    Obama: the Anti-War, Nobel Peace Prize Winner Declares War

    Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama,
    Who was swept into office on his anti-war stance,

    Has committed the United States to another war.

    President Obama, who won the White House by capturing the anti-war vote, struck an aggressive military posture Friday in dealing with Libya.

    Obama said Friday the U.N. resolution authorizing air strikes against Libya was not an outcome the U.S. had asked for, but one only Libyan Col. Moammar Gadhafi could avoid.

    Obama was the darling of the anti-war left during the 2008 campaign, bursting onto the national stage with his opposition to the Iraq war and siphoning off Democratic support from opponent Hillary Clinton, who had voted for the use of force in Iraq. In 2008, MoveOn.org endorsed Obama, providing a major boost to his bid to win the Democratic nomination over Clinton.

    So will the left revolt in response to Obama’s military ambitions?

    Nah!

    They’ll probably give him another award.

    America does not need to be in Libya.

    Obama did not consult Congress to declare war and that is unconstitutional.
    This is an impeachable offense.

    Dennis Kucinich: Obama's Libya Attack An Impeachable Offense

    A number of Democratic and Republican lawmakers are concerned about the White House's air assault on Libya, but Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) raised the rhetoric to 11 on Monday, suggesting President Obama should be impeached.

    "President Obama moved forward without Congress approving. He didn't have Congressional authorization, he has gone against the Constitution, and that's got to be said," Kucinich said in an interview with Raw Story. "It's not even disputable, this isn't even a close question. Such an action -- that involves putting America's service men and women into harm's way, whether they're in the Air Force or the Navy -- is a grave decision that cannot be made by the president alone."

    According to Kucinich, Obama's decision "would appear on its face to be an impeachable offense," though he questioned whether Congress would ever move forward with a trial in practice.

    As reported earlier by Politico, Kucinich raised the specter of impeachment in a conference call with Democratic lawmakers on Saturday.

    Presidents have initiated many military conflicts without congressional approval since World War II, including President Clinton's air assault on the Milosevic regime in Serbia in 1999, President Bush's intervention in Somalia in 1992, and President Reagan's own attack on Qaddafi in 1986. The War Powers Act -- passed in reaction to the Vietnam War and mostly ignored by Presidents since then -- requires the president to inform Congress that he is committing U.S. forces abroad within 48 hours and to request approval within 60 days.

      There is a BIG DIFFERENCE in Declaring War and helping in supporting a U.N. Resolution 1976 and participating in a Multi-National Force to keep Moammar Gadhafi from killing his own people, that have the ungodly circumstances of living there all their lives. That article you Posted and quoted from Will E. Worm fails to mention, that it was France, that sent in the first Air Strikes. It also fails to mention, that the United States has no intentions of sending in Ground Troops. Ooh, let's NOT forget, that the Arab League of Nations asked the United Nations and the United States for help.
