    I think we absolutely shouldn't attack Syria.  Your major premise that Congress needs to be recalled into session to authorize the President to attack Syria is what I'm disagreeing with.  Congress has already given the President that power.

    Congress should be recalled back into session to repeal the nearly unlimited powere of the Authorization for Use of Military Force.

    Repeal that and then if Syria requires further action, proceed with caution.

      the strikes will happen.

      I'm less sure that Congress has already given the authority, and you can be very sure that the GOP would seriously consider impeachment. That would nicely wreck any second-term agenda.

      I'd rather we had the debate up front.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.

        In your statement.  A year ago the GOP was gunning for an attack on Syria, today they are the party requesting restraint.
