[quote=“jotham”]I don’t think the Constitution really gives a damn what the UN standard definition of anything is or international law for that matter. [/quote] I don’t think the Constitution is capable of giving or taking a damn
[quote=“jotham”]The Constitution only cares what Congress thinks.[/quote] Let’s ignore your use of cares, which the Constitution cannot do, and assume you meant something else. You’re still wrong, because Constitutional power does not rest solely with Congress.
[quote=“jotham”]Certainly nations can mutually declare war on each other, but just because one nation does, (if Syria does, ha), doesn’t mean the other must. [/quote] That’s rather obvious, even if very poorly worded.
[quote=“jotham”]What other countries policy is on war, whatever.[/quote] Can anyone provide an English translation of this?
[quote=“jotham”]Republican presidents don’t engage in keep-the-peace, or humanitarian wars, such as Kosovo. Only Democrats. [/quote] Right, like Iraq… humanitarian wasn’t one of the 37,567 reason given for that war.
[quote=“jotham”]Standard Republican military philosophy is to get in there, really engage the enemy, conquer the whole country to win the war as fast as possible, and rely and trust on military brass advice as much as possible while you’re at it. [/quote] Like Shock and Awe. I remember. The war went on for how long after victory was declared?
[quote=“jotham”]Democrats always micromanage wars and generals, which is why they historically end up being so long, ineffective, and bloody. Until Clinton discovered the convenient, untroublesome (though inefficacious) air-force-strike way of war, and Obama loves his toy drones.[/quote] So democrats always micromanage wars, unless they don’t under the examples you have provided. You proved yourself wrong before you had finished the sentence.
I have to hand it to Jotham, he’s consistent: All posts are either incoherent or flat out wrong.
