No, this works in practical application on this issue, including the broader ME. There is no threat to us, this has nothing to do with our national security or our credibility. Nada. It's hawkish progressivism....the same kind that destroyed federalism in the US using the noble lie and quest to right wrongs. Reagan would not support any of this per his points in his autobio, which Laura Ingraham pointed out last night was well.
“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
