Apparently, there are some people just discovering that the President of the United States can bomb countries without a congressional declaration of war. I guess you guys missed Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Iraq, Bosnia, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya–oh and, for the past three years, Syria?
You do understand that the last time Congress declared war was in 1941, right?
You do know that President Obama bombed 7 countries, all under the authorization to use military force in response to the September 2001 terror attacks, to be used specifically against those who perpetrated the attacks?
You do understand that the United States has an imperial presidency now, don’t you?
The left in this country will continue to be ineffective and irrelevant until they take a consistent, morally grounded and politically clear stance against war and violence. ALL war. Not just the war that happens when there’s a president you don’t like.
