Can’t have any rationality in diplomacy


#23

So what are you arguing, that we don’t need an ambassador? Got it.

OMG !!! Monte are you still quoting CNN ??? :roll_eyes: shrug …There ratings are lower than re-runs of Little House on the Prairie !!! :laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing:

Not at all. You were shouting doom and gloom about some guy who didn’t get a job. Then you went on to claim that…

I was pointing out to you that there is in fact someone fulfilling the duties of ambassador - a career diplomat. That’s just a fact.

Well you’ve done a fine job of distraction, but the op and the purpose of this thread is to draw attention to two things. One, that the president wants to conduct a preemptive strike on North Korea, and two, a principled man told him he wouldn’t be a party to it. Now the fact that a year into the Trump presidency we still don’t have an ambassador to South Korea is a side issue, and itself a fact. And, if the career dip is doing so well, why do you suppose the president was seeking to place an ambassador in Seoul?


#28

Nope, this is about the United States once again planning an unconstitutional attack on a country that HAS NOT first attacked us!!!


#29

Show us ‘unconstitutional’ or quit making the claim…


#30

Mr. Know it all strikes again.

He’s now quoting Politico, ROTFLMAO.

His true colors come out when he posts his links, Politico, CNN

Well sure. But then that would not be a preemptive attack. If the constitution itself wasn’t enough, the 1973 War Powers Act adds clarity. Passed by a veto proof majority in Congress, it’s telling that Nixon wanted to veto it. Now Cha says that the White House is mulling a preemptive strike on North Korea. The question is, would it be with or without a congressional declaration of war, or at least a AUMF.

Sooo… We have backed away from our ‘Unconstitutional’ claim and fall back on the war powers act… it only takes a second to launch a few missiles… and he wouldn’t really committing troops for months… As far as a declaration of war. The war powers act was passed specifically because presidents committed US forces for years in Korea and Vietnam… not to sound partisan but, who but a democrat up to Dessert Storm started any wars? Anyway… it only seems like people have concern over congress actually doing anything… Except of course when a president takes away another presidents executive order…
