Kucinich Warns Obama on Libya War


www.thenation.com

“Congress should be called back into session immediately to decide whether or not to authorize the United States’ participation in a military strike. If it does not, the action of the President is contrary to U.S. Constitution. Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution clearly states that the United States Congress has the power to declare war. The President does not. That was the Founders’ intent.

“I have sent a letter to Congressional leadership indicating that the national interest requires...

The American people have had enough. First it was Afghanistan, then Iraq. Then bombs began to fall in Pakistan, then Yemen, and soon it seems bombs could be falling in Libya. Our nation simply cannot afford another war, economically, diplomatically or spiritually.”


Amen.

But there is a Greater Israel to acquire, Mr. Kucinich, have we forgotten? General Wesley Clark saw the letter!

And Libya's on the list! Along with Syria, Iran, Lebanon and the usual propaganda targets.

/sarcasm.

Thank you for sending that letter, Mr. Kucinich, but it will undoubtedly fall on deaf ears. Hearing tests should be required to join Congress, don't you think?

I disagree with his comment that anyone tried to 'downplay' what a no-fly zone' entails. This was made explicitly clear in the media in the past weeks.

What does that have to do with him making an inaccurate statement? The implications of what a 'no fly zone' entailed were not exactly 'played down' in the media. If anyone thought imposing a 'no fly zone meant the UN would just say "You cant fly", then they were paying only cursory attention. I'm not defending this military action. My contention with that specific aspect of Kucinich's statement in now way implies so.

I see Mr. Kucinich and Mr. Ron Paul are using the same script.. They both need to understand the warpowers act is not constitutional, and Congress has a little bit less auithority in that area than they think.

We're going to continue this blatant act of war against Gadhafi, kill more civilians, then have a group of Jihadists in Libya that will carry on Gadhafi's war against the west. Remember how they flocked to Afghanistan & Iraq to join the war against the crusader west?

I love how we are protecting civilians by killing civilians..
Seems logical....no?

Well, Peace Prize Obama has dragged us into yet another war. And like usual, we'll be left to pick up the pieces in 2012. God knows I'm not voting for Obama again..

The POTUS and the UN have usurped the legislative function of the Congress with respect to war powers.

law to hold both positions at once.

Minister Louis Abdul-Haleem Farrakhan Muhammad, Sr. (born Louis Eugene Walcott; May 11, 1933) is the leader of the Chicago, Illinois-based Nation of Islam and he "Blasts Obama on Libya Bombing":




Let us not jump to conclusions about Gadhafi. It appears he has been firing on his own people but do we know the whole story? Is he being painted as a boogey-man to legitimize U.S. take-over of Libya?

Ponder this:
“Be careful, brother, how you handle this situation because it is coming to America! It has already started. Look in Wisconsin! Look in Ohio! Look at what’s going on in your country! And remember your words because the American people are rising against their own government: It’s not Muslims; it’s not Black people! It’s White militias that are angry with their government, and they are well armed. Are you going to tell them-’Put your arms down, and let’s talk it over peacefully?’ I hope so. But if not, America will be bathed in blood, not because Farrakhan said so, but because the dissatisfaction in America has reached the boiling point. Be careful how you manipulate the dissatisfaction in Libya and other parts of the Muslim world,” he warned.

Obama and the military-industrial complex have not cared and do not care about the people of Libya:

“Is it that you’re (U.S. officials) so concerned over the blood that is being shed in Libya, when you looked the other way when the Israeli Defense Force was bombing the innocent people of Gaza, unarmed men, women and children? … You looked the other way when the Israeli Defense Force went into Lebanon thinking that they were going to have an easy victory, then you had to come out with your tail between your legs?”

Nor did they do anything in Africa to help the people during the genocides (which are still going on?) So, WHAT IS YOUR GOAL HERE MR.PRESIDENT?

I am not an American so i dont know the finer points of American politics, but am i right in thinking that whatever the UN decides is of more authority than Congress? Surely if they give the ok for military action then surely that superceeds a soverign parliament/congress?
