President who vowed to end war, now seeks sweeping power to expand it

Secretary of State John F. Kerry told Congress Tuesday that President Obama wants expansive war powers to pursue the Islamic State terrorists wherever and however he deems necessary, stunning lawmakers by requesting a war authorization that would even allow the Pentagon to commit American combat troops to the fight.

Though Mr. Obama doesn’t want combat troops, he won’t have Congress tie his hands against unforeseen directions the war could take should the Islamic State evolve, expand its fight to other countries or prove more difficult to rout, Mr. Kerry said.

    If congress even attempts to pacify this rookie dictator we should band together and impeach him and the congress, with a bill like this he could assault Texas if he felt like it.
    Americans would rebel if that took place.

      If Texas was harboring the Islamic State – and there’s no proof they’re not – then yes, the government should attack the IS in Texas. Or Idaho or Rhode Island. I doubt Americans would rebel if our military attacked in the IS – or Al Qaeda – on American soil.

    Just more evidence of his ignorance, stupidity, cupidity and lack of experience sufficient to even qualify him to be the local dog catcher.
