Everyone Is Fleeing Naive Obama’s Illegal War

Published by at 10:22 am under All General Discussions,Obama's War In Libya

It seems the world is learning what it means to institute military action under the umbrella of the “international community”, as opposed to the tried and true American-led coalitions we have seen for the last three decades. President Obama’s naive and lazy approach to this entire debacle has underlined why some real leadership experience is not just a ‘nice to have’. Especially in a President.

As I noted yesterday, the entire endeavor was not only ill conceived, but illegal. The UN violated its charter, and Obama violated the US Constitution.

Some may not know it, but this is not the first time Emperor Obama has discarded the rule of law to flex his limp muscles. He has also initiated an assassination order against a US citizen without bothering with a trial and verdict. Thus Emporer Obama has declared himself judge, jury and executioner (via Executive Order) of a US Citizen who has clearly become a traitor. The target is so clearly a traitor it would seem only laziness bars Emperor Obama from upholding the constitution, obtaining a guilty verdict on treason and sedition – and then ordering the hit.

Or is it truly another sign of the depth of which Obama is in over his head?

The headlines today are looking horrible for Obama. Just look at the top bullets in this one UK Article:

  • Who’s in charge? Germans pull forces out of NATO as Libyan coalition falls apart
  • # Tensions with Britain as Gates rebukes UK government over suggestion Gaddafi could be assassinated
  • # French propose a new political ‘committee’ to oversee operations
  • # Germany pulls equipment out of NATO coalition over disagreement over campaign’s direction
  • # Italians accuse French of backing NATO in exchange for oil contracts
  • # No-fly zone called into question after first wave of strikes ‘neutralises’ Libyan military machine
  • # U.K. ministers say war could last ’30 years’
  • # Italy to ‘take back control’ of bases used by allies unless NATO leadership put in charge of the mission
  • # Russians tell U.S. to stop bombing in order to protect civilians – calls bombing a ‘crusade’

Goodness, if this had been a war against a strong enemy we would be at risk of losing outright.

Even worse, word started spreading that the rebel strongholds we are protecting where also the source of Jihadi fighters sent to Iraq and Afghanistan to kill our people and terrorize the locals. Is the incompetence so deep here that the Three Amigos (Sarkozy, Cameron and Obama) did not know who they were providing Humanitarian Aid to?

I really hate to say this, but this much digression from the rule of law begs for an impeachment process. It needs to happen at least through the House stage – the investigative/indictment stage.

A serious line has been crossed here. There is no way to avoid facing the fact we need to go through the process of determining whether the President has the freedom to bypass the procedures in the Constitution at a whim or not. Emperor Obama’s acts are now so egregious and obvious he demands the nation to call his bluff.

Lack of action now means surrendering our country. This debacle is the best example of unchecked power we have seen in recent memory. If we want checks on the powerful so they cannot use all us normal folks as pawns and cannon fodder, now is the time, the event, to take a stand.

Update: Yep, we are now aligned with Al Qaeda’s goals. We have hit an all new level of FUBAR!

    Does anyone know how to conduct research any more? This is a story from FoxNews today: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2011/03/22/obama-face-legal-limits-libyan-intervention-drags/#

    The War Powers Act is already in effect!

    “The constitutional powers of the President as Commander-in-Chief to introduce United States Armed Forces into hostilities, or into situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated by the circumstances, are exercised only pursuant to (1) a declaration of war, (2) specific statutory authorization, or (3) a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces.”

    Seriously?! That took me 30 seconds. No wonder there is a bigger escalation in the US by the people and Congress. No one knows how to find out the facts!

    AJ,
    Why are you sorry to ask for O’s impeachment?
    Iit was clear for a long time he has committed “high crimes and misdemeanors” which are grounds for impeachment.
    And you expect the check pants repubics to do it?
    C’mon…

  3. crosspatch says:

    The president says the U.S. will begin to pull back from Libya mission as Defense Dept. ends use of Tomahawk missiles on Qaddafi’s forces

    Just a I thought. Run up close to Libya, toss in a few missiles, and run away but at least he can say he didn’t do “nothing”.

    This is *not* going to end well.

  4. Woofguy says:

    Maybe we’re run out of Tomahawks….

    I agree with Crosspatch, unfortunately he still has a lot of backers in the media. Probably will be spun well in his favor…

    very sad days….

  5. WWS says:

    As I have said previously, we now have only two options:

    1) Cut and Run, allowing Qaddaffy to declare victory.

    2) Escalate, escalate, escalate.

    I predict that Obama will cut and run by the end of the month.

    All of this will have been for nothing.

    They used to call Reagan the Teflon President. Obama seems to be in the running for the title these days, as nothing sticks to him. The reason for this, however, is the media, and how they print what is supportive and ignore what is not.

  7. AJStrata says:

    WWS,

    The 3rd option is dump all this on France and begin Congressional investigations.

  8. WWS says:

    France has one aircraft carrier and no money. No EW capability, no airborne refueling capability, no long distance transport capability. One of the biggest, unspoken travesties of the world today is that *all* of the Europeans have allowed their military forces to decay into mockeries of what would actually be effective forces.

    From a 2008 report on the French military:

    “French army falling apart, documents show.
    Most of France’s tanks, helicopters and jet fighters are unusable and its defence apparatus is on the verge of “falling apart”, it has emerged.”

    “Less than half of its Puma helicopters, 37 per cent of its Lynx choppers and 33 per cent of its Super Frelon models – built 40 years ago – are in a fit state to fly, according to documents seen by Le Parisien newspaper.

    Two thirds of France’s Mirage F1 reconnaissance jets are unusable at present.”
