    Liberal Democrats in Uproar over Libya Action
    by John Bresnahan & Jonathan Allen

    WASHINGTON - A hard-core group of liberal House Democrats is questioning the constitutionality of U.S. missile strikes against Libya, with one lawmaker raising the prospect of impeachment during a Democratic Caucus conference call on Saturday.

    Reps. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), Donna Edwards (Md.), Mike Capuano (Mass.), Dennis Kucinich (Ohio), Maxine Waters (Calif.), Rob Andrews (N.J.), Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas), Barbara Lee (Calif.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D.C.) “all strongly raised objections to the constitutionality of the president’s actions” during that call, said two Democratic lawmakers who took part.

    ...

    And liberals fumed that Congress hadn’t been formally consulted before the attack and expressed concern that it would lead to a third U.S. war in the Muslim world.

    ...

    “They consulted the Arab League. They consulted the United Nations. They did not consult the United States Congress,” one Democrat lawmaker said of the White House. “They’re creating wreckage, and they can’t obviate that by saying there are no boots on the ground. … There aren’t boots on the ground; there are Tomahawks in the air.”

    ...

    [UK Defence Minister Liam] Fox said it was possible that allied forces might treat Gaddafi himself as a legitimate target for air strikes.

    Have we come to the assassination of political leaders? I thought that was against international law.

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

    Qaddafi is not a civilian. He holds the rank of Colonel. He is a legitimate military target.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Why is he still a colonel, why no promotion?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
