Yup, that is just what Barack Obama proposes for America. Has the man learned nothing over his two failed terms in office? Syria poses no threat to America. Syria has not attacked America. And Obama wants to print up $500 million to ostensibly arm and train rebels. Who are the rebels? As Pat Buchanan rightly notes, “President Bashar Assad is fighting against the al Qaida-linked al-Nusra Front and the even more extreme and vicious Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.”
Pat asks, “What are we doing? … Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin says he wants no part of Obama’s new wars. Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine rightly asserts that President Obama has no authority to take us into war in Syria or Iraq.”
Buchanan concludes, “Congress should block the $500 million for Obama’s wars and tell him his days as imperial president are over.”
Here at richardcyoung.com we will be posting, with special placement, the names of all members of Congress who vote to approve the Obama war-funding request. Americans will have a handy checklist with which to go to the polls this fall.
