This ought to make the hair stand up on the back of your neck…
Barack Obama is now allowing the US military to be “voluteered by others” to do dangerous service work for the international community.
And that’s why building this international coalition has been so important because it means that the United States is not bearing all the cost. It means that we have confidence that we are not going in alone, and it is our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions that are important not only to us, but are important internationally. And we will accomplish that in a relatively short period of time.
Ace added this on today’s stunning admission by our new age Commander in Chief:
Obama seems to be such a believer in the extra-constitutional, or, more accurately, anti-constitutional view that it is the “international community,” whatever that is, that confers constitutional legality in matters of war rather than the body of Americans actually granted such power in the great national charter that he feels no need to pay even token, false lip service to the contrary position.
If Obama merely meant “We seek no empire, and come to this fight reluctantly, only at the request of foreign allies,” well, he could have said that.
Implicit in the words this rara avis literary genius actually chose is the idea that foreign citizens have a more important role in determining America’s status of “at peace” or “at war” than American citizens.
“Just words”? Obama himself gave many speeches, written for him by David Axelrod and previously used by Axelrod-client and Obama proof-of-concept prototype Devall Patrick, that words are not “just words” but full of crucial meaning.
