Obama and Syria: Britain has helped Obama rediscover the Constitution. No need to thank us, America – Telegraph Blogs.

I too think this is a very shrewd move by President Obama to gain Congressional approval; he claims that that military intervention in Syria is not time limited so this gives him room for further leverage using the US’s full weight.

I support the return to democracy.

Let me now turn this to an open question:

Should President Hollande now seek French parliamentary approval before military intervention in Syria?

Any views?

  1. In 2008, when Barack Obama was campaigning for the American presidency in Germany, he derided and decried the “unilateralism” of George Bush in attacking Iraq. NB: If recruiting a coalition of over 40 sovereign states to take out Saddam Hussein was “unilateralism”, then what Barack Obama is doing now is geopolitical masturbation.
