37. True enough...
It's not the most comfortable position for me either...

Reality has a way of kicking you in the guts and forcing you to make exceptions to every rule...

I also consider myself to be non violent but I recognise that there are situations where I could be as violent as anyone...Also an uncomfortable recognition of reality vs. my ideals.

Here in this case I believe that stopping a slaughter that was sure to occur outwieghed the ability to wait for the formality of a joint resolution and that Obama did comply with the war powers act.

I also believe that this situation is unique in the fact that it did gain a UN resolution, the people of Libya asked for help.

If they try to take it further than this...I don't know if I can contiune to support this.

Like I said...I reserve judgment.
