It Really Is "War Without End"

Congressional groups eager to have America wrap up its military presence in Iraq and get out are being told that Congress lost any say in the matter when it voted, in 2002, to authorize the Bush regime to invade Iraq.


From the Washington Post:

"The 2002 measure, along with the congressional resolution passed one week after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks authorizing military action "to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States," permits indefinite combat operations in Iraq, according to a statement by the State Department's Bureau of Legislative Affairs."

Uppity lawmakers with fanciful ideas of checks and balances and government of the people, had been demanding, "...that the administration submit to Congress for approval any agreement with Iraq. U.S. officials are traveling to Baghdad this week with drafts of two documents - a status-of-forces agreement and a separate "strategic framework" - that they expect to sign with the Iraqi government by the end of July."

The monarch, it seems, disagrees. Jeez I think there's still time to impeach the clown.
