This is the typical response to such things. Please, look at cause and effect instead of just reacting to such reports in knee-jerk fashion. We need to put our own govt in it's proper place because it has gone rogue due to influential interest groups agitating. If someone did those things to us we'd do the same thing back. We started these wars of choice in the ME on countries not responsible fro 9/11. We didn't need to do that. This is what Reagan predicted would happen.
“The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the legislature.” ~ James Madison, Father of the Constitution
“We do not believe in aggressive or preventive war. Such war is the weapon of dictators, not of free democratic countries like the United States.”~ Truman, Sept 1, 1950
