Lead sentence: The White House told Congress on Wednesday that has the legal authority to press on with U.S. military involvement in Libya and urged skeptical lawmakers not to send "mixed messages" about their commitment to the NATO-led air war.
Thus, anyone who questions the president of the United States is not only wrong, but they're a bad person---unpatriotic---if they do. King Obama. Is this Saudi Arabia? This is how a king speaks. There's not much left to the powers of Congress. Waging war has been a president's undertaking for two hundred years although the Constitution places that power in Congress.
In other matters military, the president has sent a US warship into the Black Sea in open intimidation of the Russians and the Ukrainians. The latter contemplated joining NATO but has moved away from that commitment. The trivial question is, who is paying for this? The other question is, why is the US picking on Russia again? Has the US run out of people to demonize? Does the US own the world? Russian warships don't ply the waters of Lake Michigan. This is an extremely provocative act, intentionally so.
