Latest war an illegal act

Our presidential pretender has involved America in another war in the Muslim world based on a U.N. resolution. The other countries involved with enforcing this resolution had legislative votes to authorize the action. Mr. (Barack) Obama didn’t. We are in an illegal war our elected representatives weren’t consulted about, or authorized.  There is precedent for this illegality. (President Bill) Clinton involved America in Kosovo without legislative authorization, where we are involved to this day. Now, before extremist left-wingers make the false claim that (President George) Bush got us into an illegal war in Iraq, research the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 (PL-105-338) signed by Bill Clinton on Oct. 31, 1998 that stated the policy of the United States was to remove Saddam Hussein. Also, research HJR 114 of Oct 11, 2002, five months before Iraq began, which specifically authorized President Bush to use military force in Iraq. Despite these documents, leftists continually falsely accused Bush and called for his impeachment. Where are the leftist calls for the impeachment of Obama now that he, like Clinton, really involved us in an illegal war? There is an enormous hypocritical, double standard in play here. And where is our pretender-in-chief? Why, on yet another vacation, of course! Willard F. Schmehl, Cool
