Today we learn this is not a war. Obama's Wednesday night speech in which he outlined his strategy for fighting the Islamic State (ISIS) does not mean America is going back to war, says National Security adviser Susan Rice.
The difference, she said, is that there will be no American ground troops, "which is what I think the American people think of when they think of a war."
“I think frankly this is a counter-terrorism operation that will take time. It will be sustained," Rice said, who repeatedly emphasized no American ground troops will be involved.
This is what Obama thinks as well because he stated he did not have to have the consent of congress for this action. He clearly needs the consent of congress to declare war according to the Constitution of the United States.
The audacity of this regime is something we have not seen in our lifetimes. This is a direct quote of Obama, “I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.”
Obama is also saying by his actions he understands what does and does not constitute war while nobody else does, and he knows military strategy better than anybody else as well. This sounds like a monarch who knows all and is above all and any law. He has assumed the role of emperor.
