There is not a day that goes by that President Trump is not the subject of criticism from Democrats and Never-Trumpers within his own party. Pick almost any day’s criticism and you will hear the childish cries of the sheltered, the weak, and the entitled masters of our society.
The President is pulling Americans out of Syria. The experts are awash in tears shed for an oppressive Syrian government. The President’s action is a little overdue and undertaken for the wrong reason, but at least it is being done. Members of Congress need to quit crying…they have themselves to blame.
Only the Congress has the Constitutional right to declare war. Calling Americans fighting and dying a police action, a conflict, or “allied” support is playing at semantics. Every American GI in the Middle East needs to come home now unless Congress is willing to stand up and vote for war…not funding a fight…a declaration of war and nothing less. Without such action, the Commander-in-Chief is duty bound to bring our troops home.
Congress will never declare war again because its members, like most American, don’t want to stand up, throw politics aside, and be responsible for defending our interests. A declaration of war is a demand for victory. Except for the Geneva Convention, war has no rules, no restrictive zones, and no being tried in court for killing the enemy like the games we’ve been playing since the Sixties. War is hell and unless our government is prepared to unleash hell, it is better for members of Congress to sit down, shut up and let the Commander-in-Chief bring our troops home.
Unfortunately, in the last sixty-eight years, we have not learned that lesson. American men and women keep dying for the whims of our representative government which cannot muster the guts to do its job. If Congress and the President prefer police actions and localized conflicts, we have no need to go any further than our southern border where police action is desperately called for.
Those suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome remind me of the hypocrites of old.
“And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like? They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept.
For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil. The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! But wisdom is justified of all her children.”
