. The President has absolute authority as Commander in Chief. I'm so sick of these liberal losers.

I thought this was another desperate attempt of a trump blaming thread, well done!


Although I´m not sure if "law is irrelevant", even when it comes to your president.

Good point! War is the only answer. Who needs laws. The Commander in Chief is our leader. Not Congress. I'm so sick of these liberals who think Trump is not in charge.

Your liberal friend is wrong, the president is legally allowed to order limited strikes like he did.

That said, he should have gathered more intel before ordering the missile strikes.

Your friends are lying to you.



Operation Infinite Reach was the codename for American cruise missile strikes on al-Qaeda bases in Khost, Afghanistan, and the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory in Khartoum, Sudan, on August 20, 1998. The attacks, launched by the U.S. Navy, were ordered by President Bill Clinton in retaliation for al-Qaeda's August 7 bombings of American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which killed 224 people (including 12 Americans) and injured over 4,000 others. Operation Infinite Reach was the first time the U.S. acknowledged a preemptive strike against a violent non-state actor.[15]

All liberals and minorities should start worshipping Trump, maybe that's the fast road to impeachment.

Impeachment worked out well for Bill Clinton.

$100 million and a foundation worth over $2 billion dollars.

Go ahead.

It's meaningless.

trump is in charge is precisely the problem and you don't have to be a liberal to figure that out! the fact that he made a 180 on his foreign policy overnight is cause for concern. the man has been getting 4 hours of sleep for a year straight and its catching up to him, i warned about this when he was campaigning like he was on meth!

Well, he alerted Russia before Congress so yeah, he broke the law BUT you're right, seems like laws don't apply anymore and our Congress just lets it happen. Why is that? Probably because they're all bought and paid for good little boys who do what their told.

Corruption has completely taken over politics for a very long time. One day someone may actually try to drain the swamp but clearly isn't gonna be Trump.

I actually think that Trump should have waited for better evidence before the strike on that base. He did not go by the rules. The evidence he used to bomb Syria was not adequate in my mind. The UN would have investigated it, but he jumped the gun. I have this funny hunch that he messed up bad.

The Afghanistan bombing is a different thing, that was intended towards ISIS, a group that we are at war against. Hopefully he had the OK from the government of Afghanistan on that.

As far as legal in this country, other presidents have done similar things about not getting Congresses approval.

He admitted to bribing politicians in the debates on national TV, so he admitted to being a criminal before he even got elected.

Not that his retarded voters give a damn.

Id say that all presidents since maybe carter have bombed other countries without the go ahead from congress, so no i don't think trump broke any laws.
