    The problem I am having is the way this is all being handled. I think it's good to get congressional approval but why now coming off a Kerry rally to arms speech yesterday? This is just one big show of this administrations lack of ability to handle foreign policy situations. It is exactly why it was a big topic raised during the debates. Sometimes you only have one shot at getting things right and this is getting worse by the day. So glad The Lord is in control. It is becoming very clear now why the US seems to have been left out of the end times picture.

Our hands are tied, there is no way out; this tells me that America's unraveling has reached another milestone, and it is through divine measure. This is a significant moment in American history that, I believe, signals God is ready to turn His eyes back to His people, Israel, to deal with their unbelief, and to wrap up this dispensation of human history. Again, there is no way out or through, only up! And Israel stands alone except that there is one over her who neither sleeps nor slumbers. He is all that Israel needs and Israel is about to encounter Him in a very real way.
    Amen!

    If he's so serious about striking, why doesn't he just call Congress back into session right now? He can do that.

    His wishy-washiness must be making Israel's enemies giddy with excitement. This would be the perfect time for Israel to just go ahead and launch a pre-emptive strike on Iran.

    I'm waiting for some "emergency" (think another attack) in Syria to negate the possibility of waiting for Congressional approval. In other words, if something else happens before Sept. 9th (which is very close to 9/11, I might add), Obama might decide he can't wait on Congress and just unilaterally decide to strike. If he seems to think the situation is so immediate and so dire, why doesn't he insist that Congress come back before the vacation is over? Maybe he's waiting in order to give someone time to do something in Syria (as others have suggested, for Assad to hide assets or something), but wouldn't it be funny indeed if Congressional leaders decided this was important enough to call their members back for emergency session well before Sept 9th? I mean, if it's THAT important, by all means our elected officials should be able and willing to cut their own holidays short, right, and not wait on Obama to call them back or wait for the holiday to be over?

    What if they all voted "present." Did not vote yea or nay. Isn't that what Obama always did? Wonder what he would do then....
