Will there be a congressional vote?

Or will the king attack on his own? Why is it OK for the US to take these type of actions against terrorist but not Israel?

 

snip-

The White House, under political pressure to respond forcefully to the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, is readying strike forces and drones but first has to find a target.

And if the administration does find a target, officials say it still has to weigh whether the short-term payoff of exacting retribution on al-Qaida is worth the risk that such strikes could elevate the group's profile in the region, alienate governments the U.S. needs to fight the group in the future and do little to slow the growing terror threat in North Africa.

Re: Will there be a congressional vote?

The pressure should be coming from the media, if they were doing their job. But, most if not all of the pressure is coming from conservative media blogs on the internet.

Where is ABC, NBC,CBS,CNN, MSNBC on  this? A Ambassador was killed.

Note the part about training and equipping a special force in libya.  How many countries do we need to be active in?  We are out of control.

Not only that, how many times has it come back to bite us in the rump?  I mean we were the ones supplying Bin Laden in his fight against the Russians.  We equipped Noriega once upon a time.  It seems like almost every time we get active in a country we eventually find trouble there.

  It's a Tar Baby lose-lose situation, hitting the Tar Baby is a tarp the imperialist war mongers can't resist, they just want to get in to put a puppet in position, but it's just playing into their hands, wasting our wealth until we are finished, like the Soviet Union in Afghanistan..  The only ones who will benefit are the zionists.

That's because we use the "enemy of my enemy is my friend" theory until we don't need them anymore and then we trashcan them.
