Can the U. S. Congress be ignored by the President to wage war in Libya ?? ... while the United Nations is given Great Importance as the ruling organism of the Whole World ??
I am far from being an "Imperialist", but this question is very troubling and perturbing !
If your aim is to push the American Empire into Decadence and Decline, then the most effective method is to start new wars of "Nation Building" in Muslim or Arab Lands, or anywhere.
The last news and facts support my constant "demential and obsessive" theorizing, that may seem very stupid to many people.
I have always speculated or theorized the DeWesternization and DeWhitenization of the World, this is what has been happening for 120 years according to my vision, appraisal, evaluation.
This is not really preaching, this is valuating and appraising things and historical events. These are my studies, right or wrong.

Blithely off to war - Has President Obama thought Libya through?

Blithely off to war
Some excerpts :
But if Khadafy can't be beaten by the rebels, are we prepared to supply their military deficiencies? If the decapitation of his regime produces what the removal of Saddam Hussein did -- bloody chaos -- what then are our responsibilities regarding the tribal vendettas we may have unleashed? How long are we prepared to police the partitioning of Libya?
Explaining his decision to wage war, Obama said Khadafy has "lost the confidence of his own people and the legitimacy to lead." Such boilerplate seems designed to anesthetize thought. When did Khadafy lose his people's confidence? When did he have legitimacy?
American doctrine is that governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. So there are always many illegitimate governments. When is it America's duty to scrub away these blemishes on the planet? Is there a limiting principle of humanitarian interventionism? If so, would Obama take a stab at stating it?
Congress' power to declare war resembles a muscle that has atrophied from long abstention from proper exercise. This power was last exercised on June 5, 1942 (against Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary), almost 69 years, and many wars, ago.
It thus may seem quaint, and certainly is quixotic, for Indiana's Richard Lugar -- ranking Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee -- to say, correctly, that Congress should debate and vote on this.
There are those who think that if the United Nations gives the United States permission to wage war, the Constitution becomes irrelevant. Let us find out who in Congress supports this proposition, which should be resoundingly refuted, particularly by Republicans insisting that government, and especially the executive, should be on a short constitutional leash. If all GOP presidential aspirants are supine in the face of unfettered presidential war-making and humanitarian interventionism, the GOP field is radically insufficient.
