Obama ploy as follows
Wait for Congress approval.
Yes tantamount to a Declaration of War looks positively Constitutional
No exercises war power anyway looks strong in face of gridlocked Congress
Yes spends resources aged missiles, eases deficit fight
No spends aged missiles anyway embarrasses Congress which has what 9% approval rating? Solidifies monarchical leftist approach to a Presidency with Republican WarvPowers act precedence. Deficit debt ceiling still a fight but Congess relegated to squabbling and doing nothing.
Yes looks cooperate and graduate oriented
No can say "I tried"?
Yes leads to changed minds about boots on the ground including Internationals like Brits who balked.
No leads to boots on ground with President resolidifying power in spite of now puppet Congress.
See how that works? Delay costing lives in Syria? Whats a few lives there, if we cant make some points here?
War weary? You aint seen nothing yet. Targets being developed as Assad moves weapons all over a drone fiilled satellite illuminated sky.
And finally yes or no by Congress covers final mystery --who firedchemical weapons, Assad rebels or is this false flag, since we are passed tat consideration
