It kinda blows because the constitution states that although the president cannot declare war (only congress can). The president still has the power to deploy troops and strike at will as commander and chief.
So only Congress can declare war(which they probably still would) but the president is allowed to flex his muscles freely worldwide. Because of we are destined for disaster. Bush already said he has no regrets on his decisions in Iraq, that just means the party just started. I feel bad for our soldiers stuck in the middle of the neo-cons crazy Good vs Evil role playing game.
Iran is huge and has one of the biggest best trained armies in the region. Also the love and support of the strong Shi'a population surrounding the region not only in Iran, but Iraq,Kuwait and other spots. It would totally suck to go to war with them. To me its not a winning or losing thing, because even though our military rules, is fully voluntary and owns most of the time but has been used in vain by these old morons running the show, its a different story in Iran.
Occupying 3 countries in the same region is no joke. Although all I know if Iran is from books documentaries, news etc. I do know we have a strong history of screwing around in their shit and we are cooking up a whole different level of Hate soup from them, Iraq didn't have much beef wit us we loved Saddam back in the day until he tried to kill H.W and then we went in for the pownage, but we've been messing with Iran for a lot longer in worst ways, And they won't be occupied that easy.
We can't even hold down Iraq! How are we going to hold down Iran. Maybe the Neo-cons should take a lesson in Occupation 101. Because the track record so far isn't to impressive. Theirs probably no way to stop this war from happening. All we can do is sit around and watch it play out.
Also prepare to be drafted if you are under 30 and a dude. But ill leave you wit this: everyone rags on Obama for wanting to talk with Mahmoud Ahminedejad wit no preconditions. And even though Obama voted for most of the legislation that led to this act of war against Iran he makes a good point.
....Whatever happened to countries leaders just talking.....
....No scams and flams.. No preconditions just plain old dudes who are willing to talk like men!
That's what this situation needs.
