DOes the congress need to declare war before military action in Syria?

Simple question:

Does the congress need to declare war on the official Government inSyria before we hit them with our missiles and Air Force...

Or should the president be able to attack another country without this authorization?

Brilliant.

Let us get on the side of the world's most influential Sunni cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who called for jihad in Syria. Islamist groups including Al Qaeda wish to create an Islamic state.

According to NATO intelligence, 70% of Syrian people support Assad.

Vladimir Putin is on the right side - At least some sober nations are helping the Assad regime otherwise Shiite Muslims, Alawite sect, and few Christians left would have already been cannibalized or beheaded by the rebels.

It's no secret most of the rebels are mercenaries.

To the OP, i simply have to say yes.... its about damned time our elected representatives had a say in the process.

If every President can go to war whenever he wants, we're nothing more than a nation full of subjects, no arguments, no better angels of our nature, period.

Rushing off to ANY kind of support for a mishmash of, in general, distrusting at best and positively hateful of America at worst, peoples is unbelievably frought with danger and unintended long term consequences.

I'll just go back to another post of mine and say that its time the ENTIRE world stepped up in terms of troops and money, America will bleed as the world stands by no longer.

I expect the government to be as respectful of the Constitution when it comes to this matter as they are when it comes to every other.

yes we need a declaration from congress. it's in the constitution, the ultimate supreme law of the land.

when you force your military power onto another country. It's an act of war. plain and simple. There isn't supposed to be "well we'll just send fighter jets over there and bomb a few thousand people and call it a day and congress can go fist themselves" like we see today. That's an act of war.

But the govt has been hijacked. they're bought and paid off and they work for their corporate interests and banking elite that truly run this country, and other parts of the world.

Will they follow the law? Nope.

I voted no, but in rereading the OP, I realize that its wording is self-conflicting. It is asking if Congress NEEDS to declare war, vs. if the President SHOULD ask first. Need and Should are not opposites.

This is an aspect of a dictatorship...

So no. He should not be able to. We're a republic.

The DC libs have gone to radio silence. What a week. Obama working creates such crap. Syria, more scandle info, economy sucking, employment never improving, another Obamacare delay, MLK party had nobody but lefty media show. Bummer to try to find anything good and what hope do they have? Even Hillary avoided MLK shindig.
