There are times when a general is a valid military target - Murder, assassination, however we describe it, it's the same thing. Trump's actions were abhorent and have been condemned by almost every national leader who has commented on the strike.You Americans have such nice ways of saying "murder".
We never declared war in those cases, Trump is trying to declare war from the Oval Office - something he is constitutionally prohibited from doing. Congress has allowed presidents limited powers regarding the deployment of forces in the past due to expediency and the belief that whomever was the president was a reasonable person. That has now changed and Congress is considering revoking that power from the Executive branch and restoring it to the Congress where it always belonged.You're way off course here so allow me to back up a step here.
You made a post about declaration of war without congressional approval. If you truly have an issue with that, then surely you must also be outraged by Obama dragging us into Libya, Syria, and Yemen, right? There certainly wasn't a congressional authorization for Obama to go into those countries! Right?
Well that's the first thing you've gotten right in a while.
In other news, Trump's governance by Twitter backfires.
He can't. It's his only remaining argument - and it's also a fallacy, like pretty much everything he says.And knock it off with the Whataboutism - Obama didn't do this, he's not the issue.
Since not even Mitch McConnell, the guy with actual power and influence whose number one priority was making sure president Obama would be a one-term president (LOL), made noise about this, I’m sure that your point is moot, as usual.Obama should've been impeached
