Yes, the wishes of the American people are truly being pooped on today. They know that they will never face repercussions for disregarding us, because we don't truly elect them. The millions they make from these wars are just bones, and the dems and reps are just dogs - being fed those bones by their masters in corporate America who are making BILLIONS from the same war deals and twisted lies. It's those corporations who are eating the steak from which the bones are pulled.
People in America don't want to see this. Sure, I know a lot of people who want to see Achmedinuts put to sleep, and I believe we have the power to win a war there, but I don't know anyone who really thinks we should be over there bringing war to the whole nation. And I don't either.
This is just terrible news. Out of curiosity, does Obama support this? I'd sure like to know if he really is about "change," or if he's just talking to dumb people who like to fall for buzzwords with all that crap (I have a hunch it's the buzzwords.)
The War Powers Act of 1973 (Pub.L. 93-148), also referred to as the War Powers Resolution, is a resolution of the Congress of The United States of America that stated that the President of The United States of America can send troops into action abroad only by authorization of Congress or if the United States of America is already under attack or serious threat. The War Powers Act requires that the president notify Congress within 48 hours of committing troops to military action and forbids troops from remaining for more than 60 days without an authorization of force or a declaration of war.
