The world waits. Will they strike? Everyone you ask has a different take. In my view, I see political posturing to allow the American people to answer if they will strike or not.
Considering all spending bills must go through the House of Representatives, then be approved in equals terms in the Senate, this vote places responsibility for another military intervention on a vote from the People’s representative. After all, we live in a representative democracy.
Logistically, when you have a Republican controlled House, they could appear as savior for approving the spending, or they could appear as war mongers. Both extreme contrasts, however, so are people in the electorate. Don’t worry Republicans, remember the Democrats control the Senate, and at the end of day the decision and the result will reflect on both governing bodies. One more active, and the other more passive, in the end results
If the people have an opinion, they must contact their elected representative and senator to voice their thoughts. If they have an opinion and don’t VOICE it to Congress, their lack of inaction or action also will contribute to the success or failure of the result of a strike in Syria. When congress votes, the results are representative of the People’s voice.
Do we strike Syria? Are you amping up for another 10 years? How have participated in this process?
