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.

All radical Islamic terrorist groups want to destroy the US, therefore we are at war with them while not fighting a war. We should be locking down our borders and using our military to protect this nation. But we need a patriotic Commander in chief.

It is utterly hoprrible to send our men into battle and tie their hands so they cannot engage the enemy in the way they need too. And loss of our lives before the enemy id NOT acceptable. CONGRESS is the ONLY power to wage war! NOT Barack the TRAITOR Obama!

As a veteran having been involved in a restrictive capacity during the Guantanamo missile crisis, there is no way our currently, and future military personnel should ever be hog tied while in the face of our enemies. They MUST know who the enemy is, how they will be engaged, and what the WINNING goal is. If that is not to be, they must be removed from harms way.

A Muslim will never accept a Christian and that is why the president looks so out of place in our White House. Don't bother with the racist card, it's his response to the greatest threat on this earth that is the problem. Our boys will have to go in later and shed blood because the president played footsies with our enemies. Congratulations President Obama you made sure that more young men will have to die because you thought like Chamberlain, as always appease and lose.
