This is a ridiculous waste of time and taxpayer dollars by led by John Boehner, Speaker of the House, and the GOP. For a start, its a police action not a war involving our commitment to the UN (which by the way I do not favor). If the GOP wants to bring an end to war funding draining this nation of it's resources, material, financial, and human they would do better to bring and end to Iraq and Afhganistan Wars who's expenses have dragged on far too long, and their country rebuilding programs there and aide that have been a total waste of US dollars!! Congress should also consider Pakistan as a terrorist harboring country like Libya and take action before the UN to place them on the list as such, and stop all US funding and trade with the country. With allies like Pakistan playing both sides of the fence, we don't need enemies with friends like these with their hands out.

Ridiculous waste of time and taxpayer dollars . . .? It's a waste of time and taxpayer dollars for us to even BE over there. Obama stated that there would "no boots" on the ground and yet we have boots on the ground. Continuing to have Obama in the White House is a waste of time and taxpayer dollars. I seem to recall a time in History about another "police action" in which the president didn't need to get authorization for involvement. How many soldiers were lost then? How long did that drag out?
As for Afghan and Iraq, yes we should pull out ALL troops from that region. We accomplished what we set out to do. We liberated Iraq to the join the Iraqi People and we have retired Bin Laden. At least with Bush Sr. he accomplished his object in Kuwait and then stopped.

Complain ALL YOU Want !
Somewhere in the process, be sure to Thank the Real Culprit, of Blame, Bill Clinton. He Gave Away Our Sovereignty, by allowing the United Nation's Absolute Control of Our Military. Security Council B@llsh$t !!!
And the Biggest part of it is, WE the People PAY for ALL of It. Several US Marines underwent General Court's Martial, by Refusing to Serve in & under Their Command Structure and WON. They were Acquitted. This Organization's Constitution has a sentenced included: "To foster and perpetuate a 100% Americanism". Shouldn't have to even mention Upholding the US Constituion & Bill of Rights, here. So, any Godd@mn Member with the Liberal notion and thoughts, that the USA is much better off under the Control of the United Nations or NATO. Is a Complete Moron !!!

How soon we forget !! Patroit 47 refers to Police Action
and not to worry . Evidently he is confused with history
Korea in the 50's was reffered to as a Police Action . How long did that last and how many died !! Vietnam in the 60's was a Police Action !! How long did that last and how many died there . Check your history folks !
Obama has violated the War Powers Act and he chooses to
ignore the 1973 agreement . We have no business in Libya
and the way things are going in Afghanistan we should
leave that as well . As an old tired veteran been there
done that .
