Kucinich: Obama deployed troops to Jordan 'without notifying Congress'; 'Immeasurably' closer to war in Syria

US News: Ohio Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich believes the deployment of American troops in Jordan — which was announced Wednesday — brings the United States "immeasurably" closer to being dragged into the civil war in Syria.

"I can see in a moment how it happens: we're a few dozen miles from the Syrian border and all of a sudden we are within the reach of physical danger. All it takes is a single incident," Kucinich said in a phone interview with U.S. News.

The Ohio congressman complained that the commander-in-chief sent the troops to Jordan "without notifying Congress." Ironically, Kucinich noted, the Obama administration announced the deployment exactly ten years after the House of Representatives authorized President George W. Bush to invade Iraq.

Why can Obama do this?

Why can Obama do this? "America buys war like children gobble candy." Henry Kissinger. Kissinger also said that " Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy."

Why ? Here is why...

Why ?

Because we are just not numerous enough standing against it, yet. But our number is growing fast, thank God.

We are only the early adopters of the idea that the constitution has been suffering for 100 years the attacks of globalist collectivists who make Stalin and others look like pleasant and picturesque characters.

Jekyll Island did engender a monstruous beast that continues to develop thru the U.N., the CFR, and various havens of sociopathic planners.

We are only at the beginning of a restoration revolution to bring Liberty and Peace back to the land of the free.

It is going to be tough but we will do it because this is really now Good vs. Evil.

There is no exit. Let us prepare in every of our guts.

They have no mercy for humanity.

They live only by and for their spreadsheets.

They have thrown the gauntlet down, before God.

Let us show them that their enslaving us is OVER.

Obama deployed troops to Jordan 'without notifying Congress'

But I still support Obama for President. - Kucinich

He makes himself out to be

He makes himself out to be just as irresponsible as the prez unless he follows through on his empty threats.

All speculation

but I truly believe we would be dead smack in the middle of WWIII if McCain was in office.

The suspense is killing me

Can't Obama just hit the damn red button and get it over with?!?!

Bring on Armageddon and be done with it. You know the government wants to do it. The ultimate expression of power--destroying the world in one orgasmic rush--Just because they can!

Can we now say were officially in a Dictatorship ?

Not Obama's Dictatorship, but Corporate Dictatorship..... ?
Shall we say....Oil Dictatorship ?

Was this new war power spelled out in the PNAC doctrine ?

Under the

TYRANNY OF CORPORATISM (big gov + big business + big labor), the government ALWAYS has the upper hand.

Whatever happened to that

Whatever happened to that resolution going through the House that threatened impeachment of obama if he attacked syria or any other country without a declaration of war?

Congress want to be re-elected, so they won't make waves.

Except for Amash not a single Congressman deserves to be re-seated. They are all a bunch of worthless bums or worse.

This link is what it's about not the actual documents. You can find them on the net though.



Why is anyone shocked?


Panetta and Dempsey told Jeff Sessions "congress is ceremonial" 7 months ago. International law, UN resolution, NATO, the Arab League, our troops are probably wearing UN uniforms as I type.


I'm sure we're there just for humanitarian efforts of helping refugees.

Being Sarcastic?

I hope? Not gonna vote on your comment until I am sure.


Either sarcastic or a fool.

I'm tired of all this.

I'm tired of all this.

I am angry at US, CIVILIANS.

How come WE ARE NOT IN THE STREETS already, calling a cat "a cat", a spade "a spade" ? Not standing speaking out, out loud, against those traitors who see YOUR soldiers as nothing but GUN MEAT for use as planned in their SPREADSHEETS ?

WE must stand and DENOUNCE what they use these soldiers for : to BETRAY the Constitution. Now, CONTINUOUSLY. BLATANTLY. Arrogant, UNASHAMED TRAITORS in offices that THEY BOUGHT.


I might go for it sooner rather than later, even if I am alone and I look like a crazy. I won't care. I know how I feel and what I need to do to sleep with my conscience preserved.

Problem is I have to keep my job and continue to sustain my family, by my work ALONE, and that's three adults and five kids. That's the rat race trap I'm in 5 to 6 days a week.

This is outrageous we are still so few to even CARE beyond just our beloved ones, while so many other sheeple don't even see the slaughterhouse they're making everybody run to, at full speed.

The CORRUPT French government will hear me, too, in a couple weeks when I visit my relatives in Paris, that's what the sign will read :

Right on, man!

I am 1000% with you.

Hang in there. Keep being there for your family. You will know what to do and what not to do.

We will WIN this. Hang in there.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

oh just let

the lawyers sort it out - they will tell us what to do .... (Romney)

Gary Johnson 2012

I remember when Romney said that

That's when Ron Paul told him to read the Constitution

We are in another war for our Independence.

How, in God's name, do we get this SOB out of

office? He should be tried for war crimes! I feel sick anymore when I read some of this stuff.

There's Another SOB Right Behind Him

Keep that in mind if you're considering voting for Romney. Remember that Romney has all of Dubya's neocons as his foreign policy advisers.



I'll throw my vote to Roseanne Barr before a Republicrat!

I think it would be awesome if whole troops

went AWOL simultaneously. How can they arrest 10's of thousands of soldiers when there's no one left to arrest them? Just wishful thinking.

Ronpaul1fan - more need to just walk away

Vote up!
Vote down!

more need to just walk away

Damn, the poor troops

They must be tired of fighting in all of these conflicts.

The troops ARE getting tired of the conflicts Mr Kotter

so tired in fact that they are putting bullets in their own heads at record numbers.
