War (Powers Resolution)……What Is It Good For??

Absolutely nothing!!

Just to be clear:  President Obama launches an air-strike campaign against a country that the administration itself admits serves no “vital interest.”  He has 60 days to either get a congressional declaration of war or authorization.  And now chooses to ignore the law so the bombings can continue, even though he once believed the commander-in-chief did not possess the power to unilaterally authorize military attacks.

This is not surprising, of course, considering that President Obama has taken the Bush/Cheney national security doctrine to its next logical step:  assassination attempts on an American citizen without the pretense of due process.

War is indeed the health of the state.
