In addition to the fact that our “allies” look like something from Mad Max–and some consist of al Qaeda--I am struck that we’ve not heard an Oval Office address. I cannot recall a military action in my lifetime without some run up, a domestic debate, some sign off through resolution or otherwise by the Congress, and a solemn case made to the American people by the President.
Obama, instead, allowed himself to be persuaded this was a good idea–scared perhaps the Clintons would undermine him for inaction–and then he was off to Brazil. Obama seems to think he could get into war as an afterthought, much like his appointment of strange leftist weirdos such as Van Jones. He forgot forces on the right and left have an opinion about this. And he really forgot that he was not elected to start “wars of choice” but rather to end them.
