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.

This is the U.S.A. with three branches each branch has specific granted powers via our constitution. Respect the power granted and don't let another branch overstep the power granted to said branch. So few representing so many . Respect the constitution's oath you took before taking seat of representation and your granted powers as congressmen/women. Represent We the People not another branch of our government .

Never let Obama decide when to start a war,. Congress needs to have the final say and know the terms. President cannot be trusted.

Our politicians need to start doing their jobs and reining this IOC(Idiot in charge) in and representing the people that elected them instead of the administration that is trying to strangle this once great country.

Obama's claims to fame was his articulate speech and positive presence, as a Junior Senator from Illinois, elected to be the speaker at the Democratic Convention. Prior to this, he was an unknown, and the likes of his handlers ... Axelrod, Emanuel, Jarret, etc. were instrumental in putting him "on the political map". Bottom line, he has never been qualified to be President, let alone Commander in Chief, and he is nothing but a puppet, as well as a free-loader.

Enough of the President acting unilaterally. This needs to end and he should observe the constitution in the way the framers intended.

Congress has the power to declare war. The president, the authority to prosecute it. His prosecutorial discretion must be defined by Congress. Ridiculous prisoner exchanges must be forbidden.
