Paul: Trump Needs Congressional Authorization for Military Action

“While we all condemn the atrocities in Syria, the United States was not attacked. The President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate. Our prior interventions in this region have done nothing to make us safer, and Syria will be no different.”

— Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), quoted by The Hill, after the U.S. launched airstrikes in Syria.

Poetic Justice

An Autocratic Hypocrite

So now Trump has attacked the chemical-bombing Syrians,
And Putin has responded by calling us international barbarians.
Really, Mr. Putin?
How’d you get so high-falutin’?
And how does your hypocrisy play among the Crimeans and Ukrainians?
