    Judge Napolitano: Syria Resolution Intentionally Vague So Obama Can Put Boots On The Ground - Liberty Crier
    JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO: Itís a tremendous amount of wiggle room for a couple of reasons. As a practical matter, as your previous guest Aaron just said, when you send missiles into a country, you need boots on the ground to guide the missiles where theyíre going to land. So Secretary Kerry may very well shrewdly have been mincing words. The government considers military troops out of uniform, out of uniform, or CIA in their nonuniform garb not to be Ďboots on the ground.í
    So I would have asked Secretary Kerry, will the American military or will American intelligence agents be on the ground, whether you consider them boots or not? Itís inconceivable that we can send the type of missiles over there that the president and his Republican allies in Congress now contemplate, Sen. McCain leading the charge, without some American human beings, whether theyíre wearing boots or not, to be on the ground. So, Secretary Kerry, in my view, was misleading the Congress.
    Now hereís the Constitutional issue. The Constitution says only the Congress can declare war but the president wages it. The president canít declare war and Congress canít wage it. What does that mean? That means that once the Congress gives authorization for the president to bring down either the chemical weaponry of the Assad regime, or as Senator McCain wants, the Assad regime itself, the Congress canít pull the president back. The Congress canít tell the president how to wage war.
    Politicians seem to talk out both sides of their mouths and sometimes bark out their a$$ because their mouth knows better. Kerry has been slick before what makes anyone think that is being 100% honest now. Boots on the ground can mean a lot of different things and in this aspect none of them are going to be good for the Armed Forces.
    At this point we are too little too late, too many outside factions have set their sites on a piece of Syria and there is no way of know who is who and which is which. We will end up helping our enemies to create terror against us at home and abroad. Had we done something prior when it was really Syrians fight Assad we could have been helping them and ourselves. Not now.

    You couldn't have said it any better.They're never held responsible for there words or actions anymore.I know there has always been people throughout history wanting to drag this country down,but NEVER this openly.And it seems like so many people just don't care.

    How does this fit into general firearm discussion?

    This is far from the first time Kerry has "misled" congress. Start about 40+ years ago.
