Libyan no fly zones, UN resolutions and the US Constitution

Lots of political buzz regarding a possible UN resolution authorizing any and all military action in Libya.

Military action or not, I hate to tell the One Worlders here in America this -- UN resolutions aren't worth the paper they're written on.

That is unless they've been presented to the United States Senate first by the American President, and then only if approved by two thirds of the Senate.

Says who? The Founding Fathers, that's who.

Remember Article II, Section 2 of The United States Constitution?

It clearly states; "He [the President] shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur..."Continue reading...

You are way out of date on this one. We did away with the constitution requirements starting with Korea, Vietnam, gulf war 1-2 or 3. Last declared war was WWII. Now they are police actions or something else. Why congress has not demanded that acts of war be brought to them for vote and approval per the constitution is beyond me. W. Bush went to Congress for authorization, but made it clear he was going to go in no matter what to first Afghanistan and then Iraq. WE have a global war on terror with no war declaration or vote because there is no state to declare war on.

I wish we could get back to voting as per the constitution because it would have to be with massive public approval to declar war. I suspect if W. Bush had gone to congress the day after 9/11, he could have achieved a vote on just about anything as witness of the vote after Pearl Harbor. Hell, everyone knew FDR was trying to force either Germany or Japan to attack us to get un into the war. he had long violated in every way that which a neutral country can do to stay neutral. He wanted war, despite promising to win a third term to keep our boys out of that war, a clear lie when he said it.

We should have exited the UN about two minutes after getting in. Libya heads the civil rights section of the UN this year. What a joke
