Obama Runs Away from the War on Terrorism By Alan Caruba

“You may not be interested in war, but war may be interested in you.” — Leon TrotskyIf you think about the presidents who we remember and honor the most,

it is those who faced war and rallied the nation to victory. Our first president, George Washington, sustained the Revolutionary War for eight long years against daunting odds, including a Continental Congress that often provided little support for the men under his command that were fighting to create a new, free nation.

 

By Alan Caruba

 

Washington’s reputation in war and peace is the reason that the Constitution designates the President as Commander-in-Chief.

He was so highly regarded for his conduct of the Revolution that the Founders concluded that future presidents had to be free to wage war, but only after Congress declared that a state of war existed.America, however, has not formally passed a declaration of war since WWII and then because it had been declared against us first.

 

Since then wars have often been fought under the sanction given by the United Nations as was the case in the Korean conflict and the two Gulf wars, an erosion of our national sovereignty.
