Trump enforces Obama’s Red Line… with Bill Clinton’s Tomahawk Diplomacy.

There are a great many Politicians and Talking Heads that need to read the following:

“The War Powers Resolution requires the President to notify Congress within 48 hours of committing armed forces to military action and forbids armed forces from remaining for more than 60 days, with a further 30-day withdrawal period, without a Congressional authorization for use of military force (AUMF) or a declaration of war by the United States. The resolution was passed by two-thirds of Congress, overriding a presidential veto.”

That’s 90 days for a President to do what they please. 90 days.

If you’re taking a position on our bombing of a Syrian Airbase in response to the use of Weapons of Mass Destruction, then you shouldn’t continue to remain willfully ignorant.

I’m not asking you to agree, or disagree, with Trump’s bombing of Syria.

I’m asking you to makeaneffort.

While the Left hates it… words still mean specific things and are not subject to how you feel about them.
