Obama has Decided it is Safer to Buy Congress, by Paul Craig Roberts -

Hello old Friends, I monitor, the DP daily, but, haven't posted for a while. Today, I decided to share this PCR article with you. As usual, he doesn't hold back any punches and reiterates his belief of the single event that will stop this evil Washington juggernaut...

Obama Has Decided That It Is Safer To Buy Congress Than To Go It Alone

Paul Craig Roberts

While still claiming dictatorial powers to start a war on his own authority, Obama put his unilateral attack on Syria on hold when he received a letter from more than 160 members of the House of Representatives reminding him that to take the country to war without congressional approval is an impeachable offense and when he saw that no country that could serve as cover for a war crime, not even the puppet British government and the NATO puppet states, would support America’s announced military aggression against Syria.

Obama got away with attacking Libya without an OK from Congress, because he used Washington’s NATO puppets and not US military forces. That ploy let Obama claim that the US was not directly involved.

Now that the lack of cover and the challenge from Congress has caused the would-be tyrant Obama to put on hold his attack on Syria, what can we expect?

Great article, and nothing but agreement from me. Would elaborate: it's not the all-powerful that compel US actions any longer. It is my opinion that the near universal rejection of this war by the United States population, as evident in the overwhelming on-line negativity to such action, assisted by world-wide population abhorrence, is the one argument that resonates. It rings so loudly in the halls of the Executive, that a scurrying behind the apron of the Legislative was its only option left. It has yet to get into the heads of this military-industrial-executive mind set that the tax paying citizens of this country and indeed the world have had it up to their necks with the expense and death tolls of the practice of war. Syria is where the buck stops, so it appears from world opinion. Attempted control by elected decision makers and those who influence them is diminishing. The influence of personal opinion is on the rise through the gift of the internet, as this comment attests.

Front Page, please. Excellent Article lays it all out there.

"No one really knows if the 160 or so members of the House are sincere about putting Obama on notice, or whether they simply want something."

Thanks for posting this, Libertybelle!
