President Obama wants war …

 

In a recent letter to members of Congress, the President asked for legislation providing him the authority to use of military force against ISIS. He even gave legislators a draft of the legislation he wants…

 

But if the United States is to go to War, Congress – not the President – is to set the terms.

 

This is why Special Operations Speaks needs you to take action now and start contacting members of the U.S. House and Senate. If Congress is to authorize Obama to act -- if they are to Declare War as the Constitution requires -- certain definitions must be put in place:

1. Define the Enemy -- Radical Islamic Extremism

2. Define the Rules of Engagement -- Untie the troops' hands 

3. Define the Goal -- Victory. We will not end this war; we will win it.  

 

Special Operations Speaks is not telling Congress to go to war – they need to make that decision based upon the will of the People – but we are guiding them on how to proceed, should they decide to take such measures. 

 

If a war is what’s needed to defeat ISIS, let it be done powerfully and effectively – Congress cannot allow Obama to engage our troops in a weak, aimless war.

Obama has so many of our basis down and eliminated our sources, why doesn't he get another Country to do this instead of it ALWAYS being the USA, then we go in and clean everything up and make it ALL better...like every other war we have been in. We fight them and then bring them to the states to let them make a better life at the US's expense. Impeach Obama.

If any of you people know what war is really about you will not take this request lightly and you will definitely not let an administration that has no idea what combat is like make rash and uneducated decisions to send our military men and woman into harms way. You are the only governmental body that decides if our country will go to war for foreign interest and if you do declare war you must define the enemy correctly, define the ROE correctly in order for the war fighters to be able to win and define a definite goal from the very beginning for the war fighters to achieve. Don't leave us hanging in the wind again and most definately don't relinquish you power to an administration that has no record of either winning or decision making.

Congress must be the one who declares war. We must identify the enemy and must have a concrete plan made by the military generals, not the President.
