Pat Buchanan: Obama's Syrian Strike Would Be "Impeachable"

Patrick J. Buchanan tells Newsmax if President Obama decides to attack Syria without Congressional authorization, he would be engaging in "what would clearly be an impeachable act."

"The key figure is Speaker of the House John Boehner, who should call the House of Representatives back into session on Monday and instruct the president directly: Mr. President, you have no authority and no right to launch acts of war against Syria against whom we have not declared or authorized any war. We are calling on you not to engage in what would clearly be an impeachable act starting a war against a country without the approval of the Congress when you are asked directly not to do so," Buchanan, a former presidential candidate, told Newsmax on Thursday.

"If the president launched an unnecessary and unconstitutional war, striking a country against whom we have not declared war and has not attacked us, that is de facto an impeachable act that could lead to an open-ended war, the consequences of which we cannot even see," the political commentator and author also said.

7. If the pro-peace left wants this voted down they need to find common cause with the crusty-old-right


This is what politics is all about - forcing groups that hate each other to work together on the issues they agree on. LOL

8. Well that's how it was in opposing the Persian Gulf War.

Buchanan opposed that fiasco as well.

As always, activists on the left have to be vigilant with those right-wingers even when tactically engaging them.
