WEB Notes: We posted his Tweet below. This is not how a President is supposed to act. Besides, as Gwen said in a comment, you do not tell the enemy your military plans. During times long ago that was considered treason, yet our elected officials have been announcing their plans for theater, I mean war for years.
Ken Clarke, former chancellor and father of the House of Commons, has said parliament should be recalled this weekend if the cabinet backs military intervention in Syria.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s World at One programme he said: “In a modern parliamentary democracy you’ve got to have parliamentary approval if you have a planned policy decision to launch a military attack.”
The Tory grandee said he would back targeted strikes but only after a debate in parliament. He said: “The government must get approval for such an important policy before it acts. As it happens they would get my support for a proportionate well-targeted attack that was hitting some significant facilities that were associated with the use of chemical weapons. If we don’t do that then Assad keeps trying his hand and he will feel uninhibited.”
Never said when an attack on Syria would take place. Could be very soon or not so soon at all! In any event, the United States, under my Administration, has done a great job of ridding the region of ISIS. Where is our “Thank you America?”
