Uh Oh, Libyan War+No Congress Appoval =....

Ha ha ha

Quote:
A group of lawmakers plans to file a federal lawsuit Wednesday against the Obama administration, questioning the constitutional and legal justifications for military action in Libya, Fox News has confirmed.

The bipartisan group is being led by Reps. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, and Walter Jones, R-N.C., and includes GOP presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul.

Kucinich and Jones will lead a news conference at the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., to outline the claims. But according to the complaint, a copy of which was obtained by Fox News, the group is seeking "injunctive and declaratory relief to protect the plaintiffs and the country from a stated policy of defendant Barack Obama, president of the United States, whereby a president may unilaterally go to war in Libya and other countries without the declaration of war from Congress required by Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the United States Constitution."

The suit says the lawmakers are also seeking a judge to rule that the president may not commit the U.S. to war under the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) or under the authority of the United Nations, or in violation of the War Powers Resolution requiring congressional authorization for the use of military force.

It also calls for a ruling that the president may not use "funds, previously appropriated by Congress, for unconstitutional and unauthorized wars in Libya or other countries."

The White House has argued for months that NATO is not leading the way in Libya and so the president doesn't need permission from Congress to keep American forces fighting in the battle to topple Muammar al-Qaddafi's regime.

Obama has until Sunday to go to congress and ask for approval to be going to war in Libiya. If he does not then..... he is doing what ever he pleases just like he has been doing all along.
Is it 2012 yet?

The President can trump Congress if he really wants to if he feels it is an issue that will effect the USA or Humanity. Basically as stated he will pretty much do what he wants, if I remember correctly congress did not approve of us going into Somalia back in 1992 and Bush sent in troops anyway for humanitarian relief.

As president he can send troops in to a country with out congresstional approval but he 90 days to approch congress to get the ok for what he did. If not then congress can order the troops out.
Today is 90 days since obama sent troops into Lybia

Yay let's send troops to another country so our soldiers can get killed and yet another country hates us even more and will not appreciate what we did for them.

We should withdraw our troops from everywhere and rethink our whole strategy. We should gather intel, determine threats, then bomb the shit our of the threats or do small covert ops. Occupying a country is bullshit.
