Obama decides to follow the Constitution and seek Congressional approval for Syrian military strike
Obama addressed the public on Saturday from the White House Rose Garden. He confirmed US’s intention to use force against Syria, however, is reportedly waiting to enforce military action until Congress is able to hold a debate and vote on the matter.
“House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said on Saturday that he expects the House to consider the measure the week of Sept. 9,” reported The Hill.
Obama claims he has the authority to move forward solo, but surprisingly stated it’s important for the country to debate military intervention.
“I will seek authorization for the use of force from the American people’s representatives in Congress. The country will be stronger if we take this course and our actions will be more effective,” said Obama.
His position most likely stems from innumerable world allies and government officials who have strongly voiced their opposition to military involvement in Syria.
Just as Dr. Paul Craig Roberts wrote today in a piece entitled America Totally Discredited, he assesses this is the greatest diplomatic meltdown in US history.
In his report he acknowledges the greatest danger now is that the White House may attempt to stage something else in order to persuade the unconvinced public into a war with Syria.
“The rest of the world has learned to avoid Washington’s rush to war when there is no evidence,” writes Roberts.
Both Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul have come out saying the chemical attacks have all the hallmarks of a false flag or staged event.
In closing, Obama nonchalantly informed the public that the US is in a position to strike, and that the strike could come tomorrow, next week or even a month from now.
A military response is “not time sensitive,” reiterated the President.
Following the UK Parliament’s decision to vote no against Syrian intervention, “Obama indicated he will not wait for either approval from the U.N. Security Council or the conclusion of U.N. inspectors’ investigation into the Syria attack,” reported Fox News.
Obama’s decision to follow the Constitutional law of the republic for now, is a tremendous victory for America.
