    Mostly because I know the House of Reps are so dysfunctional and clownish that they probably couldn't even get it to the floor for a vote.

      ...coming from I personally just wish for once the politicians would not use the decision to use or not use our military as an opportunity to score political points.  War is too damn, important is too damn weak a word but I can't think of the right word now, to be used as a political football.

      We Glory in war, in the shedding of human blood. What fools we are.

        The art of war is of vital importance to the State. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected.
