When the Obama regime launched military strikes against Libya in 2011 without Congressional approval, it violated both the United States Constitution and the War Powers Resolution of 1973. That criminal act led directly to the slaughter of four Americans - including a sitting Ambassador - the following year in a terrorist attack that the Obama regime continues to lie about and cover up.
Today, we learn that the Obama regime is likely to get the U.S. involved in another illegal war, this time against Syria. The pretext for this war will be the alleged use of chemical weapons against civilians in suburban Damascus. While it appears likely that deadly chemical agents were in fact used, it is unknown for certain which side in the Syrian civil war used them.
Of course, even if Assad's forces turn out to be the responsible party, that does not mean American military involvement is the wise choice. Assad's opponents are Islamists aligned with al-Qaeda who have been brutalizing Christians. There is no "good guy" in this war, so supporting one side over the other would not be in America's best interests.
But the Obama regime doesn't seem to care much about America's best interests, so they are strongly considering unilateral military action against the Syrian government, including cruise missile strikes and perhaps even the use of ballistic missiles. Such an action does not have the blessing of the United Nations, and more importantly does not have the support of the American people. But the most important consideration is that the U.S. Congress has not authorized military intervention in Syria, meaning any attack would be illegal.
Would the American people sit idly by and allow the lawless Obama regime to pursue such a criminal action? Most likely, yes. We may not yet live in a post-American world, but it appears increasingly obvious that we are living in a post-Constitutional America.
