Libya

Well, the deadline for obtaining congressional approval under the War Powers Act has passed, and it is clear that our President doesn't give a crap that he currently has our military engaged in an illegal war with Libya. This pisses me off too much to speak reasonably. See here and here for more info/opinion.

This isn't about the war per se, it's about following the damn law. The President needs some form of congressional approval for a war within 60 days, or he has to remove the troops from the conflict. He's chosen instead to just pretend the law doesn't apply. And our pusillanimous Congress is too cowardly to call him out on it. Every time I think I'm too cynical about politics, stuff like this happens. Sigh...
